Kraftwerk To Play Tate Modern
Luke Turner , December 5th, 2012 16:03


Following on from Laibach's incredible Retro Monumental Avant-Garde performance in the Tate Modern Turbine Hall earlier this year, we are thrilled and excited to announce that Kraftwerk are to play the venue between February 4th and 16th 2013. The band will be performing an album every night as part of the KRAFTWERK - THE CATALOGUE 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 series, previously seen in New York and Dusseldorf.

Chris Dercon, director of the Tate Modern, said: "As a former power station, Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall is an ideal venue for Kraftwerk’s explorations of technology, energy and rhythm. Bringing together music, video and performance, these events will be true gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art."
