Barcelona will become the place to be for hip hop and dance music fans in June when the city once again plays host to the Sonar festival.

The popular music and multimedia arts event will come to a number of venues in the Catalan capital from 17 to 19 June.

A number of big names have been confirmed for the live music programme this year, including the Chemical Brothers, Air, Dizzee Rascal, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip and many others.

There will also be a 'Mary Anne Hobbs presents' section, which will include sets by Flying Lotus and the Radio 1 DJ herself.

During the day, Sonar events take place at Barcelona's CCCB and Macba venues, while the evening performances are staged at the Fira Gran Via and L'Auditori.

Last year, some 75,000 people attended Sonar to enjoy gigs by the likes of Orbital, Grace Jones, Animal Collective and Late of the Pier.
