The eight-date jaunt will feature Seth Troxler, Azari & III, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tiga, Nic Fanciulli, Gesaffelstein and Die Antwoord.
Sonar has announced plans for an eight-date tour of North America, starting in Chicago on Halloween.
Though firmly rooted in Barcelona, where their main festival happens every summer, Sonar has long been a global operation, with offshoot events in Japan, Brazil and South Africa. That said, this will be their first time embarking on a full-blown tour. Most of their events offset the upbeat with the avant-garde, but their North American stint will mostly emphasize the clubby side of Sonar's palette.
Appearing at all of the dates are Seth Troxler, Paul Kalkbrenner and Saved Records boss Nic Fanciulli. Azari & III are confirmed as well, along with South African rap outfit Die Antwoord. Tiga will play the entire tour except for the final two in Oakland and LA, and French producer Gesaffelstein will drop in for three events in Denver, Toronto and Chicago.
