Sonar was established as an annual festival in Barcelona in June 1994. Its founding principle was to blend artistry with entertainment, celebrate the avant-garde and experimentation, and to explore the boundaries of electronic music and its cultural iterations. 2012 Sonar headliners included Fatboy Slim, Deadmau5, Hot Chip, Luciano, The Roots, James Murphy, Richie Hawtin, Lana Del Rey, Nicolas Jaar, Laurent Garnier and many more.
Sonar On Tour will present artists challenging and expanding what dance music can be. Eschewing bubble-gum EDM, the artists joining Sonar On Tour are uncompromising in their vision for what people can dance to. They are innovators capable of creating some of the dancefloor’s most sublime and transcendent moments.
