As previously announced, London’s Roundhouse plays host to the A Taste of Sónar on March 19.
The grand dome will be shaken by a raft of international talent led by LA beat-maker and insatiable crowd-hyper The Gaslamp Killer. Kuduro standard-bearers and peerless party-starters Buraka Som Sistema will play live, with Spain’s Noaipre lending support.
The second stage is curated by longtime Sónar collaborators Red Bull Music Academy. They draw on local talent in the shape of garage innovator turned house supremo MJ Cole, BBC Radio 1 and Deviation man Benji B, one of the most subtly devastating selectors in the land right now, and Rinse FM stalwart and FACT favourite Braiden, who’s still reeling from the success of his ‘The Alps’ 12″ on Joy Orbison’s Doldrums label. The Londoners are joined by Norway’s Axel Boman, a leading light in DJ Koze’s Pampa stable, and acclaimed disco duo Tiger & Woods playing back-to-back.
Tickets are £22.50 from the Roundhouse here. We’ve also got six tickets to give away completely free of charge; if you’d like to be entered into a draw to win a pair, simply e-mail your name and the words ‘a taste of sonar london’ to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be notified on or before March 16.
