GIG NEWS: Cabaret Voltaire announce first UK performance in over 20 years at The Devil’s Arse Cave in Castleton, Derbyshire Saturday 29 April

Billed as a performance consisting solely of machines, multi-screen projections and Richard H. Kirk, Cabaret Voltaire will perform entirely new material for a performance relevant to the 21st Century with no nostalgia.


The Devil’s Arse has been host to a handful of performances in recent years, its entranceway serves as a natural amphitheatre and, as part of one of the largest cave systems in the Peak District, it will be a unique host to the return of Cabaret Voltaire to the UK.

Cabaret Voltaire performed the first shows since the 90s in 2014. Recently speaking to FACT, Richard H. Kirk explained “It’s totally new, I don’t play anything from the past. I always make it really clear that if you think you’re going to come and hear the greatest hits then don’t come because you’re not. What you might get is the same spirit.”

Mute recently released the box sets Richard H. Kirk #7489 (Collected Works 1974 – 1989)and Sandoz #9294 (Collected Works 1992 – 1994) in 2016 and Richard H. Kirk is getting ready to release a solo album on his own label.
