In June is time for the Sonar Festival with the Sónar by Day (CCCB, MACBA) from Thursday 18th to Saturday 20th June, and the Sónar by Night (Fira Gran Via M2) Friday 19th & Saturday 20th June 2009.
Two of the main attractions already announced are Grace Jones and Orbital.
Grace Jones, the Jamaican-born artist, muse of the 1980s, singer, model, actress and an icon of modernity far beyond mere music, returns, after almost twenty years of recording silence with an excellent new album, "Hurricane," produced by well renowned names including Sly & Robbie, Tricky and Brian Eno. The diva is back with her individual style bang up to date, with a mixture of electronic, pop, Jamaican and ground-breaking funk, and her continuous and stunning changes of costume and supported with a very solid band on stage.
Orbital is one of the most important groups in electronic dance music in the ‘90s and return to the international stage in 2009 with a tour that will give a fresh airing to all the major hits of their career. This will be an extraordinary opportunity to celebrate 20 years of cinematic techno anthems and symphonies. The Hartnoll brothers created dozens of legendary anthems between 1989 and 2004 and for their show at the 16th edition of Sónar, they will bring new audiovisuals to give a dash of colour to a sessionpacked with all their greatest hits.
More artists on the Sónar 2009 will be announced in the near future.
All Sónar 2009 tickets are available and on sale - the 3 Day Ticket and also both Sónar by Day and Sónar by Night tickets.
