Skrillex, Flying Lotus, FKA Twigs, Die Antwoord, Dubfire:live & More For Sonar Barcelona

Sónar Barcelona 2015 extends the line-up of its 22nd edition to include 38 new names, featuring key artists of contemporary electronica to add to those announced some weeks ago.

The festival will present one of the brightest talents of today’s music, British FKA twigs, the South African duo Die Antwoord also break new ground, with their incredible collection of hits, a new show featuring extreme visual imagery and their usual powerful stage presence.

Flying Lotus, a genius who weaves hip hop and cosmic jazz, will present “You’re Dead” with an extraordinary 3D show, whilst Venezuelan Arca, the undisputed producer of the moment (he’s behind the recent work of Björk, Kanye West and FKA twigs) will unveil his exclusive and much awaited audiovisual show in collaboration with video artist Jess Kanda.

Two other world-renowned names make it into the list: Skrillex, probably the most charismatic and popular artist in international electronica today, and Jamie xx, one of the subtlest House stylists in the world.

Of course, two other giants of electronic music history have already been confirmed: The Chemical Brothers (premiering an album and a show) and Autechre, living legends of abstract beats and godfathers of IDM.
