Getting a Taste for Sónar

It was embarassing how completely mad people got at Buraka Som Sistema’s gig at Xoyo. Yeah, I am talking about myself as well. But then, we only live once, innit?

Plus they do this to us because they can, they posess this relentless bootie-shaking power, which, as it happens, they’re going to unleash once again at the Roundhouse on the 19th of March, as part of Taste of Sónar, a preview for the massive Spanish electronic festival in June in Barcelona and Galicia.

If you know you are most definitely not going to be leaving the country – which, in doing so means you’ll miss out M.I.A., Die Antwoord and Cut Copy – then at least don’t sit there feeling sorry for yourself and get along to join Buraka and guests.

But if you are going, then this is the perfect chance to get to know some of the artists in the line-up a little better, so you have time to learn a bunch of the songs off by heart and get one up on all those who don’t know the likes of The Gaslamp Killer, MJ Cole, Benji B, Braiden, Axel Boman, Tiger & Woods and Noaipre…

We’ve already drawn our competition but the Roundhouse are running a special promotion for 2 for 1 tickets! All you need to do is click book now and enter the promo code: SONAR!
