UPDATE: Sonar Festival

Skrillex, who has been busy so far releasing new music (see below) and also just announced a Las Vegas residency, has revealed his plans to be one of the headlining acts as part of the 2013 edition of the Sonar Festival. Set to take place June 14 through June 16 in Barcelona, Spain, the Sonar Festival is a huge event, drawing over 80,000 attendees over the course of three days, all of whom set out to enjoy the best in international music and art, with a heavy emphasis on the tunes. Skrillex will join Pet Shop Boys, Two Door Cinema Club and Kraftwerk as the biggest names on the bill for the festival. Tickets for the event are on sale now via the festival website (link above). As for Skrillex, keep it right here at SeatGeek for news as his 2013 tour plans expand beyond his previously announced Canadian run in July and the aforementioned residency in Vegas.

UPDATE

With Skrillex looking forward to 2013 and Canadian tour stops, comes the news that the 3 time Grammy-winning DJ/producer (who is also nominated for 3 Grammys this year) will be releasing new music over the course of the year. With what he calls “too many songs to know what to do with,” (source: Billboard) Skrillex started releasing new tunes today with the unveiling of a three song EP via YouTube. Entitled Leaving, the EP features the songs “Leaving”, “Scary Bolly Dub” and “The Reason”. He also debuted the new video for “The Summit,” his collaboration with ex-girlfriend Ellie Goulding.

PREVIOUS NEWS

After a successful run this past summer, Skrillex is already looking ahead to 2013. The popular music producer will play a number of Canadian concerts next July. His Full Flex Express tour kicks off in Montreal on the 12th, making stops in Toronto, Winnipeg, and Calgary before wrapping up in Vancouver on the 21st. Click here for Skrillex Tickets, Tour Dates Skrillex’s electronica/dance recordings have earned the LA native widespread acclaim since he first debuted as a solo artist back in 2007. Prior to his first release, 2009’s Gypsyhook EP, Skrillex nee Sonny John Moore fronted the rock band From First to Last and toured with All Time Low and The Rocket Summer. No longer part of a struggling ensemble or anyone’s supporting act, Skrillex has become a household name for hip households (well supplied with headphones) in-the-know. Check out this star on the rise when he heats up his second consecutive summer next year:
