FOMO Berlin: April 3 - April 9

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

Hi Berliners 👋

Easter is here, and we’re spring ready with the best events and happenings of this upcoming week ☀️ With easter around the corner, that means a normal open weekend but public holidays Sunday and Monday. That doesn't mean that YOU have to stay at home, that means good food, hopefully, sunny weather, and of course, friends & family ❤️

Why FOMO Berlin?

For my weekend activities, I enjoy visiting the site Mit Vergnügen to discover cultural events, happening on the weekend. I always felt a bit frustrated 😤 that there was nothing similar to this for tech events and builders like us 🧑‍💻 

So whenever I discovered a cool event, I shared it with my friends to provide us with a great opportunity to meet in person.

With FOMO Berlin, I simply aim to solve my own problem 😎 and make it just a bit easier to share all cool events with my friends 🤓

What did you FOMO last week?

I guess we were the only ones that didn’t know about the Africa Food Festival @Sage Beach. The line was insane, but it was definitely worth it 😍

So without further ado, this is what we can look forward to this week (3/4-9/4):
