Founded in 1994 as the Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art, Sónar has become an essential event on the European festival calendar and a meeting point for electronic music lovers from all over the continent. With a massive 80,000 visitors each year, Sónar turns Barcelona into the continent’s epicentre of electronic music, transforming the city’s dynamics and atmosphere. This year’s list of artists includes Massive Attack, Richie Hawtin, Boys Noize, Rudimental, Trentemøller, Todd Terje, Caribou, and many more favourites. Sónar by Day showcases concerts and DJs, as well as the new Sónar+D area—an open laboratory for the creative industries and the official meeting point for visionaries, developers and entrepreneurs, as well as record labels, distributors, publishers and promoters. Sónar by Night is where you’ll find the big names. A complete three-day pass costs €195. View the website for other pass prices and more information.
Events are taking place at Fira Montjuïc during the day and Fira Gran Via de L'Hospitalet in the evening.
