    Berlin is perhaps the most exciting city in Germany because it is cool, tolerant and dynamic. The city oozes with energy that fuels its creativity and multi-cultural identity. In Berlin, you can be whoever you want to be and as long as you are obeying the laws, no one cares what you do or what you look like. This unique feeling of freedom is exhilirating and reflects the care-free attitude of the Berliners and the ambiente of street life in the city. The very first Streetlive Festival Berlin was held this month at the Columbia Club, a former US Air Force facility, to showcase and promote Berlin's street life under one roof. The two-day event attracted young and old alike who enjoyed watching or participating in graffiti spray painting or taking part in rigorous break dance competition. Many preferred getting exotic piercings and tattoos, performing tricks on skateboard ramps, or just chilling to the awesome sounds of Berlin hip-hop bands and rappers during the numerous concerts on stage. Stands offering chic and hip street-style fashions for the die-hard fashionistas were abundant as well as mobile trucks offering typical Berlin street foods.
