Yes, it feels as though we’ve just seen the wrap of Sonar 2008, which featured performances from the likes of Boys Noize, The Field, Flying Lotus, Neon Neon, Ricardo Villalobos… you get the idea. The annual music and multimedia festival, held in Barcelona, is a mecca for top-shelf electronic music artists and labels, so it’s worth saving up the pennies and booking an early flight for the 2009 edition. And without further ado, the dates are:

June 18, 19, and 20, 2009.

No hints yet as to the lineup, but the aforementioned names should be an indicator of this year’s roster. If you need further convincing, recall this.
