Can you get in Berghain Virtually



Berlin’s Berghain is notorious for its strict door policy and for hundreds of people it can be a wasted trip, after being turned away.

Now, though, someone has set up a new virtual program, that takes the process to its most personal and gives you practice gaining entry to the club. Berghain Trainer is pretty simple idea, a Point of View camera walks up to the club, through its snaking queue where you meet “Sven” (not the real one), who asks you 3 questions such as “How old are?”, “Are you on drugs tonight?”, “Is this your first time?”, Where have you come from?” and “Who’s playing tonight?”.

Facial recognition software is used to analyse your body language on the levels of “anger”, “sadness”, “amazed” and “euphory” to decide if you make the cut. Then you’re either let in or sent on your way.

Head to Berghaintrainer.com to try your luck.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
