Sónar Festival in Barcelona added 17 new artists to its line-up, including several big names from the international scene, while also expanding the scope of artists appearing at the SonarDôme stage presented by Red Bull Music Academy. These new performances join the previously announced Flying Lotus, Róisín Murphy, Jamie xx, Arca, Jesse Kanda, Hot Chip, Autechre, Siriusmodeselektor, Kindness, Laurent Garnier and more than 150 shows at Sónar 2015. Shaping up to be a pretty good lineup if we do say so ourselves!
As for the Red Bull Stage, they’re adding some essential elements as well. Skepta heads the new list of artists performing on SonarDôme stage at Sónar by Day, curated by Red Bull Music Academy. The English MC –joined by his accomplice JME– is one of the key figures of grime, the London urban genre that has been experiencing an exciting ascendance in recent months. Also extremely noteworthy will be the performance by Floating Points, an exquisite producer and dj responsible for the label Eglo Records, revitalising the most elegant and organic house by way of lucid jazz and funk notations.
