The sound of Düs­sel­dorf


Everything back to NEU! In the city with the Kunstakademie

Take the Auto­bahn to get to Düs­sel­dorf. Kraft­werk?s Auto­bahn. There is no faster way to dive deep in­to Düs­sel­dorf?s 70s and 80s than Techno, New Wave and Punk. Which turned the city in­to one sweaty, bizarre, mag­ni­fi­cient con­cert. NEU! ? the fa­vor­ite band and in­spir­a­tion for le­gends such as Blur, Ra­di­o­head and Dav­id Bowie, res­ul­ted from Kraft­werk, one of the bright­est stars in the Ger­man mu­sic­al sky. The Krupps and die Toten Hosen came to­geth­er here as well: The hearts of the punk fans beat faster even today when the name Düs­sel­dorf is men­tioned. The main­stay oft he scenes ist he Kunstakademie. The ?Salon des Am­a­teurs? goes back to the former stu­dent and Kreidler mem­ber De­tlef Wein­rich, whose second name is furore.
