Artists confirmed so far include The Cinematic Orchestra, Mount Kimbie, Warp Records artist Clark and Tokyo-based artist Masaaki Yoshida, AKA Anchorsong. More than 30 local and international artists will be booked in total.
Sonar São Paulo will happen a month later at Parque Anhembi, a massive convention center that's home to the city's annual Carnival. The initial lineup already features a number of big name acts, such as as Björk, Justice, James Blake and Little Dragon. More esoteric artists are confirmed as well, from Four Tet and Modeselektor to Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto. As with SonarSound, a collection of local artists will perform as well.
