Five people died in Argentina at Time Warp festival earlier this year and since then, the city has banned electronic music festivals - and any other concerts using "synthesizers or samplers" altogether. Because of that, a Kraftwerk concert has now been denied a permit from the city and people are not happy about it at all.
The show's promoters Move Concerts, are arguing that the alcohol-free, public event shouldn't be considered a festival, especially since they already sold 70% of tickets after receiving the go-ahead to put them on sale in July. They are currently looking to move the show outside the city.
"You can't persecute and sanction an entire musical genre just because of one negligent entrepreneur," Federico Arancibia, a founder of the Asociación Civil de Música Electrónica, said. "Cancel Kraftwerk because of what happened at Time Warp? No one told them that the only pill that Kraftwerk fans take in 2016 is Ibuprofen."
