With great pride, festival organisers can finally announce that KRAFTWERK will be bringing their 3D show to Lokerse Feesten, on Friday 12th August 2022. The band’s influence is legendary, across an entire range of music genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop. Bringing together music and performance art, Kraftwerk 3D concerts are a true “Gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art.”
The multi-media project KRAFTWERK was started in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. They set up their electronic Kling Klang Studio in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they conceived and produced all Kraftwerk albums. By the mid 1970’s KRAFTWERK had achieved international recognition for their revolutionary electronic ‚sound scapes’ and their musical experimentation with robotics and other technical innovations. With their visions of the future, KRAFTWERK created the soundtrack for the digital age of the 21st century.
Their compositions, using innovative techniques, synthetic voices and computerised rhythms, have had a major international influence across an entire range of music genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop.
In their live performances, KRAFTWERK – Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, Falk Grieffenhagen – illustrate their belief in the respective contributions of both man and machine. Starting with the retrospective of their Catalogue at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2012, in recent years KRAFTWERK have returned full circle back to their origins within the Düsseldorf art scene of the late Sixties.
