Der Grüne Kiez (The Green Neighbourhood) is our lively section at Lollapalooza Berlin dedicated to sustainable, earth-friendly commerce and initiatives. It is a place for introducing and experiencing projects and solutions for designing a better society worth living in. Sustainability is an important guiding principle in our society, and it means more than ‘just’ protecting the environment – true sustainability also means taking the economy and social affairs into account.

As an area dedicated to fun and the joy of living, Der Grüne Kiez is the perfect place to get this message across. Visitors to Der Grüne Kiez can learn about sustainable projects, innovations and ideas. This is a place for you to join in, try things out, and have a hand in shaping the future.


Our 2018 motto: 1000 colours of diversity

At Lollapalooza Berlin, you’ll encounter people from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures in a unique atmosphere. You’ll meet people of different generations, with different mindsets and physical preconditions, with different gender identities and sexual orientation. What connects us is, of course, the music, which we celebrate and enjoy together at this big festival!

Just as we want to celebrate human diversity, we want to include nature’s diversity in this year’s motto as well. Our environment is part of us as much as we are a part of our environment. At the Grüner Kiez, we want to set an example through mutual respect, tolerance, mindfulness and peaceful coexistence and get involved with a diverse range of campaigns, ideas and activities.

Let’s all make the “1000 colours of diversity” blossom at the Grüner Kiez!

Our cooperation partner 2018: TAKE A STAND

It‘s time to take a stand for Europe, and indeed for the whole world. To create a movement encouraging social cohesion in our society, promoting awareness and tolerance for all cultures, genders, races, religions, sexual orientations, colours and origins. To motivate people to participate in politics and social activities, speaking up for peaceful dialogue, humanism, tolerance and mutual understanding, to make the world a better place for every single individual and for all of us.

We are the creators and distributors of European music and culture, providing music, creativity, art and design to millions of young people every year. Our activities are aimed at bringing people together, and our intentions are to relate fully to our audiences, peacefully and joyfully creating and developing a community through sharing our passion for music and culture.

Take A Stand is a joint initiative by Yourope, the association of European music festivals and its partners. Take A Stand events take place at various music festivals and live music events, addressing music fans on and offline. Take A Stand is a campaign with a mission to keep our society intelligent, open and human. We invite everybody to take action and to join our initiative at this years Der Grüne Kiez!
