Extraordinary, that is definitely a good way to describe the Tempelhof Field on the former Tempelhof airport as a location, a location that is steeped in Berlin’s history. Where Raisin Bombers; or Candy Bombers as they are better known to Americans, once landed packed with essential food and goods for Berlin, this year played host to the Lollapalooza Festival, for the very first time in Europe.
The very first edition of the nomadic festival took place in 1991 in the USA, and apart from a few ups & downs, a Lollapalooza festival has taken place in various cities every year since then. Over 60 years ago Raisin Bomber pilots threw chewing gum from the hatches of their planes in order to give some joy to the people of Berlin, and now bands like the Beatsteaks, Deichkind, Muse, Seeed and Co. play awesome concerts in front of 45,000 music fans.
