Lufthaus are an exciting, new three-piece group fusing the pulse of electronica with the art and structure of classic song-writing.
The group was formed in response to the very specific energy of the city of Berlin, but their creative juxtaposition of dance music with more ambient influences brings a true universality to their sound.
Their debut single Sway was released on Feb 11, followed by To The Light in April.
Lufthaus can be seen live for the first time supporting Robbie at his homecoming show at Vale Park on June 4.
Next single, Soul Seekers is released through Armada Music on July 1.
Motorists and visitors to Burslem are reminded that a number of streets will be closed and have restricted access around the Port Vale ground on Saturday (4 June) for the Robbie Williams gig.
Hamil Road, from the junction of High Lane to Jenkins Street, and Bycars Road will be closed to through traffic, and there will be no access from Hamil Road to Market Place (North).
A number of residential streets off Hamil Road and surrounding the ground will operate residents-only access, and staff from Event Support Team, the company managing the arrangements for the gig, will be on site to support local residents in accessing their properties.
The streets with residents-only access are:
Concert-goers will be able to access taxi-drop off and pick-up points in Burslem Park after the gig, between 9.30-11pm. Taxis from Lucky Seven and City Centre cabs will access the park from Moorland Road and exit onto Park Road, and the taxi route will be marshalled for pedestrian safety.
Around 20,000 fans are expected to attend the concert on Saturday. Motorists are urged to allow extra time for their journeys and to plan on using alternative routes if they are not attending the gig.
Event Support Team (EST) have been contracted to oversee the traffic management plan for the event. There are a number of ways to contact them:

Anyone with queries about this should contact EST: email@example.com or call 02476 997605
All roads near the stadium will be residents’ parking only (a letter has been sent to all affected residents and businesses). The roads will be staffed by Event Support Team. Signage will be erected informing the public of this and the roads will be staffed from 2pm to 11pm. Please be assured that access for residents will be allowed at all times and our sole purpose is to deter concert attendees from parking on the local street network. To achieve this each ‘soft road closure’ will be staffed by a trained operative and, on approach, you will be asked if you are a resident, (we do advise you to carry some proof of address if you can for this short period so the marshals don’t unnecessarily delay you. Concert attendees will be refused access to stop them parking on your road.
Road Closure – Hamil Road and the junctions of Jenkins Street and High Lane will be closed after the event from 9.30pm to 11pm approximately to assist with pedestrian safety. Pedestrian and emergency vehicle access will always be maintained during the road closure. Hamil Road should be avoided by vehicles during these times (if possible), and alternative routes used (a signed diversion route will also be in place whilst this road closure is live).
How you can help – Could we please ask that you to only receive essential deliveries, food orders and visitors on Saturday 4th June to keep disruption to a minimum?
