One Night in Istanbul: Disko No Disko x Mitte Karakoy

music Nov 24, 2019

November 2019

Disko No Disko Goes International!

What is Disko No Disko? We are a DJ crew from Berlin – covering styles from wedding/prom music to melodic techno and everything in between. 💃

We organize parties and donate the proceeds to charities (e.g. Lilipad; Maasai Duka).

DND at Mitte Karakoy

We received an offer we could not refuse: playing a gig in Istanbul.

Same concept: music for charity.

Below a couple of impressions from our gig in Turkey. 🇹🇷🤘💃


First thing in Istanbul: one of our crew forgot his passport in the cab.

It was Saturday, we had 3 hours until opening the night, and our return flight was the next morning. No chance of getting a replacement passport since the consulates are closed on weekends.

Calls, sweat, and tears.

After an hour of uncertainty the cab driver called and said he found the passport and could stop by in 30 minutes. 🎉

We celebrated in style and ordered the cheapest cold beer money could buy. 🍺

Getting Ready

Showtime: Mitte Karakoy

Mitte Karakoy has featured artists such as Be Svendsen, Oliver Huntemann, Bob Moses to name a few... no pressure. 😶

Badass picture of the evening.

Radical performance.
