Sonar has added to its cache of international festivals via a new event in Sweden. Taking place in Södermalm, Stockholm on 14-15 Feb 2014, the fest aligns with Sonar’s other 2014 incarnations, in Icelandic capital Reykjavik (13-15 Feb) and Barcelona (12-14 Jun). Arriba!

Sonar’s new edition advertised, it’s now time to appraise the latest artist additions to next year’s Bearded Theory, Celtic Connections and Hammerfest. Oh, and, coming soon(er); Cardiff’s charitable Mind Fest, labyrinthine Bristol one-dayer Simple Things, and the 2013 edition of Sŵn which – despite losing Deerhunter, Amateur Best, and Danny Byrd, plus both Spectrals, and The Lay-Lows from its bill, has named brand new adds in The Wytches, Outfit and Wichita DJs.
