It's that time of year again, festival fever has taken over the minds of any self respecting music lover and everyone is talking about what’s on offer this year. The usual questions are who’s playing where, when are they playing and how the f**k do we get all of our mates to buy tickets and flights at the same time.
Well, I can tell you that Sonar 2010 is looking rather spectacular this year! Along side some of the festivals’ old favourites headlining, we have some quality additions to the acts that will be titillating us over the 17th, 18th & 19th June. Instead of me continuing to ramble on for you to find out which concerts, DJ’s and showcases are on, I have decided to spare you any irritation and just write a nice big list:
Concerts & DJs
The Chemical Brothers, Roxy Music, Air, LCD Soundsystem, Plastikman, Jónsi, Dizzee Rascal, 2manydjs, Booka Shade, Hot Chip, Fuck Buttons, Aeroplane, King Midas Sound, Broadcast, The Sugarhill Gang, Matthew Herbert's One Club, Flying Lotus, Pete Tong, Joy Orbison, Zomby, New Young Pony Club, Roska, Necro Deathmort, Mary Anne Hobbs, David M, John Talabot, Bradien, Speech Debelle, Emilio José, Uffie, Jimi Tenor & Kabu Kabu, Hudson Mohawke, Carte Blanche (DJ Mehdi & Riton), Nosaj Thing Visual Show, Delorean, The Pinker Tones, Noaipre, Sandwell District, bRUNA, Bomba Estéreo, Cora Novoa, Cluster, Mike Slott, Aufgang, bcn216 + Tristan Perich, Bflecha, The Slew featuring Kid Koala, Caspa feat.

I have been to Sonar every year since 2004 and I will continue to go for as long as possible. It would take a lot to stop me going to my favourite festival. If you haven’t been you should try it. I’m pretty sure it would be your favourite festival if you managed to get there.
