Reunited hip hop group and dream pop artist join Skream as new additions to this year's festival

Sónar Festival, taking place in Barcelona from June 13-15, have today announced a fresh round of additions to their line-up.

Bat For Lashes, currently touring last year's The Haunted Man album, will appear on the SonarPub stage on Friday 14, while the same stage will see the triumphant return of legendary hip-hop outfit Jurassic 5, as well as a set from dubstep big-hitter Skream, the following evening.

Elsewehere, The SonarCar stage will be hosting acts from across some of Europe's most important electronic and dance labels, with Anstam, Benjamin Damage, Phon.o and Bambounou of Germany's 50 Weapons and San Proper and Antal of Dutch imprint Rush Hour being just a few of the many artists on show.

These are all joining an already impressive line-up of artists the Quietus loves, thank-you-very-much, including Kraftwerk, The Pet Shop Boys, Vatican Shadow, Liars, Darkstar, Karenn, Paul Kalkbrenner, Nicolas Jaar, Sherwood + Pinch, Delorean, Gold Panda, La Bien Querida and Baauer.

Further line-up details, weekend and day passes are currently available here.
