Following the huge news that Cocoon will be treating its global fanbase to a very special anniversary party at Ushuaïa Ibiza on May 25th – two days before the techno fiesta’s official season opener – Sven Väth and his team have dropped the killer announcement that Kraftwerk will join them for a second musical milestone at the famous outdoor clubbing arena on September 13th. Firm favourites of Väth himself, not only will it be the visionary act’s first visit to the White Isle, they will also bring with them a ground-breaking3D multimedia performance.

Started in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider, Kraftwerk is widely regarded as one of the most innovative and inspiring projects in the world, combining music with performance art on the cutting edge of technology. Dubbed ‘The Beatles of electronic dance music’ by the New York Times in 1997, their influences can be found across genres including Detroit Techno, Hip-Hop, Synth Pop and Electro Funk as well as inspiring music icons such as David Bowie, Blondie and Depeche Mode to name just a few.

Papa Sven, his Cocoon crew and collaborators The Night League – the people behind Ushuaïa Ibiza – described themselves as ‘humbled’ to have secured this incredible musical scoop, with the Cocoon team explaining, “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.” Add to that the spectacular production power and sound of Ushuaïa Ibiza, and you have to redefine the term ‘mind-blowing’. On September 13th, for the educated electronic music lover there will be no other place to be on the White Isle – perhaps even in the world! Make sure you secure your tickets fast, or regret it forever.
