Court Approves Kraftwerk Buenos Aires 3-D Show


Buenos Aires fans of electronic music legends Kraftwerk were beside themselves last week when it was announced that an upcoming 3-D show was cancelled as a result of a city-wide ban on electronic music events that “use synthesizers or samplers as their primary instrument.”

Mayor Horacio Rodriguez Larreta brought the edict into effect after six drug-related deaths at the Argentinian edition of Time Warp earlier held in April.

Not willing to take the cancelation lying down, the show’s promoters, Move Concerts, successfully demonstrated to a local court the group’s historical importance in the canon of popular music and that the show was a concert, not a party. The show will take place as scheduled on November 23.
