Sound of 2014

test copy

2014 has been amazing for us: we celebrated our #100 Session,  we had an overwhelming summer on festivals all over Germany such as Immergut in the woods next to Neustrelitz, Lunatic Festival at Lüneburg or Melt Festival at the impressive industrial setting of Ferropolis in Gräfenhainichen.

It was a year of new&awesome music, too! This is why we asked everyone of the Berlin Sessions-Team to name their favorite session in 2014, their Top3-Albums, their most-heard song and of course their most favorite concert or festival in 2014.

Our personal best of includes anything from house to hardcore, pop to indie, rap to folk and also looks back at a year of filming the most amazing musicians.

We are really looking forward to 2015 and a new year of great sessions, exciting music and amazing festivals!
