Sonar, the advanced music and multimedia art festival, takes place in Barcelona every year during three days in June. Sonar’s diverse artistic offer splits between the Sonar by Day activities (in the CCCB and MACBA venues) and Sonar by Night (Fira Gran Via M2 L’Hospitalet), together with some simultaneous gigs like the performances at L’Auditori.
At the 2010 festival, more than 84 thousand people enjoyed the fine selection of an artistic programme which combines the electronica headliners together with hundreds of emerging artists and DJ’s representing the most updated music and new media trends within electronic culture.
Sonar is the meeting point both for a worldwide audience looking for the newest, as well as the professionals, looking for the perfect environment for business and networking.
This coming year the festival takes place on 16, 17 and 18 of June and for the second time in A Coruña on 17 and 18 of June.
The festival has regularly crossed Spanish frontiers since 2002 with events in various parts of the world, adapting the Sónar philosophy to unusual spaces and environments, and highlighting the most interesting aspects of Spanish talent and the scene in the city where it is held. To date, Sónar has travelled to London (an annual event since 2002), New York, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Frankfurt, Chicago and Tokyo, among many other destinations.
An urban event, and a discovery platform. Sonar is a pioneer and influential date on the European cultural calendar thanks to its unique entertainment offer and the singularity of its emplacement.
