Sónar by Day will also present several shows with a high level of artistic content: the innovative technological and audiovisual show from North American producer Nosaj Thing together with Japanese technologist Daito Manabe, (who will also star at one Sónar+D’s main conferences); the live premiere of the new album by Spain's exceptional experimentalists LCC; the immersive show by Amnesia Scanner; Tri Angle's Forest Swords presenting his long awaited new album at SonarHall; and an highly visual show from the charismatic emerging artist GAIKA, a much lauded name on London's underground scene.
The latest trends in hip hop, trap and bass music will have a strong presence throughout the festival, with performances from the UK urban scene's latest sensations - Stööki Sound and BBC Sound of 2017 nominee Nadia Rose; Los Angeles' collective Soulection; the explosive and controversial MC Tommy Cash, currently causing a great stir with his videos, as well as Spanish trap from rising stars Kinder Malo Up & Pimp Flaco.
For the 13th year in a row, Red Bull Music Academy will present the emerging artists and producers shaping the next generation of music at the SonarDôme stage at Sónar by Day. After last year's success, the SonarLab stage will again be hosted on Saturday by Resident Advisor, the world's most influential electronic music platform.
