Velodrom is located at Landsberger Allee in direct proximity to the S-train station with the same name in the district Prenzlauer Berg and is one of the biggest event halls in Berlin. In the same time the 1997-opened building that offers space for around 12.000 spectators is used as a cycling track.
It is known as the „mecca of bicycle racing“ in Berlin as besides various concerts the Berlin six-day-race „Six Days Berlin“ is taking place there.
For concerts with up to 5.000 spectators the upper tiers are covered with black fabric and the venue is then called „UFO“.
A lot of national and international artists and bands played concerts at Velodrom, among them Britney Spears, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue, Daft Punk, Gwen Stefani, The Cure, the Beastie Boys, Scooter and Florence + The Machine.
Besides the regular events the hall also offers guided tours for visitors.
