Berlin Festival is back! Tickets go on sale today for the 8th edition of Berlin Festival, which takes place on 6th and 7th September 2013 at Tempelhof Airport and Arena Berlin.

Blur are confirmed to play one of their few European gigs and their only Germany show in 2013 at Berlin Festival. The band will take to the stage at Berlin Festival nine years after the band?s last performance in Germany. Blur became world famous in the 90s with records including Parklife and The Great Escape and had a triumphant returned to the stage earlier this year for a sold out show in London's Hyde Park to mark the closing of the Olympic Games. With anthems such as 'Girls & Boys', 'Country House' and 'Song 2' and new work like 'The Puritan' and 'Under The Westway', the band are sure to light up the stage at Tempelhof Airport.

Pet Shop Boys are also set to make their Berlin Festival debut in 2013. The duo, comprised of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, are known the world over for hits like 'It's A Sin' and 'West End Girls' and are renowned for their incredible live performances. Having recently celebrated the world premiere of their eleventh studio album, Elysium, in Berlin, the Pet Shop Boys will be back in the German capital city with a special live performance of their album for Tempelhof crowds.
After Turbostaat's Berlin Festival performance in 2010, the punk rockers, who skilfully manage the balancing act between deep lyrics and mosh pit attitude, are back with a new album which sees its release in April 2013. The band will play its first Berlin gig with new material at Berlin Festival.

With a vast selection of gigs and DJ sets on the airfield, in the airport's hangars 4 and 5 as well as Arena Berlin, techno fans will definitely get their money's worth in 2013. Club THF will also make its debut in Hangar 2 in 2013, featuring the music genres Berlin is famous for - techno, house and electro. All DJs will be announced soon.

Any ticket buyers, who purchase their tickets via eventim.de from 14th to 21st December, will be entered into a draw to win one of three First Class Tickets worth EUR 300 each. The winner plus one of his or her friends will be granted access to Berlin Festival, Club Xberg, Club THF as well as the VIP areas at Tempelhof Airport and Arena Berlin including catering (food & beverages).
