Several accessible toilets will be available in the venue.
At HYTE we try to create a safe space for our ravers. We do not tolerate any kind of discrimination such as sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or racism. If you feel harassed or molested at any point do not hesitate to contact the security who has been briefed on these matters.

Let’s have loads of fun all together at HYTE NYE Berlin 2021!
After nearly two years of rave abstinence, HYTE finally returns on with a bang into the scene. The Berlin-based underground events crew prepares for its first-ever Cologne rave weekender on December 10th and 11th 2021. Techno sensation Charlotte De Witte and Berlin’s most notorious Kobosil are headlining each one event at Stahlwerk, the most iconic club that Cologne has to offer. The New Age of rave has begun.
