The festival session kick-starts with the Sónar festival. Good2b gives away three tickets for Friday night and three tickets for Saturday night. We’re working on our popular road map for you to enjoy the best of the festival. Before that moment comes, here are the festival’s highlights, a perfect aperitif.
As it’s been usual over the past few years, the festival travels around the world to provide us with a world map of today’s electronic music, from techno abstraction of bass music, from contemporary minimalism to new rap? Loyal to its founding principles, the lineup mixes talented young musicians such as DJ James Blake, Nicolas Jaar, Maya Jane Coles, Jacques Greene, Julio Bashmore, Thundercat, Cooly G, The Suicide Of Western Culture, Uner o Blawan, and bands including The Roots, Modeselektor, Hot Chip, James Blake dj, Fatboy Slim, Richie Hawtin, Amon Tobin, Azari & III, Jacques Lu Cont, Friendly Fires, Metronomy, Hyperdub, Brainfeeder and 100% Silk. A special mention for Russian DJ Nina Kraviz and Lana del Rey, who represents the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age filtered through contemporary pop music and digital culture.
This year’s edition SonarCinema presents a heterogenic programme as far as themes and formats go, highlighting the aesthetic quality of its proposals and its interesting contents: musical films devoted to the legendary band A Tribe Called Quest and the project Congotronics Vs Rockers; documents that capture the magic of live shows (Amon Tobin, The Chemical Brothers and Chilly Gonzales), and adventurous and avant-garde experimental pieces (8 Switches, River Rites, Arcana). A delicious and highly nutritious menu for demanding palates.
