YAAM! featured in a short documentary

YAAM! from KaliShakti on Vimeo.

Yaam! is one of Berlin’s most unique venue.  It operates as standing festival, complete with market, play area, beach, basketball court and stages.  Most of it is open air  so of course it sees more events in the summer when the outdoor space can be used as well.

The video above is a short documentary about Yaam’s presence in Berlin and their guiding philosophy, their commitment to supporting reggae, hip-hop and art.
