In the event that Berlin Brandenburg Airport ever opens, Berlin Tegel – the city’s main international airport whose history goes back to the 1948 Berlin Airlift – may become a music venue once it is decommissioned.

Berlin Brandenburg was scheduled to open in 2012 but multiple issues, from a faulty fire-protection system to escalators that were too short to allegations of corruption, have prevented the opening from taking place.

It is now provisionally slated to open in 2020.

The city’s culture minister, Klaus Lederer, and Lutz Leichsenring of the city’s Clubcommission, a non-profit dedicated to the preservation, development, and future of the city’s club scene, toured the airport with this in mind.

A spokesman for Lederer told reporters that Tegel will become “a figurehead” for the city’s modernity and diversity.

Tegel would have a mix of temporary and permanent music venues that could host open-air festivals, clubs, and studios.

Other possible uses for Tegel include being converted into a research and industrial park for urban technologies to be known as Berlin TXL – The Urban Tech Republic.
