We are happy to invite you once again to our beautiful location at the Kiekebusch See in Berlin.
This year, we are glad to settle even closer from the delightful Kiekebusch lake. Dancing on the beach with the feet in water, walking in the enchanted forest, everything is possible in the Kiekebusch See, the place we chose for you !
Since last year, you all know our big ship on the “Second Horizon Beach”, and this year, you can expect something evenbigger! Everything is made from natural materials, one with the nature, and the crew is busy to create an unforgettable moment for all the pirates !
The forest is bathed in colored lights, the eyes discover new things at every moment, the memories are engraved in our hearts.
The lake becomes a sea of colors, and if you look at it, it can realize your wishes and your thoughts 🙂
All our thoughts are sweetened with great lighting, breathtaking buildings, good food and great acts from all over the world.
Welcome to a place where the soul can be free, where you can share, dance and laugh together … Be together quite simply.
Captain Victorius Fox and his crew are eager to see you, celebrate with you the second edition of the Second Horizon Festival and hope to see you on the beach!
