Sonar Lisboa Portugal 2024

Sónar Lisboa has finalised the lineup for its third edition. On the 22nd – 24th March 2024 in Parque Eduardo VII, international icons and rising stars will cross paths with local legends and trailblazing artists from the Portuguese underground.

Headlining Sónar by Night are 2MANYDJS, who’ll perform an unprecedented, eclectic and never-seen-before DJ set with special guests ÉCLAIR FIFI and EROL ALKAN. They’re joined by multi-talented artist and genre-defying performer SEVDALIZA; UK jungle revivalist NIA ARCHIVES; and a heavyweight session of electro from HELENA HAUFF B2B IMOGEN.

An artist who’s synonymous with electronic music across the world, PAUL KALKBRENNER, will headline Sónar by Day, with a cinematic live set. UK crossover star SHYGIRL will present her new concept show ‘Club Shy’, translating her tracks to the dancefloor; while Estonia’s TOMMY CASH presents his idiosyncratic vision of hip hop. Also appearing live is US producer ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER, performing his latest album Again together with visual artist Freeka Tet. Amongst the DJs set to play are ELIZA ROSE, who’ll show off her knowledge of UK garage and house; BONOBO, who’ll explore his influences from afrobeat to hip hop; and Lisbon-based Australian selector CC:DISCO!, who’ll play a homecoming set.

Producer and DJ BRANKO has been at the epicentre of Lisbon’s electronic music scene for over two decades. The former Buraka Som Sistema member will perform a new live set based on his forthcoming 2024 album. His Enchufada label has also curated a special showcase on Sunday at Sónar by Day, featuring DJ sets from Brazilian baile funk specialist VHOOR and rising local batida producer VANYFOX. Also invited are IOLANDA, who’ll perform live; DJ SATELITE; and ZENGXRL.

Portugal’s vibrant local scene features throughout the lineup. Digger and selector CHIMA ISAARO is one of Lisboa’s best-kept secrets, she’ll perform at Sónar by Night, alongside local legends YEN SUNG and PHOTONZ. Amongst the local artists at Sónar by Day are XEXA, whose fourth world soundscapes draw on  afrofuturism and her São Toméan heritage; Moullinex △ GPU Panic’s airy synthpop; new wave and post-punk trio CONFERÊNCIA INFERNO and a pair of DJs who champion the sounds of lusophone Africa, BATIDA and CELESTE MARIPOSA.

For deep, transportative dance music at Sónar by Day, look no further than WATA IGARASHI, who’ll perform live. The Japanese artist is joined by a pair of DJs who favour deep, hypnotic techno: France’s LAURA BCR and local hero AMULADOR. As DRESDENIVAN SMAGGHE and MANFREDAS explore dance music’s most unorthodox and lysergic zones; they’ll find a kindred spirit in local selector ANA PACHECO. Plus there’ll be a hypnotic session from the godfather of Portuguese electronic music, RUI VARGAS.

Also at Sónar by Day, PEREL appears with a hybrid set of italo disco and slow acid, and Porto’s DJ LYNCE evokes the golden era of rave in his live set. Outspoken UK artist GROVE collides drum’n’bass, punk, and dancehall, while FLORENTINO mixes latin rhythms and UK bass music. Plus there’s a geographically-diverse, experimental club music from IKRAM BOULOUM B2B ODETE and a DJ set of hyperpop-tinged tech house courtesy of MONA YIM.

HUDSON MOHAWKE and TIGA’S collaborative live AV project Love Minus Zero reconfigures the concept of the rave for a 21st century audience: catch them at Sónar by Night. Also on the bill is idiosyncratic live performer MARIE DAVIDSON. For DJ sets, look no further than JENNIFER LOVELESS’ high-energy house and techno; the ‘genre-fluid’ selections of Live From Earth’s DJ GIGOLA; and a 100% female, 100% Detroit back-to-back from DJ MINX and DJ HOLOGRAPHIC.
