Kraftwerk announce huge 2019 UK festival show as Bluedot headliners

The Cheshire festival will welcome the German pioneers in July

Kraftwerk have been announced as the first headliners of Bluedot 2019.

The music, science and cultural festival – which will be staged for a fourth time next year – will once again be hosted in the grounds of Cheshire’s Jodrell Bank Observatory, with the festival taking place from July 18-21, 2019.

Bluedot have this morning (November 21) confirmed Kraftwerk as the first headliners for their 2019 festival, with the electronic music pioneers set to top the bill on Saturday July 20 when they’ll play the main Lovell Stage.

Kraftwerk will provide a special 3-D live performance for the show, which will mark their first-ever UK headline festival appearance and will see the group bring their ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ (translated as “a total work of art”) style of live performance to Bluedot for what’s sure to be a memorable set.

More acts for Bluedot 2019 will be announced in January. Weekend and day tickets for the 2019 festival go on sale on Friday (November 23) at 10am from here.

Previous years at Bluedot have seen live performances from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Pixies, The Flaming Lips and Underworld.

Kraftwerk are among the acts who have been nominated for entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019. The German group have been listed among the likes of Radiohead, The Cure and Todd Rundgren, and a public vote to determine the inductees is still open.
