    Critical reception

    “Strolling the festival venue one might sense the attitude of mind Krautrock still stands for: no bouncers, no stupid marketing games, no bungee jumping. The calm atmosphere at the Klangbad Festival almost could be seen as something political. Here everything seems possible.� (Andi Schoon, Die ZEIT)
