COCOON UNVEILS A RETURN TO USHUAÏA IBIZA WITH KRAFTWERK 3D MULTIMEDIA PERFORMANCE
An event that’s got all the ingredients to be outstanding, Sven Väth brings his favourite giants Kraftwerk to Ushuaïa with their 3D multimedia peformance for their first ever visit to Ibiza.
Sven Väth’s COCOON present their most volcanic announcement to date, unveiling his favourite giants Kraftwerk will make their debut Ibiza performance at the island’s iconic open-air venue, continuing to celebrate 20 years of COCOON.
COCOON20 Not long now. Excitement and anticipation. The Platinum anniversary. One of our biggest ever announcements.
Even after 20 years this is volcanic. For the man who started all this it is a dream come true. Sven Väth presents his favourite giants.
Kraftwerk. A 3D multimedia performance for their first ever visit to Ibiza.
Inspiring, audacious, inscrutable innovators. Electro pioneers and visionaries. Influential is not a big enough word. Detroit techno to hip hop. Bowie to Bjork to Blondie and beyond. Their fingerprints are simply everywhere.
After their worldwide hugely successful 3-D concert tours, the Electro pioneers Kraftwerk remain of the most sought-after acts in today’s electronic music landscape. Bringing together music and performance art, Kraftwerk 3-D concerts are a true “Gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art.”
To complete the line up for this gigantic Ibiza occasion, Ushuaïa Ibiza and COCOON announce that the talismanic adventurer Seth Troxler will also perform.
In what is a huge coup for COCOON and Ushuaïa Ibiza, electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk will perform one of their immersive 3D shows, where their legendary, groundbreaking music is paired with spectacular visuals and 3D glasses for the audience. It will be the very first time they play in Ibiza.
Kraftwerk’s influence cannot be overstated, with everyone from Daft Punk to David Bowie, Madonna and Coldplay having inspired by or having sampled their work, and tracks of theirs like ‘Trans-Europe Express’ providing some of the foundational building blocks for the birth of hip-hop.
Väth can be seen as one of the successors of Kraftwerk’s legacy in placing German electronic music on the map, helping do what they did for electro and synth music for techno. It’s a perfect fit, and makes for the kind of night Ibiza has never seen before.
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.
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. In their live performances, Kraftwerk – Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, Falk Grieffenhagen – illustrate their belief in the respective contributions of both man and machine.
Sven Väth, the founder of COCOON, and The Night League, the team behind Ushuaïa Ibiza, and are humbled to host Kraftwerk’s first ever Ibiza performance. The rich history and incredible influence of all parties involved makes for a fascinating partnership that will undoubtedly lead to a momentous occasion on September 13th at Ushuaïa Ibiza.
