Berlin’s Berghain is notorious for its strict door policy (we’ve covered that a lot, along with just about every other nightlife media).
Equally prolific are tips and trends that may actually be able to get you into the techno mecca. From advice from Sven himself, to cheeky cartoons depicted some other strategies. Now, though, a new virtual program takes the process to its most personal with Berghain Trainer.
The idea is pretty simple, a POV camera walks up to the club, through its snaking queue where you meet “Sven” (not the real one), who asks you 3 questions. Apparently there are right and wrong answers (I keep getting 1 right, hence a consistent denial…guess I’m not cool enough). Also, your computer’s camera and microphone analyze your facial expressions and voice, quantifying your levels of anger, sadness, amazed, and euphoria. Obviously, the metrics here shouldn’t be taken too seriously, but its a fun little game none the less.
