Sˇnar is twenty years old, but this is not the only anniversary that is going to be celebrated in the new Fira Montju´c area: Red Bull Music Academy, the world's most important platform for new talents, celebrates its fifteenth birthday in 2013. And once again this year, it will be curating the SonarD˘me stage, which will be at a new venue for the first time and will feature a special line-up, headed by three outstanding creative duets, and include a selection of the most promising participants that have passed through the Academy in its 15-year history.

The performance by the New Yorkers Metro Area is undoubtedly one of the most important of the year at SonarD˘me: Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani have been the main architects of the disco-house renaissance over the last 10 years, and have always maintained their productions at a very high standard. Another of the essential duos appearing on the stage curated by the Academy is formed by Jneiro Jarel and the great DOOM, who are opening up new escape routes for the hip hop underground under the name of JJ DOOM. The third axis of this front line is occupied by another brilliantly successful double act: TNGHT, the duo consisting of Scotland's Hudson Mohawke and Canada's Lunice, devotees of rap in all its forms, children of the bass diaspora and creators of instant dancefloor hits.

In addition to these artists, at SonarD˘me we will also be able to enjoy the organic machine-free techno of Elektro Guzzi; the kraut-jazz symbiosis of JESSE & Jimi Tenor; another high-flying duo, formed by James Pants & Felix Kubin; the boogie funk of Krystal Klear; the proven quality of the East Coast MC Oddisee, accompanied on this occasion by a band; the delicacy and soundscapes of Anenon; advanced and rugged techno from the Turkish-Greek duo Cassegrain; and the thrilling ghetto beats of Branko, a founder member of Buraka Som Sistema, among many others.

Four Spanish artists presented and chosen by the Academy to perform at SonarD˘me are worthy of special mention: bRUNA is undoubtedly one of the Spanish producers on the top of his game right now; a former participant of the Academy in Toronto (2007), he will be presenting the euphoric live tracks from his recent and excellent "Thence" live; meanwhile, Madrid's C. Tangana will show us why he is one of the essential names in Spanish rap right now, the Mallorcan dj Satore will pay tribute to the the classics of deep house and disco music, and Tarragona's We Like Turtles will get the dancefloor into shape with their upfront and open-minded house.
