Other People boss Nicolas Jaar, French duo Justice, and Moscow stalwart Nina Kraviz are among the artists to be announced on the bill for Sónar 2017. Taking place June 14-17, the 24th edition of the Barcelona festival will host its daytime program at the Fira Montjuïc venue, while the nighttime program will take place at the Fira Gran Via.

The Black Madonna, Cashmere Cat, Gaika, and Moderat are among the other artists scheduled to perform. Alongside the musical component of the festival, the Sonar+D conference will focus on issues of technology and business, with a particular focus on virtual reality.
