Sónar, the international electronic music festival, will make its Turkish debut next weekend. Sónar Istanbul will take place March 24 and 25.

Past global editions of Sónar visited Chicago, Stockholm, Buenos Aires, London and Toronto, among many others. Like other worldwide editions of Sónar, the Istanbul festival will include a number of additional components, including conferences, art exhibitions and multimedia performances by local and foreign musicians and artists.

Featured performers at the Sónar debut include Nina Kraviz, Floating Points, DJ Koze, and Jimi Tenor. SónarLab, presented by Red Bull Music Academy, will return to the festival as well.
