De La Soul
Fat Freddy's Drop
The Black Madonna
Sónar by Night will feature the new show from French duo Justice, presenting their newly released album “Woman” in a strikingly visual, onstage spectacular. DJ and producer Nicolas Jaar will return to Sónar this time headlining SonarPub to present his excellent new work “Sirens” in a new live format. Moderat are back with a powerful audiovisual show, consolidating the German trio as the most acclaimed projects in contemporary electronica, and Sweden's Eric Prydz, a bonafide star in dance music, and one of the worlds most sought after DJ's will perform at SonarClub.
Legendary hip hop group De La Soul will present their first album in ten years, live at Sónar; New Zealand's Fat Freddy's Drop will return to Sónar with a double helping - Friday at SonarVillage and on Saturday at SonarPub - mixing dub, funk and soul and a lick of uplifting house. The festival will also feature two of the world's leading DJ's: Nina Kraviz, one of the leading artists in electronic music, returning to Sonar for the 3rd time, and renowned for her idiosyncratic musical taste both in her performances and on her label трип; and The Black Madonna, the politically engaged American house and disco DJ who will this year perform at Sónar by Night, following her success at last year’s Sónar by Day.
Three other names of note, each with their own unmistakable sound are: Clams Casino, with one of his rare futuristic hip-hop sets; the young Norwegian producer, coveted for his production skills by pops stars around the world Cashmere Cat will present his new album; we'll also be treated to an immaculate selection by the vastly experienced British dj Damian Lazarus.
