HYTE returns to its home base of Berlin on New Year’s Eve 2018 for a 24-hour marathon of its annual flagship festival. The venue for this occasion is once again Funkhaus, a complex of buildings which provides the setting for performances from headliners such as Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Pan-Pot, Amelie Lens and Stephan Bodzin, Anthea, Archie Hamilton, Gregor Tresher, Djebali, Fabio Florido, Guti, Butch, wAFF, Ferro, Woody and Yaya, to name but a few.
Started in 2014, each year for the brand ends with HYTE NYE Berlin. Funkhaus in Berlin is located next to the River Spree and, dating back to 1951, it used to be the largest radio-broadcasting site in the world.
Today it is a treasure trove for Berlin's music culture. It mixes modernist, clear Bauhaus design with architecture and cavernous industrial halls. Both rooms of HYTE NYE Berlin are based in the gigantic Shedhalle, a part of Funkhaus Berlin, a vast warehouse space, with arched ceilings, steel girders and proper industrial aesthetics, overlooked by a huge gallery.
In the last year, HYTE brought events to New York, London, Miami, Vietnam, Amsterdam, Eindhoven and the MDRNTY cruise on the Mediterranean Sea, while HYTE NYE Berlin is the flagship event that brings visitors from all over the globe to Berlin - more than 60% of the crowd apparently comes from outside Germany.
