Next Week in Munich – Viehhof, Kill it Kid & Switchfoot

It’s June already! The Viehhof beer garden opens this week, as does the Kino, Mond & Sterne open-air cinema at Westpark – it’s starting to feel like summer.

Kill it Kid start the week at the Ampere, and tickets cost 20 € on the door. You may know them best for the use of their music in Samsung’s 2013 Smart TV ad, though they’ve continued to be pretty successful since.

San Diego alt-rock band Switchfoot are playing at the Technikum on Tuesday, promoting their ninth studio album Fading West. Tickets to see the Grammy award winning band cost 25 € on the door.

Kino, Mond & Sterne starts on Wednesday, with Bavarian film Winterkartoffelknödel. The open-air cinema will be showing a mix of English and German language films, but the English-language films have all been dubbed. The full program’s available online here, and tickets cost 6 € per person.

And if mainstream music’s your thing, you’ll have to decide between Olly Murs and Jessie J on Wednesday. Murs is playing at the Olympiahalle from 8pm, and Jessie J is at the Kesselhaus.

On Thursday, head down to the Viehhof from 4pm (it’s a public holiday, no excuses!) to celebrate its opening.

Also on Thursday, the Feierwerk is hosting an poverty awareness festival. Entrance is free, and there are lots of Munich bands and DJs playing. More here.

There’s a brand new exhibition on in the Farbenladen from Friday onwards – the vernissage starts at 6pm. The exhibition is titled Beziehungsweise and features photographs on the subject of love, sex and friendship from eight different artists.

O’Neill are hosting a surf and skate party at Strom on Saturday, as part of Munich’s Surf & Skate Festival (June 4-7).
