The open-air venue has been forced to cancel all events in August
Berlin's OXI Garten has announced it will be closed until further notice, following a series of noise complaints.
The open-air Victoriastadt venue confirmed on Instagram that it would not be able to open this weekend due to local police confiscating their licence.

"Regretfully, the Umweltamt has forced us to close our venue for August, until further notice," OXI said in a statement.
"We have been dealing with repetitive noise complaints from a small but vocal minority of neighbours. despite taking out six-figure loans and grants only for noise insulation and technical reports certifying our compliance with the law,"

OXI was set to welcome Palms Trax, Sky Deep and Dhanesh Jayaselen before its closure on Friday, and Job Jobse, Elias Mazian, I$A and Agyena on Saturday.
OXI has insisted it is "fighting back" to open up again.
"We need to prioritise the safety of our staff and guests until we have a rock-solid legal solution. Otherwise, bureaucrats in Lichtenberg and the Police will continue to aid and abet these neighbours by finding new pretext to harass us."
