Sizing Up Sonar

Text by Len Iima (HigherFrequency)

This year's Sonar line up has been announced. Along with the Beastie Boys, who will be playing an instrumental set (and a traditional B Boy set), 80's new wave icon Devo, come a slew of Dance DJ's/acts like Ritchie Hawtin, Timo Maas, Jeff Mills, Ricardo Villalobos and Dave Clarke. The most recent additions are Modeselektor, James Holden, and a M_nus label showcase featuring JPLS, and many others

This year will also see the return of Sonar Pro which was started last year as a way for industry people to connect (WMC ish). From artists, promoters and every facet of the art world, over 700 companies were represented last year. Along with a record fair, the organizers have also set up a 'Professional Area' where you can do business and/or have a meeting. With a huge roster of some of the best names in the music industry and tons of corporate big wigs Sonar could very well be the next WMC.
