DUBLAB and the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles and proud open the Ford Amphitheatre 2012
Summer Season with “Krautrock Classics,” an evening dedicated to the music genre that has
developed a cult following over the years. Los Angeles-based artists will perform live songs
from the music genre known as Krautrock that took place in Germany throughout the 70s and
part of the 80s. The genre has influenced modern music around the world. From techno, to
dance and pop music, you can hear the direct influence that bands such as Kraftwerk,
Tangerine Dream, and Can, among many others, has had on these genres, sometimes even
fully creating these musical styles.
