Sónar Reykjavik, the most glacial outpost of the global festival phenomenon, today announces new names for its 2018 edition. Headlining the festival will be long-standing electronica innovators Underworld. Their set at Sónar Reykjavik coincides with the 30th anniversary of their debut album, and their most recent collection ‘Barbara Barbara, We Face a Shining Future’ demonstrates that they’re as powerful a creative force as ever.
Joining them will be euphoric future-retro space disco Norwegian producer Lindstrøm; Reykjavik-based Australian artist Ben Frost, crafter of brutally beautiful and apocalyptic experimental productions; and Los Angeles’ TOKiMONSTA, who will bring her slick take on R&B and hip-hop to Iceland this March.
Boosting the cutting edge domestic contingent this year will be hip-hop collective Reykjavíkurdætur (Daughters of Reykjavik), mixing fiercely intense bars with an eagerness to court controversy. As Noisey stated, “They’ve told the Icelandic Prime Minister to “suck my pussy” live on TV, written songs about anal sex, and performed on stage in nude underwear.”
