The international festival from Spain called 'Sonar' will be taking their musical concept on the road to North America starting on October 31st. What is Sonar exactly?
Sónar is the International Festival of Advanced Music and Mew Media Art created in 1994, which is held in Barcelona for three days every June.
...At all its events, Sónar sounds out the current landscape of electronic music and its interactions and hybridization with other artistic disciplines, bringing together established artists and the emerging talent that renews and innovates in all areas of musical and audiovisual creation....
They have previously taken their festival on the road to Tokyo, Cape Town, and Sao Paulo but this upcoming tour is more ambitious as they will travel to 8 stops in North America including Toronto, and Montreal. The lineup phenomenal as it includes Die Antwoord, Azari & III, Seth Troxler, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tiga, Gesaffelstein and Nic Fanciulli. Here's the promo video:
I'm really impressed with the video, top notch. I've always wanted to see to see Die Antwoord play live so to get to see them as well as the opportunity to watch some major EDM talent such as Seth Troxler, Nic Fanciulli, and Gesaffelstein is almost too good to be true. I have a strong feeling that both of these Canadian dates will sell out - tickets go on sale September 14th.
