At the beginning of September Berlin will turn into a wild tune of different sounds: The Berlin Music Week 2014 will be held from the 3rd to the 7th September. So what does this mean? It means Berlin turns into the capital of innovative music (if it has ever lost this title). This is the perfect chance for novelty seekers, music business people or just good old music lovers to soak in the music. The Berlin Music Week is divided in two clear parts: the WORD! section for conferences and businesses and the Sound! section for musicians and live events. Check out what each of these sections has to offer in the 2014 edition. Berlin Music Week 2014 from Berlin Music Week on Vimeo.
This section is the perfect opportunity for businesses in the music industry to show their latest products and services. It is also the best place to create synergies between professionals that come from over 30 different countries. There will be workshops, matchmaking and conferences such as the VUT,Indie Days; which will deal with different issues in the field of recording music, interactive, technology and startups.
Three different events will welcome more than 100 artists from around the world, may they be talented newcomers or solid veterans in the stage world.
During the 4th and 5th September the Friedrichshain- Kreuzberg area will hold more than 80 showcases in 10 different clubs. Artists like Kindness, Mankelmutt or Catfish and the Bottlemen will be playing in front of a keen crowd. Note that Berlin Festival ticket holders have a free entrance.

Headlining this year are artists such as Bombay Bicicle Club, Crystal Fighters, Editors, Neneh Cherry, Sven Väth or Sivu will be playing alongside newcomers such as M.A.N.D.Y, Eliza and the Bear and many others.
