First names announced for Spanish festival

Kraftwerk are set to take their 3D to Spain, with Sonar announcing the first names on its bill for next summer.

Located in Barcelona, Sonar has long fostered a reputation for eclectic, forward thinking line ups. Gaining acclaim across the continent and beyond, the festival has grown to launch events in South Africa, Brazil and more. But Sonar's heart remains in Barcelona.

The festival is preparing for 2013's event, and this morning announced the first names on its line up. German pioneers Kraftwerk are set to play a very rare live show at the Spanish festival. The band will bring their 3D set to the event, matching ground-breaking visuals to their peerless back catalogue of musical innovation.

Elsewhere, British synth pop legends Pet Shop Boys are to perform at Sonar, while Two Door Cinema Club are also planning to take part. Lindstrøm and Todd Terje will bring their collaborative set to the festival, with other names on the line up including Vatican Shadow, Fantastic Mr Fox, Hot Natured and Bradien + Eduard Escoffet.

Reduced price tickets are on sale until January 10th. Full details HERE.

Sonar runs between June 13th - 15th.
