Sonar Festival transmits music into space as part of their Sonar Calling project.

Sonar Festival is in it’s illustrious 25th year, and the organisers have decided to do something a little bit special in celebration.

Sonar Calling is a project that beams the music of a number of contemporary artists up into space. The transmission, that includes the work of Kate Tempest and Zora Jones, will take place on the 14th, 15th and 16th of May.

The music will be aimed at Luytens Star b, a exoplanet 12.4 lightyears away from earth, which may be potentially life supporting.
