On Stage in picture: Kraftwerk. Only Kraftwerk. None other than Kraftwerk!
With milestones like Autobahn, Radio-Activity and The Man-Machine, Kraftwerk have forever written themselves into the stylized encyclopedia of all things worth knowing about the world. By assembling musical creations using circuits, oscillators and filters, they moved forward the boundaries of both instrument construction as well as how electronic music could sound. Yet, it has not been about pioneering solely for the sake of pioneering; Kraftwerk have always managed to produce timeless melodies, and this is undoubtedly why they have conquered the world. We all know ”The Model.” We all know ”Showroom Dummies.” We all know ”The Robots.” More need not be said.
Way Out West is held in the heart of GÃ¶teborg, Sweden on the second weekend of August. The three-day festival is a must for all music-loving, culturally oriented young minds.
