Sonar Festival to commence eight city debut tour of North America

Sonar, Barcelona’s international festival of advanced music and new media art, recently 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.

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.
