Influential label Life and Death and pioneer European festival Sónar will join forces to create one night filled with a diverse range of DJ sets, live performances and an unforgettable night at Brooklyn’s haven Avant Gardner.

Founded in 2010 by DJ Tennis, Life and Death is one of the leading contemporary underground dance music labels. Releasing records varied in tone and texture, the label also hosts their worldwide showcases. The desire to challenge the status quo remains at the core of the Life and Death ethos.
What began in 1994, Sónar is known for its unique format and musical programming that showcases the latest trends in dance and electronic music as well as those artists pushing the limits of musical expression. Since 2002, Sónar has held events in 65 cities across the globe, and currently celebrates annual editions in Barcelona, Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Reykjavik and Mexico City.
With a cast of Sónar alumni and Life and Death signers on board, Avant Gardner's The Great Hall, The Kings Hall, and newly added Spiegeltent will remain for this unique joint occasion. Adding to the venue's impressive lighting production and top of the line KV2 audio sound system, the Italian label and Sónar will fill the vast spaces throughout Avant Gardner with lively art installations, exceptional music and bespoke designs.
