40 Berlin clubs and collectives to be awarded €10,000 to celebrate the return of clubbing
The initiative is called Tag Der Clubkultur - 'Day of Club Culture'
Tag Der Clubkultur is being reintroduced by Berlin Club Commission to celebrate re-opening and Berlin’s club culture being restored.
The initiative was launched last year, awarding €10,000 to clubs or collectives to host events. This year there will be 40 awards made to clubs or collectives in the city.

DJ Gigola, Pansy, Whitney Wei and a number of other artists form the panel deciding the winners.
"While the focus of the day of club culture last year was on clarifying the emergency situation and the importance of Berlin's clubs and organizers, this year's activities aim to focus optimism on the revival of Berlin's club culture," said the Berlin Club Commission in a statement.
