The production team at one of the world’s most recognisable club brands, HYTE, has announced today that they plan to step in and take over the construction of the notoriously delayed and over-budget opening of the new so-called Berlin-Brandenburg-Airport (BER), in an attempt to meet the demand of DJs and tourists set to embark on the city ahead of their New Year’s Eve extravaganza, featuring DJs like Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, Stephan Bodzin, Amelie Lens and Pan-Pot, in the iconic Funkhaus venue.
According to reports, Berlin’s Schönefeld and Tegel airports are ill-equipped to deal with the sheer volume of party-revellers likely to be headed to the city for, what is being described by many as, the “biggest celebration the city has seen since the Techno Viking’s 21st Birthday”.
Construction on Berlin-Brandenburg-Airport was originally scheduled to be finished in 2011, but has since had it’s opening date pushed back to 2020 and is currently believed to be about 80% complete. With HYTE hoping to recruit an “army of ravers”, they ensure us that the work will be finished and the airport’s doors opened before the 31st of December 2018.
In an attempt to ensure all of their guests receive the best service possible, HYTE have also hinted at a number of unique features for the new airport, including a direct Metro link to Funkhaus, valet private jet parking and priority boarding for all guests with no restrictions on how many bags they are allowed to carry.
Michael Müller, Mayor of Berlin, is believed to be backing HYTE’s construction proposal, claiming that “true German efficiency dictates the airport should have been completed already.”
“It seems like the only option we have is to allow HYTE to take over construction. At least with those guys we know they’ll get the job done. That’s the last time a Bavarian construction company get a contract in Berlin on my watch,” Müller said during a chat with Wunderground. “My only condition is that Adam Beyer is in charge of the project. I’ve heard he’s really good at building Ikea furniture, so an airport should be pretty straightforward for him.”
Beyer also spoke to Wunderground, “It would be my honour to take control of such a fantastic project,” he told us. “The construction business is actually a lot more similar to the music business than people realise. Creating a techno track is pretty much exactly the same as creating a building, only instead of using synths, high-hats and drum loops, you use concrete, steel and glass. I got this.”
