Neuroscientist by day, DJ/producer/composer by night, Floating Points will be playing live as an extra-special treat for Sónar's guests. The man of the moment, Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never is gonna be there. What more could you ask for in a line-up? Oh wait, Berlin based tastemaker Ellen Allien, UK favourite Ben UFO and Copenhagen's 4×4 techno queen Courtesy will also be making appearances.

Beyond electronic music, the hip hop scene won't miss out this year, with fast-flowing lyrical phenomenon Angel Haze confirmed to play during the festival at the spectacular Harpa Concert Hall. Hot on the heels of end of year pick  'Lantern', electronic hip hop hybrid Hudson Mohawke is also set to wow the crowds. Oh and there's more, much more.
