Tottie talks to Yukimi Nagano at Sónar Festival 2017

Yukimi Nagano

Little Dragon are no strangers to Sonar Festival. Having previously performed twice at Sonar by Day, this year 125,000 festival-goers would get the chance to see their unique and undeniable style of electronic pop at Sonar by Night and for many of us it would be the first time seeing them perform their fifth studio album ‘Season High’ released earlier this year.

Friday night DJ and presenter on Track Family Radio, Tottie, caught up with Yukimi Nagano right before their performance to talk about her personal experiences working in electronic music. “I have always had a lot of support with the guys and the band, it’s definitely harder going it alone as a woman in the industry.We also find out how she prepares for live shows and her top 3 female artists of all time.

Her advice to girls trying to break it into the music industry, “Dont be intimidated by anyone, the sky’s the limit“. So on that solid piece of advise, get out there and show them who’s boss ladies.

This year Barcelona City FM presenters D.N.S & Tottie reported at Sonar Festival on a topic very close to their hearts; bridging the gender gap in electronic music and tech culture and talking exclusively to female artists performing at Sonar Festival 2017 – #WomenInSonar2017.

Catch up on all the interviews on the Barcelona City FM Facebook page and YouTube channel featuring some of the fantastic female artists who performed at Sonar Festival and Sonar+D this year.
