Sónar by Night
By Aimee Lawrence
As day shifts to night, our focus at Sónar is drawn to starry formations as over a dozen artists are grouped into constellations, each one offering a distinct sonic cosmos.
Night one puts forward the Gorillaz, Thom Yorke, Bonobo, LCD Soundsystem, Diplo and Richie Hawtin, while night two includes Tokimonsta, Wiley, Fatima Al Qadiri, Alizzz and DJ2D2. Formidable duos are set to take to the booth with a series of b2b sessions. Those include Motor City Drum Ensemble and Jeremy Underground, Ben Klock and DJ Nobu, and Kim Ann Foxman alongside Miss Kittin. Listen out for 6-hour sets from DJ Harvey and John Talabot, a Sónar debut from Charlotte de Witte and a live set from Bicep.
And don’t miss the groundbreaking Ryuichi Sakamoto, who will once again join Alva Noto for the closing concert of Sónar 2018 on Sunday, June 17th at the stunning Teatre Grec outdoor amphitheater.
