New Sónar Tour date: Sónar North American Tour 2012

After Barcelona, Sao Paolo, Tokyo and Cape Town, the new Sónar North American Tour is a travelling event around some of the most iconic music venues in the US and Canada.

Sonar North American Tour is a travelling event taking place on one night and in a single space, in venues with a capacity of between 2,000 and 4,000 spectators. On this tour, Sónar adapts the spirit and personality of the festivals it organizes in various countries, combining live shows with dj sessions and audiovisual creation.

Between 31 October and 10 November, 2012, Sónar North American Tour will touch down in Chicago, Toronto, New York, Montreal, Boston, Denver, Oakland and Los Angeles.

The tour will feature performances by Africans Die Antwoord, bringing back by popular demand after their successful US tour this summer; the Canadian quartet Azari & III, undisputed regenerators of house; the American techno and house producer, dj and remixer Seth Troxler; Germany’s Paul Kalkbrenner, who will bring his live show for the first time to North America and also present his new yet untitled album 2012; the Canadian dj and producer Tiga; one of the heavyweights of the new French electronic school, Gesaffelstein; and the British dj and producer Nic Fanciulli.

We remember one of the protagonists of this Tour with one of his most representative themes.

True to the essence of the Sónar brand and its benchmark festival in Barcelona, the line-up of this tour contains artists from several countries (South Africa, Canada, Germany, France, Britain and the US), with outstandingly diverse musical approaches, with electronic dance music providing the backbone for the occasion.
