The new GFB 2022 venue is confirmed today as Club OST, an industrial conversion in the historical Ost Hafen (East Harbour) factory building on the banks of the Spree.
Located at the junction of Elsenbrücke (Elsen Bridge) and Stralauer Allee, it is about one kilometer east of the nhow hotel, which is on the same side of the Spree and popular with GFB attendees.
The new GFB 2022 venue is also directly across the river from Treptower Park.
Previously known as Magdalena, the venue underwent an extensive conversion to turn it into one of Berlin’s top techno clubs.
It has one large auditorium and various smaller spaces (see photo gallery below).
With the venue now officially set, GFB host René of Xklusiv has been focusing on reconfirming the acts and shows postponed from the Ball’s 2020 line-up.
Fashion shows so far confirmed on the GFB website for Saturday May 28 include Antidote London Latex and Maniac Latex.
UK latex labels Amentium and Pandora Deluxe have been re-invited; Pandora is now confirmed for the show while Amentium is likely to do the Fair and is considering a show.
Meanwhile we’re waiting to see whether British model/performer Leigh Hutchinson, who MC’d so impressively in 2019, will return as MC for 2022.
Of the remaining designers listed for 2020, only Jaded Jewall has so far been unable to accept the return slot, owing to a previous engagement.
Advance tickets for the Ball on May 28 at €60 are expected to go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday March 1). Tickets on the door at Club OST will cost €65.
Full address of the GFB 2022 venue is:
Club OST, Alt-Stralau 1-2, 10245 Berlin.
