Sónar is the festival of advanced music and multimedia art that takes place at various venues in Barcelona (Spain) in the third week of June since 1994. Sónar 2012 will take place on 14, 15 and 16 of June, with artists as New Order, Fatboy Slim, Lana Del Rey and many more.
In Barcelona, Sónar’s artistic programme is divided between the activities at Sónar by Day (concerts, showcases, professional zone, exhibition area), dedicated to the search for new talent, located on Carrer Montalegre, 5, in the area of CCCB and MACBA, and the major shows at Sónar by Night, on Av. Botánica, 62 in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, that you can reach with the SónarBus all night long from Plaza de les Dressanes. Sónar by Night presents the leading names on the international music landscape.
As a perfect and strategic accomodation to enjoy the Festival, we can offer our exclusive flats in the city center: the Plaza Catalunya apartments or the Las Ramblas apartments. We have large and fully equipped apartments ideal for groups, offering everything you need to have an amazing stay.
Sónar is a pioneering festival that is unique for format and content: a leading international benchmark thanks to a carefully assembled range of culture that combines entertainment with artistry, the avant garde and experimentation, featuring the most consolidated artists and trends in electronic music and their interactions and hybridisations with other genres.
Each year, the festival also features a series of parallel events in cultural venues in the city, such as the Auditori (the Barcelona main music Auditorium) or Cosmocaixa (Barcelona’s Science Museum), and occasional collaborations with other main city events (such as the Summer festival’s GREC in 2010 and 2011).
More than 80 thousand people enjoy a faultless programme which combined the major headliners in modern electronica with an extensive line-up of emerging artists and djs, trendsetters in today’s music and new media art.
Sónar is also a meeting point for an audience eager for new ideas and specifically for professionals from all over the world from various sectors in the creative industries, who come together at SonarPro, the ideal place for doing business and making contacts.
