Founded in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, Kraftwerk started out giving spontaneous concerts as an experimental group in Düsseldorf. The group found fame during an international tour a few years later, when their cyclic beats, robotic lyrics and captivating melodies caught the attention of critics and music lovers alike. Since then, Kraftwerk have developed a cult following for their innovative sound and ideas. Their concerts aren’t just about the music; they’re also about striking visual effects that evoke a technological world. Today the group consists of Ralf Hütter, Fritz Hilpert, Henning Schmitz and Falk Grieffenhagen, and last year they were honoured with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for their work, which pioneered electronic music and has left a lasting impact across many other genres.
