Crowdfunding finished
Because of the Coronavirus, we are forced to indefinitely close our beloved venue, and we need the support of the community to survive the large financial burden we now face, so we can reopen our doors as soon as possible. Loophole is a Berlin underground music and art space that offers a stage for independent artists, musicians, DJs and filmmakers and a unique gathering place for the creative souls of the city.

Project description show hide

What is this project all about?

If we cannot open for two months Loophole has to close for good. We want to protect our employees and all our local and international artists and guests and, of course, the place we have all created together.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Our goal is to keep one of the last original and authentic hubs of Berlin culture alive. Every night on Loophole’s stage, we host concerts, performances or screenings. For the next several months we already had concerts and events booked, which have all had to be cancelled and postponed.
This means that about 150 artists will be without a place to showcase their work.

We know we are not the only ones suffering but we are counting on the community that has helped create this place to help keep it alive.

Why would you support this project?

Nearly every night of the week, Loophole offers a place to gather (without a queue) in a unique environment where anyone can come, meet interesting people, enjoy affordable drinks, and discover established and up and coming artists and music from all over the world.
Loophole is essential to Berlin's music and nightlife scene, and without it, many artists, fans, and party people will lose one of the city's most authentic music and arts spaces.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?

With the money we raise we will be able to pay the rent, our employees (who themselves are artists) and other fixed costs necessary to stay afloat. This requires about 5,000 Euros a month. Furthermore we will be able to reschedule events and the artists will be able to present their art.

Who are the people behind the project?

Jan, Ted, Adrian, Mikey, Maxime, Anastasia, Mattia, Sean, Daniela
