The first wave of Sonar 2009 artists were announced on XLR8R.com at the end of February, and names like Animal Collective and Fever Ray have made their way onto the roster over the last several weeks.
Now just two months away, Sonar 2009 welcomes another round of artists to the bill this morning, Carl Craig, Jeff Mills, James Murphy, and Pat Mahoney among them. Particularly noteworthy is the fact that this year's festival is the first time Sonar will see a contingency from the Middle East, in the form of Syrian-born producer Omar Souleyman. BBC Radio 1 host Mary Anne Hobbs will host a showcase, and on the off chance you’ll have little ones in tow, the festival now boasts Sonar Kids
Sonar 2009 takes place June 18, 19, and 20, in various locations around Barcelona. Get thee a festival pass.
