Kraftwerk to bring 3D show to Roskilde Festival

The German band is the first of two announcements expected from the festival organisers this week

Kraftwerk is set to come out of the woodwork and play their first concert in 15 years at Roskilde Festival’s Orange Stage this summer.

The genre-defining electronic pop legends will perform their return to Roskilde in style by treating audience members to a special 3D performance. Fans keen to experience Kraftwerk’s futuristic take on electronica will receive free 3D glasses from Roskilde Festival in order to get the most out of the visually enthralling gig.

The addition of Kraftwerk follows last week's announcement that American rapper Kendrick Lamar is booked to perform at Roskilde as well. The Compton hip-hop star has received high critical acclaim for his debut album Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City and recently performed a sold-out show at Vega.

The two announcements have received plenty of positive reaction on Roskilde’s Facebook page, a change the festival is likely happy with, given the earlier criticism that Roskilde was bringing back too many acts that had already played at the festival.

Roskilde announced on Twitter yesterday that two major announcements are set to made this week. Tickets for the 2013 Roskilde Festival are on sale now and are offered at a 100 kroner discount if purchased before March 1.
