All genres are represented and the party keeps on going day and night. Do not count on getting any sleep if you're in Barcelona. Flying Lotus, Skrillex, The Chemical Brothers', Autechre, Kiasmos, Kindness, Fat Freddy's Drop, Tourist, Sophie, Daniel Avery, Róisín Murphy, Laurent Garnier, Jamie xx, Maya Jane Coles, Siriusmodeselktor, Die Antwoord, Duran Duran, Salva, and DJ Fresh are just a selection of the big names appearing. Get your experimental electronica fix from Mika Vainio, Powell, The Bug, Randomer and the showcase from the 20th anniversary of Mego label, featuring Voices From the Lake, Russell Haswell, LCC, Klara Lewis and KTL. New trap and bass music will be brought to us by Cashmere Cat, Redinho and Yung Lean & Sad Boys. Other notable sets include the 4-deck J.E.T.S. project from the iconic Jimmy Edgar and Machinedrum, Lorenzo Senni's deconstruction of 90s rave music, and Finnish friends Jimi Tenor and Jori Hulkkonen's live performance of the Nuntius soundtrack. Skepta and JME head up the bill for the SónarDôme stage, curated by Red Bull Music Academy, with Floating Points, Palms Trax, Guillamino and Jami Bassols, Valesuchi, Larry Gus, LAO, and NV also dropping in. And if that wasn't enough, as part of the Sónar+D program, the festival also presents the Nyloïd installation, a huge mechanical spider with 6m long legs moving to pulses of sound.
