Netzfest 19 in retrospective

The film for Netzfest 2019 has arrived and we are reminiscing! A good occasion to review the interactive, colourful programme and the unforgettable atmosphere on site - and also to say THANK YOU:

We would like to thank the more than 100 speakers and 10,000 visitors who attended this year! 
THANK YOU to the nonprofit projects, associations and foundations that have participated with so much enthusiasm in making Berliners "netzfest" (net proof).

A big thank you also goes to the German Museum of Technology for the free admission to the "das Netz" exhibition, the special guided tours and the varied programme from VR glasses to toothbrush robots.

Netzfest would not be possible without the support of our partners. THANK YOU to Lotto Stiftung Berlin, Grün Berlin, the German Museum of Technology, TINCON, rbb, radioeins, DINAMIX and Kulturplakatierung!

Netzfest

In the second year of Netzfest, the focus was once again on getting involved and doing things yourself. Whether in the "Hacking Box" of Technologiestiftung or in Trickmisch's mobile language laboratory, testing an intelligent weather station or building and controlling robots: Interactive technologies to feel and experience were the focus of the programme.

The offline version of "Wahl-o-Mat" by Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung inspired discussions and exchange on the European elections.

At the booths, visitors were able to get to know Berlin associations and clubs such as "Omas Gegen Rechts". Berlin’s public libraries brought their book bus “Henri” vor visitors to browse and young and old got creative together in the music makerspace.

arte's real-time documentary 24h Europe was screened at the Netzfest. If you couldn't be there, you can still watch 24h Europe online here.

One of the highlights of the Netzfest certainly were the live concerts. Moritz Krämer sang at sunset on the first day of the event with surprise guest Francesco Wilking ("Die höchste Eisenbahn"). You can watch part of the performance here
The bands Children and Sultans Court rounded the musical program. Wonderful singer/songwriter Cäthe gave the closing performance on Netzfest Sunday.

At the Netzfest, net experts meet net discoverers, speakers and visitors get into conversation. Above all, net-proofing oneself means to exchange ideas, decrease barriers and overcome fear –  in a community and across generations: in the Tincon tent, teen experts explained blockchain and presented apps against bullying and GRIPS Theater started its #alleKinder campaign.
