Red Bull Music Academy's SonarDôme programme, meanwhile, has posted additions including SOPHIE, DJ Stingray & Mumdance, and Suzanne Kraft & Jonny Nash. The SonarDôme will also host a show by Dominick Fernow, Silent Servant and Philippe Hallais (Low Jack) performing as Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement.
Resident Advisor previously announced plans to host a SonarLab stage featuring Ben Klock & DJ Nobu, Errorsmith, Fatima Al Qadiri and JASSS, among others.
Sónar's 25-year anniversary activities in Barcelona also include sending music broadcasts into outer space. That endeavor, Sónar Calling GJ273b, is open to public submissions, with three tracks joining pieces of music by the likes of Autechre, Carsten Nicolai, Nina Kraviz to "travel through space to an unknown audience."
