Sonar Announces First Acts For Barcelona 2015

Art & Culture

Sónar has announced the first wave of acts set to perform at the 2015 Barcelona festival. The first major headliners have been revealed as The Chemical Brothers, with the duos Tom Rowlands having the following to say –

“We're very excited to return to Sónar, one of the best crowds, in one of the greatest cities. We are still imagining the gig, both music and visual. We are working on the staging of the live gig at the moment. Adam (Smith) has some amazing ideas. The show will be an intense ride, hold tight. (About the new album) I guess the most important feature of the album is that it connects with us emotionally in some way. We hope for finding a new way to make you feel. We dream of new sounds and different frames. We have worked with some guest singers but mostly the album is pure Chemical Brothers.”

The Chemical Brothers, will be joined by artists including Autechre, Lee Gamble, Evian Christ, Kiasmos, Kindness, Fat Freddy's Drop, Tourist, Daniel Avery, Ten Walls, Sophie, PXXR GVNG, Holly Herndon, Kate Tempest, Vessel, Niño, Mans O and Helena Hauff – check the short video teaser below.

The festival takes place on June 18th – 20th. More info and tickets over on their website
