Kraftwerk banned from Beijing performanceElectronic music pioneers Kraftwerk have been banned from performing at Modern Sky’s Strawberry Music Festival in Beijing. Officials made the decsion based on Kraftwerk’s choice to play in a pro-Tibet rally in Washington D.C. in 1998 – a performance that, due to inclement weather, Kraftwerk was unable to fulfill. The Beijing government is widely known for its stance against Tibetan autonomy.
Kraftwerk will be performing in Hong Kong in May, at the new venue On the Peak. Kraftwerk is one of many high profile bands scheduled to visit the new venue, including Blur and Smashing Pumpkins.
