The city of Barcelona is getting ready for this year’s Sonar edition. Sónar Barcelona sums 17 other acts to its programming: the festive and bustling part of big shows such as Pretty Lights, Flux Pavilion, Rudimental or Yelle, producers and legendary DJs as DJ Harvey, Tiga and The Martinez Brothers, the explorer and experimental vocation of Ben Frost, and emerging figures that redefine the electronic scene as Machinedrum, Laurel Halo, Recondite, UZ, Visionist, Alizzz or Dj Nigga Fox, not forgetting the influential artists from New York label L.I.E.S.
This incorporation of new names enriches and expands the stylistic spectrum of the announced offer: Massive Attack, Richie Hawtin, Plastikman, Caribou, Woodkid, Bonobo, Four Tet, Moderat, Jon Hopkins, I Am Legion, Gesaffelstein, James Holden, Oneohtrix Point Never, Matmos, Evian Christ, Happa, Jessy Lanza, Nisennenmondai and Downliners Sekt, among many others.
For those who still have doubts about whether or not to attend the date, we are going to highlight two of the most important names of the last confirmed artists: Tiga and The Martinez Brothers. Tiga is one of the most important electronic figures in Canada and in charge this year to close the festival on Saturday night. Soulful house from the Big Apple to the Sónar Barcelona 2014, The Martinez Brothers, with their seasons in Ibiza, long sets at Panorama Bar in Berlin, important events in New York (Mad Styles & Crazy Beats), collaborations with Soul Clap and Seth Troxler and tours around the world, the Brothers have become the new ambassadors of the New York house. The sets of Chris and Steve Martinez are characterized by an enormous energy and ability to fascinate the public.
