Berghain struck by lightning; party continues
Legendary Berlin venue Berghain was struck by lightning Sunday evening during operating hours. Though no one was injured, the blast disabled the club’s air conditioning system and set off the club’s emergency floodlights.
In the true spirit of the underground, the evening continued with DJs playing through the blinding lights and attendees stripping to accommodate the heat. DJ T, who was playing the upstairs Panorama Bar said in a Facebook post: “Never saw so many topless girls and boys in a club…I will never forget that view from the iron stairs down on that ocean of naked flesh waving and pulsating.”
Others in attendance were quick to chime in about the magical (and now legendary) event. Dax J, who was on the decks when the lightning struck, was quick to call the episode one of his favorite sets ever, saying: “The head and energy from the crowd made it super intense, something I hadn’t felt that strong before.”
Only at such an incredible venue could a potentially life endangering natural disaster make the party even better.
