Two Big Names Announced for Sónar Reykjavík ’16

Sónar Reykjavík made their first lineup announcement about the 2016 festival today.

The Icelandic acts announced include a rare show from Iceland’s much-admired Apparat Organ Quartet, and performances from homegrown stars Úlfur Úlfur, Sturla Atlas, GANGLY, Skeng and Vaginaboys.

They also dropped a pair of big-name headliners from international electronic music scene – super-producer Hudson Mohawke and veteran electronica star Squarepusher, both from the UK. Joining them will be Oneothrix Point Never, Holly Herndon, Rødhåd, Recondite and The Black Madonna. Which means we have some listening homework to do this winter.
