🎸☀️ FOMO Berlin - the week of Open-Air concerts : July 9 - July 15

Weekly newsletter keeping you up to date on the coolest events for tech & culture in Berlin

Hey Berliners ☀️

Today is going to be quite hot 🔥, so let's embrace the summer warmth and make the most of it. If you're looking to cool off, Bernstein Lake is supposed to be a fantastic spot.

A heartfelt thank you 🖤 to everyone who attended and supported our FOMO Berlin | First Thursday CPT x Berlin Edition (Fashion Week) event. It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces; it truly felt like a mini Cape Town reunion.

My reason for the late newsletter today is the launch of our first paid partnership post on Instagram 👉 FOMO Berlin x The League
