Within the realms of music festivals for more experimental and avant-garde music, Sonar festival really stands alone in its scope, size, and history. The festival originally from Barcelona has over its 25 years spread events across 5 continents in more than 20 cities, while the Barcelona location remains in many ways the definitive edition. nss recently sat down to chat with one of the main people behind the festival, Georgia Taglietti and we’ve since been patiently waiting to release the first names of this year's festival. That time has come and we can now reveal the first names of this years line up and let us just say it is rather serious.
