This week we are getting a little appetizer of Fashion Week with multiple events by the ESMOS design school. Also, you’ll see writers in a death match, you can celebrate the Midsommar (or the Fête de la Musique), have a look at the New Order exhibition or go into a war with your cardboard sword. Our events recommendations after the jump.

Germany against Greece, a game of epic proportions. Where will you watch it? Maybe at the Studio B hosted by Mono.Kultur, at Spandauer Str. 2, or around the corner at HBC, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 2, or maybe in Kreuzberg at Backyard, Gitschiner Str. 22, or maybe at Merkezi at Kotti, Adalbertstr. 5/6. Or maybe at the Indian place around the corner…
