Kraftwerk create visual spectacle at Coachella

German electro pioneers draw a star-studded crowd

Kraftwerk gave Coachella-goers an audio-visual spectacle at the California desert festival tonight (April 26) during their early evening set on the main stage.

The German electro pioneers performed several classic tracks including ‘Man Machine’, ‘Autobahn’ and ‘Trans Europe Express’ underneath three massive screens that displayed video sequences tailor-made for each song.

In typical Kraftwerk fashion, the four men stood behind their laptops programming beats without saying a word during their entire set.

The band, who also played Coachella in 2004, drew a star-studded crowd including Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler and actor David Hasselhoff, who watched from the VIP area.
