WESTCOAST
STORY­TELLING

Programme | 19 – 20 July 2024

Because it was so nice: let’s travel to the West Coast for summer and our favourite hours together. 1 stop on the S1/S2 or 20 minutes by bike from the city, culture and cold drinks will once again find us here on seven weekends. Exciting cultural imports from all over the world will once again dock where industrial goods were once loaded and shipped on their way around the globe – and combine to form a wonderful programme of concerts and cinema, readings and clubs, family and action. The programme will focus on the topics that move our work-love balance: storytelling, AI and leisure. On the first weekend, we will understand the stories and how we want to tell them: We look forward to seeing you and our summer fairytale in the west of this city. To the summer! At the WESTCOAST!

Girl You Know It’s True | OPEN AIR CINEMA

Girl You Know It’s True: Milli Vanilli is still captivating, fascinating and extremely moving in the summer of 2024. Director Simon Verhoeven achieves something with this film that you wouldn’t necessarily expect. He doesn’t just depict the story of the rise and fall of the greatest fake pop duo of all time, but captures energy, doubt, ecstasy and attraction in the most intense way. You might have thought you basically knew the story of Milli Vanilli. Far from it! Here comes our bittersweet open-air cinema opener with a story so incredible that it absolutely must be retold and relived. Including pop songs for eternity!
