The program details of Sónar Hong Kong’s highly anticipated maiden instalment have finally arrived, with live acts, DJs and creative technology shows happening across six stages at Hong Kong Science Park on April 1, 2017.
Like its Barcelona mothership, Sónar Hong Kong’s programme is packed music art and innovative experiences, from large-scale outdoor spectacles to intimate indoor performances and immersive audio-visual shows.
The music lineup features a diverse blend of fresh electronic talents and legends, international, regional and local. This includes SónarVillage Stage top-billers, sonic pioneer DJ Shadow, genre-blending legend Gilles Peterson, and the queen of grime music Lady Leshurr.
The festival will appeal to dance fans with techo heavyweight Dave Clarke, Berlin and Ibiza’s favourite Ellen Allien, and Warp Records’ mainstay Clark, who’ll be performing at SónarClub, the festival’s largest indoor venue.
The SónarLab will be home to producer Evian Christ and his signature hip-hop, trance and grime mix, as well as various other edgy electronica acts. For a complete music lineup and performance schedule, see here.
Beyond the music is the unmissable creative programme of Sónar+D, the “congress” of creative technology. It features a series of tech-centred workshops, talks and an expo, plus interactive virtual reality “fabulous wonder.land”, a VR music video inspired by Damon Albarn’s musical, and new media arts installations and performances by Dirty Electronics, Xceed, Daito Manabe, Nosaj Thin, and more.
Tickets are now available through the festival’s official website, with two types available: Sónar+D-only tickets are priced at HKD180, while music plus Sónar+D tickets are HKD780.
