★ ABOUT SISYPHOS ★
Sisyphos throws some of the city's most unhinged parties, often running from Friday to Monday with no break. Situated close to Ostkreuz in an old DDR dog biscuit factory, Sisyphos has developed into a prestigious club of international standing for electronic music in the capital. Rough and raw industrial architecture blends with the DIY-character of Berlin’s club culture. Bricks, concrete, steel and wood come together, creating a diverse composition that narrates the place’s story and its changing use. The vast exterior space constitutes a natural contrast to the towering building of the former factory. Here, freedom is still to be found and experienced.
