The venue's co-founder Timur Basha and booker Karine are also locked in for sets.
The parties, held in conjunction with Vera and Alexandra's new Melliflow label, will take place at Hoppetosse and Club der Visionaere. The Hoppetosse leg is up first on the evening of Saturday the 13th, after which things will move to the nearby Club der Visionaere for an extended day-into-night bash that runs until Monday morning.
A crew of DJs linked to Closer and Melliflow will play. There will be slots from Rhadoo, Nicolas Lutz, Francesco Del Garda, Max Vaahs and Yone-Ko, plus Melliflow founders Vera and Alexandra. Closer residents Timur Basha, Shakolin, Bambu, Vova Klk and Karine are also due to make the trip west to Berlin. It's not the first time the Closer crew has played in the city—they hosted a party at Club der Visionaere with Eli Verveine last year.
The news follows a Kiev court's recent decision to throw out charges threatening to force Closer to cease operations. More on that here.
