After announcing the first names for its lineup at the end of November 2017, the organizers of Catalan Festival Sónar 2018 has surprised today by making public up to 50 new confirmations. Among the amalgam of names stands out the presence of one of the totems of the music world scene as Thom Yorke, leader of Radiohead, in addition to Diplo presenting Distruction Boyz, the DJ Set of Modeselektor, the new show by Laurent Garnier, Motor City Drum Ensemble & Jeremy Underground, Yung Lean or Spanish proposals such as Rosalía, Niño de Elche & Israel Galván or the comeback of Refree.
Tom Yorke will present a very special concert on June 16 at night where he will review his career with Nigel Godrich (producer of most of the Radiohead albums) and Tarik Barri, the artist responsible for the visual device of the show. On the other hand Diplo will come to Sónar de dia with his new show in which the presence of African artists stands out, while Niño del Elche will present an exclusive show for this edition of Sónar where he will collaborate with dancer Israel Galván.
