Kraftwerk has been denied a permit for their Buenos Aires show after lawmakers have prohibited electronic music festivals due to the death of five eventgoers died at Time Warp. 

The law states that the ban will go towards events that utilize “synthesizers or samplers as their primary instrument,” though some electronic music events, such as Sónar Buenos Aires, are being allowed to continue. The Kraftwerk show was planned to be an alcohol-free, public event. 

The promoters have stated that they will try to relocate the show elsewhere within the province, outside Buenos Aires. 70 percent of tickets have already reportedly been sold.
