For music fans, June in Barcelona has special meaning. It's the month when, for the past 24 years, the Sónar festival has filled the city with rhythm, creativity and technology. A unique energy swirls around Sónar weekend thanks to its mix of cutting-edge performers, big-name pop acts, and both experimental and star DJs combined with digital culture and enthusiastic crowds.
The festival is more than a weekend. Cultural activities of the highest order will take place throughout the city for the entire week of Sónar. Between Monday 11 and Sunday June 17, Barcelona will become an unparalleled stage for international contemporary culture. A wide range of activities and artistic formats will take place throughout city’s different cultural spaces, for an authentic Sónar Week, in all its forms as festival, congress and exhibitions.
Sónar encompasses a variety of spaces including an R&D area at the daytime venue, (Fira Montjuïc) and also Fira Gran Via L'Hospitalet. It's also enticing for music professionals, thanks to Sónar+D, an international conference that attracts experts from around the world. Sónar is more than three days to let loose, experience the meeting of creative minds, and celebrate the incredible results.
"The fact that it's been going for 25 years means that it must be good. Avant-garde music, creativity and technology brought to you by established artists and experts and emerging talent at a unique festival."
