Sónar+D is the international conference for creativity and technology, which aims to act as a catalyst for interaction between the two. In it's third year, the 2015 program will focus on the role of the creators in the context of technological innovation, as well as the rise of digital platforms as key tools in the generation and distribution of content. The conference is divided into four areas—Exhibition, Congress, Networking, and Live Performance—with an exhibition space, an auditorium for conferences and workshops, plus zones for product demonstration, hands-on interaction, and networking.
Already confirmed for this years event are Kickstarter, Vimeo, Pinterest, littleBits, and Arduino, as well as a master class by Indy Saha on Google Creative Lab, the Google ideas incubator. Sónar+D will also take over Sónar stages and spaces, showcasing 14 shows that are relevant for their dialogue between music, audiovisual creation and technological aspirations. Some of the acts already named include Arca & Jesse Kanda, Flying Lotus, Evian Christ, Holly Herndon, Nyloïd by Cod.Act, Squarepusher or The Chemical Brothers.
