Sonar, Barcelona’s international festival of advanced music and new media art, today announced Sonar On Tour, a eight city tour of North America; it will be the first time Sonar has undertaken a full tour anywhere in the world. When Newestra got word that they were stopping by our beloved “West Coast” we just had to share this goodness with you!!!
Sonar On Tour will be led by some of the most cutting edge artists in electronic music, blending live performance and DJ sets. Joining Sonar On Tour will be Die Antwoord, Azari & III, Seth Troxler, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tiga, Gesaffelstein ** and Nic Fanciulli.
Sonar was established as an annual festival in Barcelona in June 1994. Its founding principle was to blend artistry with entertainment, celebrate the avant-garde and experimentation, and to explore the boundaries of electronic music and its cultural iterations. 2012 Sonar headliners included Fatboy Slim, Deadmau5, Hot Chip, Luciano, The Roots, James Murphy, Richie Hawtin, Lana Del Rey, Nicolas Jaar, Laurent Garnier and many more.
Sonar On Tour will present artists challenging and expanding what dance music can be. Eschewing bubble-gum EDM, the artists joining Sonar On Tour are uncompromising in their vision for what people can dance to. They are innovators capable of creating some of the dancefloor’s most sublime and transcendent moments.
