Berlin, Tesla, and Rave, that’s all you need to know about what happened on Thursday, October 14, 2021. When you hear Elon Musk and the word crazy together, it is nothing new. At this point, he’s one of the most famous and coolest people in the world.
Elon Musk, our favourite eccentric billionaire and co-founder of Tesla and SpaceX, recently threw a huge celebration to celebrate the opening of the Tesla Gigafactory in Berlin.
With live music from techno DJs, dance performances, and a large stage design for the performances, the event had a festival feel to it.
Among the headliners was Boris Brejcha, and there were also arcades, Ferris wheels, vegetarian food trucks, and more.
On top of the music and the stage, there were giant inflatable robots dancing in the crowd. There were also some real Tesla coils that were spitting out small bolts of lightning.
Elon, the man at the centre of all this, announced that Tesla cars would be available for purchase soon in their new location.
Here are some tweets from attendees of the rave:

As the first European office, the Berlin location marks the company’s official entry into the European market. Approximately 8,000 employees are expected to work at the $7 billion complex. Attendees of the rave also had the opportunity to tour the factory itself, which is expected to begin production by November.
