- Words: Glenn Jackson
Sónar has added another round of acts to its upcoming three-day festival in Barcelona and has also announced a handful of new additions to the roster for April's SónarSound in Japan. Among the notable new additions are veteran UK producer Skream (pictured above) as well as showcases from the Amsterdam-based Rush Hour label, who will feature San Proper and Antal, and Modeselektor's 50Weapons imprint, which will bring Benjamin Damage, Bambounou, and Phon.O to the Spanish festival this June. Hometown label Classicworks will also present a showcase at the infamous SónarCar stage featuring label heads Cardopusher and Nehuen. For the Japanese edition of Sónar, prolific producer and Tectonic label boss Pinch has been added to an already impressive list of artists that includes Actress, Nicolas Jaar, John Talabot, and others. The full line-up for the Barcelona festival—which will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this year—can be found here, while the full SónarSound Japanese festival line-up can be seen here.
