LinuxNacht: The LinuxTag Social Event, May 24, 2012

From dawn till dusk: LinuxTag and LinuxNacht

Sorry about the untranslatable pun: the German "Tag" in "LinuxTag" means both "conference, colloquium" and "day". And it must follow, as the night the day, that the glamorous social highlight of each year's LinuxTag is LinuxNacht!

Great food, relaxed music, comfortable lounges and refreshing cocktails are the main ingredients that make LinuxNacht the perfect place to chill and party. Special guest this year: DigiEnsemble Berlin - Music with Smartphones. More information to come!

We look forward to seeing you on the 24th of May in Berlin!

You will pass by an large open square called Herrmannplatz and continue left into the "Kottbusser Damm". Take the fourth road to the right into the "Brücknerstraße". Please find the Umspannwerk immediately behind the bridge "Hobrechtbrücke". In doubt just stop and ask local passengers, most people will assist you with instructions.
