1. Berlin: Wintergarten Varieté — Woodstock Variety Festival
A tradition in Europe, varieté shows, much like American variety shows, combine fanciful dance, songs, and comedy to create a thrilling result. Over the course of the roughly 3-hour performance, be amazed by elaborate costumes, talented performers, and the songs of the 1960s that defined a generation. The legendary Woodstock Festival of 1969 remains one of the most significant subcultural happenings of the 20th century. On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the Wintergarten Berlin presents a show with the sound of love, peace, and happiness — with hippies galore. Internationally famed artists create their own choreographies to the songs of Santana, Janis Joplin, or Joe Cocker. Festival hits by Melanie, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who become acrobatic imagery to dazzle the eyes.
