Underworld are coming to Germany for two shows in March 2024. A true one-of-a-kind act, they are at home at the world's biggest festivals and events, playing underground techno clubs and warehouses, providing background music for theater productions or taking over art galleries, disused shoe stores and Japanese department stores.
Having cemented their place in the underground techno scene of the 1990s, the group made their final breakthrough in 1996 when their timeless anthem "Born Slippy (Nuxx)" became the soundtrack of an entire generation after being featured in the film Trainspotting. The success of this single catapulted the band from the underground into the heart of the mainstream.
In the following two decades, they were able to build on this success without compromising: They sold millions of albums, played countless sold-out shows, provided the music for productions by Academy Award-winning directors Anthony Minghella and Danny Boyle, exhibited in galleries, and provided the soundtrack for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. The critical and commercial success of the 2016 Grammy-nominated album "Barbara Barbara, we face a shining future" brought the band to the stages of Coachella, Glastonbury and Summer Sonic as headliners. On November 1, 2018, Underworld launched their DRIFT series, releasing new material every week for a year.This content has been machine translated.
