Barcelona’s biggest electronic music festival adds more talent to its 2016 edition.

Sónar has added 36 artists to this year’s Barcelona festival, with Kaytranada, Santigold and Yung Lean among the names.

Richie Hawtin will also return to the festival to debut his new show, with PC Music’s Danny L. Harle, Gazelle Twin, Stormzy, A-Trak, classical pianist James Rhodes and Lady Leshurr also appearing.

Other highlights include the appearance of the Hot Shotz collaborative project from Diagonal founder Powell and pointillistic trance producer Lorenzo Senni, and cult Ghanaian singer Ata Kak, who brings a taste of African hiplife to the festival.

Sónar has also bolstered its line-up of club talent for 2016: Kerri Chandler, Ben Klock, DJ EZ, Ape Escape composer Soichi Terada and Bicep will all appear alongside Ben UFO and Helena Hauff, who perform a joint set.

The new names join the previously announced Jean-Michel Jarre, James Blake, ANOHNI, Kelela and more at the festival, where this year visitors will be able to arrive at the Sónar by Night venue courtesy of a new extension to the Barcelona Metro.

Sónar 2016 takes place in Barcelona from June 16-18. Full details and tickets can be found at the Sónar website.
