Sonar 2017

12 performances you should not miss at

Kaput´s 12 not to be missed performances at this years Sonar edition are:

Princess Nokia
Thursday, Sonar by Day, Estrella Damm, 16:40
We recently had the pleasure to experience the hype around Princess Nokia first hand at Moogfest. Take a look at the pictures and we see us in the front row.

Arca (live) & Jesse Kanda (AV)
Thursday, Sonar by Day, SonarHall, 20:00
The question is not if Arca and Jesse Kanda are ready for us, the question is, are we ready for them:

Yves Tumor
Thursday, Sonar by Day, SonarXS, 19:50
In April of this year Kaput travelled for the first time to Belgrade to participate at Resonate Festival. A trip full of great moments as you could read in our summery, but the most explosive performance of all came by Yves Tumor. You better do not miss this one. Life changer potential.

Andy Stott
Thursday, Sonar by Day, SonarDome, 20:00
A modern lover with an unique pop sensibility in his electronic symphonies. He gonna play live at Sonar. Just sayin.

Lena Willikens
Friday, Sonar by Day, SonarVillage, 16:05
We are far away from being neutral, when it comes to Lena Willikens, so why pretending. Here comes her latest remix work for SMD named fittingly “Far Away From A Distance“.

Friday, Sonar by Day, SonarVillage, 18:00
We could not think of any artist better fitting to play the sundowner set on the SonarVillage stage.

Marie Davidson presents “Bullshit Treshold”
Friday, Sonar by Day, SonarDome, 19:50
We are not allowed to say a single word about this upcoming performance yet – but this will be an European premiere featuring a very special video stage set up. For preparation we recommend this little video portrait:

Saturday, Sonar by Day, SonarVillage, 21:15
On 6th of August Keith McIvor and Jonnie Wilkes celebrate 20 years of their legendary club night at home in Glasgow. Only fools miss out that night. That said, have a listen to their Fact mix and come down to SonarVillage with us.

Veronica Vasicka
Saturday, Sonar by Day, SonarDome, 16:10
The Minimal Wave and Cititrax label owner in the mix, always a mind-blowing journey between the 80s and today. Here you find our talk with Veronica:
I don´t understand when what I like became cool and why.

Star Eyes b2b Jubilee
Saturday, Sonar by Day, SonarDome, 20:45
The former editor in chief of XLR8R Magazine and now the daily Red Bull Music Academy Radio host will spin back to back with Jubilee. Get ready for a rainy dance floor. And watch her take a walk through San Francisco.

Marcel Dettmann & Dr. Rubinstein
Saturday, Sonar by Night, SonarLab 03:05
Festivals always try to come up with some first time b2b-combinations to have some historic impact. Fair enough. But rarely it works out in the intended way. In the case of those two birds we are very positive that 1 +1 will lead to the magic number of Pi.

Daphni & Hunee
Saturday, Sonar by Night, SonarLab 05:05
And another b2b we only have super positive feelings about. Dan Snaith (aka Caribou aka Daphni) and Hun Choi are buddies and sound lovers – only the devil can sabotage this set.
