Kraftwerk // 2nd Manchester International Festival

July 16, 2009

Kraftwerk perform at MIF, Manchester

The 2nd Manchester International Festival opened with a unique performances by American minimalist composer Steve Reich and German electro-pop pioneers Kraftwerk. The opening was held at the city’s Velodrome, Britain’s indoor cycle-racing track.

The cycle track loops are such a perfect complement to both Reich’s and Kraftwerk’s musical style. Members of the British Olympic team cycled around the Velodrome as Kraftwerk played Tour de France. Brilliant!
