Sónar Barcelona 2015 adds 17 new artists to its line-up, including several big names from the international scene, while also expanding the scope of artists appearing at the SonarDôme stage presented by Red Bull Music Academy.

Taking place from 18th – 20th June, Sónar by Day will host the 4-deck J.E.T.S. project from the iconic Jimmy Edgar and Machinedrum. The two distinguished producers join together under the J.E.T.S. alias to create awe-inspiring syncopated rhythms. Also Skepta heads the new list of artists performing on SonarDôme stage at Sónar by Day, curated by Red Bull Music Academy. The English MC –joined by his accomplice JME– is one of the key figures of grime, the London urban genre that has been experiencing an exciting ascendance in recent months. Also there will be the performance by Floating Points, Finnish friends Jimi Tenor & Jori Hulkkonen will play the “Nuntius” soundtrack live, the silent science fiction film  that they directed which will, of course, be screened during the performance.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
