After the groundbreaking success of the series of shows designed and staged by film maker Adam Curtis and Robert Del Naja in the cities of New York, Manchester and Duisberg, Massive Attack will be playing at Sonar 10 years after their previous performance. According to a survey by The Guardian, the single “Unfinished Sympathy” from their debut album ‘Blue Lines’ was judged to be the best in the top 10 list of music history. Their journey however, did by no means stop or stall with just that. They went on to release many other record breaking albums like : ‘Protection’, ’100th Window, ‘Mezzanine” and ‘Heligoland’ as well as countless remixes and many singles that contributed in making up one the most personal dents in pop music experiments over the past two and a half decade.

It is a proof that Sonar –as an organization concerned with cutting edge art, music and technology- has firmly cemented its reputation as one of the largest and most progressive festival of its kind, while not compromising on innovation or experimentation.”
