Berlin’s Tempodrom increases cap. by 20%

The Tempodrom in Berlin, Germany, has undergone an extensive conversion and renovation, increasing capacity and adding new features as the venue comes up to its 20th year.

Due to the remodelling, the capacity of the venue has grown by 20%, from 3,500 to 4,200.

Seating and grandstands have been modernised, with upgrades to the Tempodrom’s foyer and bar area scheduled for the summer.

A climate-control system has been installed to monitor air quality and carbon dioxide content. Solar panels and a geothermal heat exchanger help to reduce the venue’s energy consumption.

In addition to the internal upgrades, the venue’s wooden roof terrace and outdoor staircases have also undergone renovation.

“Besides the unique atmosphere that the Tempodrom offers, we also want to set new standards in matters of comfort and convenience, and further optimise the Tempodrom for artists, organisers and guests”

“We have used the past few months to give the Tempodrom a makeover,” says the venue’s managing director, Karolin Seemann-Gramsch. “The extensive modernisation measures will contribute to the further strengthening of our venue as a popular location in the domestic and international event market.

“Besides the unique atmosphere that the Tempodrom offers, we also want to set new standards in matters of comfort and convenience, and further optimise the Tempodrom for artists, organisers and guests.”

Artists including Sascha Grammel, Annett Louisan, Liam Gallagher, Milky Chance and Sofi Tukker are performing at Berlin’s Tempodrom over the next few months. The venue will also be the site of the inaugural Berlin edition of Pitchfork Music Festival, taking place from 8 to 9 May 2020.
