Fast fashion and Cashmere? Here’s the real deal

Fast fashion and Cashmere? Here’s the real deal

When you buy a cashmere sweater for a fraction of the cost of a designer one, you may believe that you're getting a great bargain. But what you may not realize is that the lower-priced sweater is likely made of a much cheaper fabric, or much worse, from abused animals...

best hipster cafe in potsdam

If you happen to find yourself in Potsdam, Berlin's little and rather refined sister town, and you fancy some relaxed hipster vibes, Italian accents and good coffee (and pastries), you can't do better than drop into 11-Line on the corner of Hermann-Elflein-Strasse and...

manifesto

who we are. what we think. why you should join us.

“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like your job, quit. If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream and share your passion.”

– The Holstee Manifesto.

Until we finish our own, this one works pretty well as a placeholder 🙂

 

A Message From the Editor

“Together with my partner Mia Morris I started indieBerlin in 2008 as a blog covering independent culture in and of Berlin. By 2019 we’d become a blog network, booking & events company and PR agency – focused mainly on music.

Towards the end of 2019 my partner left to focus on new adventures. Fast forward to 2020 and I realised I wanted to change some things.

I love the independent music and culture scene in Berlin but I’m also excited by fashion, innovation, indie tech, alternative living models, indie travel and more.

At the same time I realised I wanted to look beyond Berlin; while indieRepbublik is meant to remove our geographical limitations, so that we can focus on the amazing things going on all across the globe, still of course we’re (presently) based in Germany; so we’d also like to shine a light on stuff happening in places like Leipzig, Hamburg, Munich and the Ruhrgebiet.

As we extend beyond indie music/film/fashion to look at sustainable living and life choices, roads less travelled, unusual people doing unusual things – while still celebrating the best independent culture from all over; and as we focus our events section across Germany (and hopefully soon even further afield), I dearly hope that you’ll stay with us as we embark on the next leg of our journey. And I’d like to thank our reader who have stayed with us this far – and of course all the amazing reviewers and other team members who have been with us over the years, and who have made indieBerlin/indieRepublik what it is today.

UPDATE 1.8.22

 

Since 2008 indieBerlin – and since 2019 indieRepublik – has been a blog / online magazine, featuring the best and newest in indie music, art, film, books and events.

But you know, it’s time to move on.

Are we still going to blog?

Sure. It’s in our blood 🙂

But the focus of indieRepublik is no longer going to be our blog.

We want to refocus our energy onto the other stuff we’ve been spending more time on lately: offering services for the indie community.

We’re focusing more on our new NFT store; we’re spending more time on our indie shop; and we’ve just launched our indieAcademy, offering courses and workshops to creatives.

 

We’ll also have more time and energy to put into our marketing services.

As well as running campaigns on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, we’ve recently been experiencing great success on behalf of our favourite artists with promoting music videos on youtube.

And added to that, we’ve recently been running our first campaigns on Tiktok, the upstart that has turned behemoth – and discovered that the platform is designed for creatives – musicians, peformers, artists – like no other. 

If you’re interested, then please: sign up to our regular newsletter; drop by here; and if you’re interested in chatting about what we can do for you, then drop us a line here.

As ever, I’d like to thank you for staying with us on our journey; for being part of the indie community; and for keeping those independent artist fires burning brightly.
