The Spanish festival's satellite events for late 2014 and early 2015 are taking shape.
The Spanish festival's tentacles reach far beyond its Barcelona HQ—it also hosts events across Europe, Asia and Africa, with new events planned in Bogotá and Santiago de Chile in 2015.
Sónar Cape Town 2014 will take place on December 15th and 16th at The Good Hope Centre. UK synth-pop outfit Pet Shop Boys have been added to a bill that also includes Jon Hopkins, Ten Walls, Uner, 2ManyDJs, The Bloody Beetroots and Uz, with organisers promising to announce more local artists in the coming weeks. On December 12th there will be an event called A Taste Of Sónar in Johannesburg—this scaled-down event at Nasrec Expo Centre will feature Pet Shop Boys, 2ManyDJs and The Bloody Beetroots.
The bill for Sónar Stockholm 2015 is coming together, too. Taking place across three stages at Stockholm Waterfront on February 13th and 14th next year, it shares some acts with Sónar Reykjavík—most notably Paul Kalkbrenner and Nina Kraviz—with Kindness, Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Nisennenmondai, Zhala and SHXCXCHCXSH also billed.
