Kraftwerk in Athens for 50th Aniversary | July 16

Electronica pioneers Kraftwerk will celebrate a half-century of music this summer with a massive, 50th anniversary tour.

Radical electronica pioneers Kraftwerk promise an audiovisual extravaganza at one of the world’s most iconic ancient theatres, the Herod Atticus at the Acropolis.

Over their 50-year career, Kraftwerk has released ten studio albums, the most recent being 2003’s Tour de France Soundtracks.

In 2014 they received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Dusseldorf-based outfit, which helped popularize the innovative genre after breaking out in the 1970s, has made inroads ever since. The Athens show is part of the band’s 50th-anniversary tour and is brought by the Athens and Epidaurus Festival. Detail and tickets are available at aefestival.gr.
