Throw yourself into the hypnotic world of electronic music and discover its global impact from underground movements to the mainstream.

Music is only part of the story. Evoking the experience of a being in a club, the exhibition will transport you through the people, art, design, technology and photography that have been capturing and shaping the electronic music landscape.

Travel to dance floors from Detroit to Chicago, Paris, Berlin and the UK’s thriving scene. Enter a 3-D Kraftwerk experience, lose yourself in mesmerising installations and discover the stories behind the instruments that made it all possible.

Featuring the likes of Detroit techno legend Jeff Mills, Ellen Allien, Jean-Michel Jarre, the seminal BBC Radiophonic Workshop, large scale images of rave culture by Andreas Gursky, iconic DJ masks and fashion, a genre-spanning soundtrack by French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier, graphics from Peter Saville, history-making labels and club nights.
