After an enthralling reveal that Sónar Festival would be sending music into space in an attempt to contact aliens for its 25th anniversary, the festival has come down to Earth and announced the first round of names for 2018.
The Barcelona festival will take place from June 14–16, and so far is lead by live performances from Diplo, Richie Hawtin with CLOSE, the Grammy-nominated Bonobo, Bicep, Hyperdub boss Kode9, LCD Soundsystem, and Damon Albarn‘s Gorillaz.
Sónar kicks off with several editions this year including its Bogotá installment on December 2, its Reykjavik leg on March 16 and 17, its second edition in Hong Kong on March 17, and an Istanbul jaunt on April 6 and 7.
Sónar Pass is priced at $195 until December 11, and the four-day Delegate Pass is priced at $284.
