Barry Murphy from Hermitage Green “King John’s Castle is one of the most iconic venues in the country and we are so excited to be back. We’ve had some of the most incredible nights of our lives on that stage and it’s hard to believe it’s been 4 years since we’ve played there. We cannot wait to get back to King John’s Castle, to our hometown crowd and have another special night”

THE legendary German electronic pioneers bring together music and performance art for this spectacular show in the glorious surrounds of King John’s Castle on Wednesday June 28, 2023.
Kraftwerk concerts are a true “Gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art.”
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.
Speaking at today’s announcement Mick Dolan said: “an incredible act to book I fully expect this to be one of our best shows ever, Kraftwerk are the ‘godfathers‘of electronic music and their live shows are well renowned throughout the world”
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.
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.
Kraftwerk play Live At King John’s Castle on Wednesday June 28.
