Lovers of a good Scandinavian vibe and sweet electro beats. The spanish all-time classic Sonár festival which is an annual extravaganza held in Barcelona has for the past few years broadened its reach into the more northern parts of Europe. In February and March Sonár stops in Reykjavik, Stockholm and Copenhagen to celebrate creative developments in both music and technology.
Next week, February 13-14th, Stockholm is hosting Sonár for the second time - and just scroll through the line-up and you will see that they mean business: SBTRKT, Jamie xx, Kindness, Zhala, Ryan Hemsworth and so much more. All nicely scheduled over the course of two days in Stockholm's Waterfront Congress Center. If you were ever looking for an excuse to travel to Stockholm - this is it.
A fine grape in the line-up is Swedish ensemble DNKL. Beautiful dark electro beats with almost psychedelic vocals. Attached is Hunt off their latest EP Wolfhour. Tickets for Sonár run at a healthy 122 euros for both days - available here.
