Isn’t it a treat that FFF coincides with the opening day of a Sydney festival?  Of course, we here at the Zu didn’t plan that, but it just so happens that Vivid Festival kicks off today – one of our favourite on the Sydney festival calendar, Vivid lights up our city like never before and creates an atmosphere of creativity and fun, transforming iconic buildings and spaces to canvases for light, most notably the Sydney Opera House. Branded as a festival of light, music and ideas – 2013 certainly doesn’t seem to disappoint.  Coming along for the ride is the impossibly popular international travelling retrospective performance works of Kraftwerk.  Whoa.  Kraftwerk, inspiration to the likes of David Bowie, Daft Punk, Kanye West, R.E.M, LCD Soundsystem and Joy Division are coming?  Oh yes, it’s true.
“A concept eight years in-the-making since their initial invitation from the Venice Biennale, Kraftwerk have collected three decades of their most innovative music into an audiovisual exhibition that has redefined traditional concert motifs.
If you didn’t manage to get tickets, don’t worry, we understand there are tickets available to their subsequent shows in Barcelona?  Ouch. Vivid Festival runs 24 May to 10 June.
