Berlin 2017: final programme details have now been announced by the promoters involved in German Fetish Ball Weekend. And we have three pairs of FetishGuerilla tickets to give away!
So it looks like this year’s German Fetish Ball Weekend could well be a real cracker. (And just for the avoidance of doubt, nobody we know of is thinking of returning to Sage for a group dinner — ever again.)
New programme info not available when we published our original GFB preview in February is set out below, in event date order. Note that only Berlin 2017 events for which we have new information are included here.
Check out our original Fetishistas GFB Preview article (link below) for more information about all the GFB Weekend’s events — including venues, full addresses and admission prices.

THURSDAY APRIL 27
Shows booked for this official GFB Weekend launch party have now been announced: there will be performance by Nina de Lianin and Anna Bolika at the event’s new venue, Badehaus Berlin.
FRIDAY APRIL 28
The legendary KitKatClub party’s show line-up of Bondinage latex fashion plus Roc Rocit, Evilyn Frantic (see banner) and Hungry has been expanded to include a performance by Kitty Willenbruch.
Meanwhile, the DJ roster — Faray, Aline & Suné, Räubertöchtäs, Michael Nielebock, Hedo, Schrod, Kasey Riot and Schwoof — now sees the addition of Sören, along with the promise that several DJs will be pairing up on extra sets for this Berlin 2017 edition.
Altogether this constitutes the biggest line-up ever laid on for an FG Revolution night, as well as the biggest space the party has ever occupied within the venue.
That’s because this year, KitKat is opening up the big basement floor not normally used for this party. The new space will be devoted to rock/goth/metal and ’80s/’90s music.
WIN FGR TICKETS! As you may know, tickets for FGR (costing €25 per person) can only be purchased on the door on the night of its Berlin 2017 party.

SUNDAY APRIL 30
New for Berlin 2017, this event takes over part of Matrix, the Ball venue for many Whit Sundays before Spindler & Klatt became available on a Saturday night.
Created as a winding-down event for those who worked or partied hard (or both) during the preceding days, Sonic Boom combines dancefloor sounds from René MD, DJ ALF and DJ Marc with bondage from Amrita and Dutch Dame and karaoke by Karaokekiste.
The latter picks up the baton from the unofficial but popular models’ karaoke night at the karaoke bar just across the road on Warschauer Strasse.

MONDAY MAY 1
We’ve managed to clarify the various different times published in different places for this last Berlin 2017 event, held at Cayetano. Official start time is 11am, but we’re reliably informed that turning up later is fine as it usually extends until at least mid-afternoon.
The late Alexander Horn, an erstwhile regular at this brunch, will no doubt be sadly missed this year by everyone who was accustomed to seeing his cheery face at this closing event, and indeed at the other events of the weekend. RIP Alexx.
