Known for his contribution to gqom music and his new single, "Anywhere We Go" with Shekhinah, DJ Lag is on his way to the annual Sónar Festival in Barcelona, Spain, which will be held from July 18-20.
We spoke to him:
How did your involvement in Sónar come about?
I’ve always wanted to play at the Sónar Festival since my career started. I think they heard about me through the shows I’ve been doing. They reached out to my team and made it happen that way.
Why did you say yes to being a part of this festival?
It’s a festival I’ve dreamt of playing for a long time, it was on my bucket list. So when the opportunity arose I couldn’t say no! It’s really a dream of mine. The lineups are always fire... since the beginning they’ve had the biggest acts on their stages, like Kraftwerk and Richie Hawtin and people like Bjork and Diplo who have entire cultures that were created around them.
