One of the exciting performances of note is Stereolab, who will be playing their first show together in a decade at the Barcelona-based fest. The Laetitia Sadier-led band also announced that they'll be reissuing seven of their albums spanning 1993’s Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements through 2004’s Margerine Eclipse to be released throughout 2019.
