After their successful worldwide tour, legendary German electronic band, Kraftwerk, will head to Sydney with an innovative show featuring electronic music and computer animations.

The band’s compositions use contemporary techniques, computerised rhythms, and synthetic voices to form their unique sound. Kraftwerk have also had an international influence across multiple music genres such as electro, hip hop, synth pop, and techno.

The founder of Kraftwerk, Ralf Hutter, and the rest of the team acknowledge their uses of both man and machine in their performances. These exciting and inventive practices are what audiences can expect to see at the Sydney showcase.

The last time Kraftwerk toured in Australia was in 2013 when they performed live at Vivid. At that concert, they performed a range of tunes from their hit albums, including Autobahn (1974), The Man Machine (1978), Computer World (1981), and their most recent album Tour de France (2003). Since their last album, Kraftwerkhave released various remixes and live recordings of their songs from worldwide tours. Audiences can expect to see new renditions of Kraftwerk favourites at the 2023 show.

Kraftwerk was established as a multimedia project in 1970 by Ralf Hutter and the late Florian Schneider. Soon after, the two set up their studio in Dusseldorf, Germany, where they began the production of all Kraftwerkalbums. Now, the band has made a name for themselves by transforming ordinary sounds into techno masterpieces.
