What is this project all about?
The Club Charlotte, on the edge of the city of Münster, has in recent years become a fixed strongpoint of the international electronic music scene. From an old closed venue with a tatty backyard it has been transformed into a beautiful piece of alternative club culture with finest Funktion-One soundsystem including a cozy beach and outdoor area! But now the lease contract is running out and it lacks the financial background required to continue this project and to secure the property.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We want to build a long-term a center for club culture and develop a meeting point for the international (not only) electronic music scene, without losing the living room flair and further expanding the familiar atmosphere, which we have built up and maintained in the last years. This is interesting for all those, who want to experience the best artists of the scene in the highest sound quality in a relaxed atmosphere and also have the possibility of relaxing outside to socialize . Or for those, who just love to celebrate on the highest level in an alternative atmosphere without the posh ambience! That we got chosen for the second time in succession by the readers of FAZE-mag to be in 6th place of the best clubs in the German-speaking region, shows us that we are on the right track!
Why would you support this project?
This project is worthy of support because it's always worth the bother to invest in the trail offside from mainstream and to encourage initiatives on which humanity and business are not excluded. It has been shown that this is the right approach, so there is no doubt , that this may also be a successful one. The scene would lose one of its bases where countless fascinating encounters have happened from which numerous new things have grown, and will grow.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
With the funding target amount, the whole concept will be put on the secure financial side which is needed to give it a long-term future and to provide the grounds for the next 30 years. In the event of any over-financing of the project, everything will be directly invested in further expansion, because we still have a lot to do!
Who are the people behind the project?
The Club Charlotte is operated by the Tante Lotte GmbH. We, the owners Karl Bernd Werning and Georg Willers, have been around in the music scene for decades and are tired of how it is in other clubs and festivals spaces. With our now well practised and like-minded team, we want that our guests feel at home, on the floor, as well as behind the decks. We want to offer the people a club community here, just like the way we have always wished for it.
