‘Sónar North American Tour’

'Sonar North American Tour' is a travelling event taking place on one night and in a single space, in venues with a capacity of between 2,000 and 4,000 spectators. Sónar adapts the spirit and personality of the festivals it organizes in various countries to a concert hall, combining live shows with dj sessions and audiovisual creation.

The artist

True to the essence of the Sónar brand and its benchmark festival in Barcelona, the line-up of this tour contains artists from several countries (South Africa, Canada, Germany, France, Britain and the US). and outstandingly diverse musical approaches, with electronic dance music providing the backbone for the occasion.

On the road with the 'Sonar North American Tour' will be the South Africans Die Antwoord, who Sónar are bringing back by popular demand after their successful US tour this summer. As they did at the last two editions of Sónar Barcelona, Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Ninja and DJ Hi- Tek, will shake the foundations of hip-hop and the rave spirit, presenting tracks from their two extraordinary albums live: $o$ (2010) and  TEN$ION (2012).

'Sonar North American Tour' is also pleased to confirm the Canadian quartet Azari & III, the undisputed regenerators of house; the American techno and house producer, dj and remixer Seth Troxler, a man at the zenith of his career; Germany's Paul Kalkbrenner, who will bring his live show for the first time to North America and also present his new yet untitled album 2012; the Canadian dj and producer Tiga*; one of the heavyweights of the new French electronic school, Gesaffelstein**, and the British dj and producer Nic Fanciulli.
