Sonar, Barcelona’s international festival of music and art, announced their North American Sonar On Tour today. Since the festival’s inception in 1994, electronic music fans have gathered in Spain to see the most forward-thinking artists in the world. As the press release states, the festival is known for “eschewing bubble-gum EDM” in favor of what’s cutting-edge.
The eight-city tour is a worldwide first for Sonar and will feature live performances and DJ sets from across the electronic music spectrum. Joining the tour will be Die Antwoord, Azari & III, Seth Troxler, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tiga, Gesaffelstein, and Nic Fanciulli. With such excellent variety and focus on visionaries of the dance floor, this tour will be a can’t-miss.
