Also on the bill for Yellosphere on 24 November are Can founder Jaki Liebezeit and Ricardo Donoso

Thursday 24 November will see Swiss electronic music originators Dieter Meier and Boris Blank, better known as Yello, taking over Ministry of Sound to host Yellosphere, which is being billed as "a one-night festival that showcases five decades of electronic sound."

Sadly, the Zurich veterans won't be playing live. Instead, Blank will spin tracks from their latest album Toy, while Dieter Meier will discuss the duo's career. More music will come from Detroit techno legend Carl Craig, Optimo's JD Twitch, Jaki Liebezeit (drummer and co-founder of Krautrock legends Can) and "one-man orchestra" Ricardo Donoso.

Announcing this very special event, Boris Blank said: "Yellosphere is ideas from all across the electronic world. Music made with machines, not by them. We've invited musicians who reflect this evolving constellation."

The event runs from 8pm-4am and tickets are available now, starting at £15.
