"That's just silly." That's the verdict of Warp Record legends Autechre upon being crowned the "Godfathers of IDM". That's Intelligent Dance Music to you and me, by the way (and one of the most intriguing and creative sub-genres of electronic music to spawn since the early 90s). What's not so silly is that we get to see this cracking act live at the Acropolis this summer. The pioneering British duo has been booked by the Athens Epidaurus Festival in collaboration with Plisskën Festival for a show at the monumental Odeon of Herodes Atticus. If we had to name an electronic headliner for this absolutely, crazy summer festival season in Athens, it would be this. Tickets are already on sale, so make haste.
