BRN Festival 16. to 18. June 2017

The Bunte Republik Neustadt, short BRN (which is the biggest event for most of the Dresdeners of the year in town. It is also the biggest neighbour festival in the country) exists already since 1990.

Short after the reunion of West and East Germany, the atmosphere was split: most of the young people were afraid of the new capitalistic system, they were unoriented. And so some guys came to the idea to organise a new republic, an area, which they bordered with white colour on the streets: the „Äussere Neustadt quarter“ with an autonomic character. They established a new currency: the BRN Mark (which you can still buy as souvenir at the „Geldschneider“ on „Alaunstrasse 29“ … Jäkel, the owner is one of 20 existing coin-cutters in whole of Germany) and they elected a monarch and ministers as well.

Since then it is tradition to celebrate the foundation of the BRN every year with a big festival: self made food, rave- balconies, stages with a lot of different bands, samba drum sessions, DJ´s and partys on the streets, readings, theatre,… all made by locals and their children.

The festival became quite capitalistic and touristy over the last years, so if you decide to visit us and our beautiful neighbourhood, you should really watch out for the smaller streets, avoid the big beer stands and buy food and drinks at the (better) local stands and please: chill, enjoy and respect the locals and our neighbourhood!

„Paul van der Braach“, everybody knows everybody in the Neustadt: „Hello Paul!!“ 😀
