Sónar by Day 2013, new venue
After 19 years at the CCCB, the MACBA and the surrounding area, the Sonar festival is moving its daytime headquarters to the Fira Montjuïc area in Plaça d’Espanya, an emblematic location in the city.
The new location will breathe new life into Sónar by Day, with extensive spaces that will facilitate optimal movement by those attending and the professionals participating. Sónar by Day keeps its 4 stages (SonarVillage by Estrella Damm, SonarHall, SonarDôme and SonarComplex), all of which have increased capacities in their new locations. The new Sónar by Day is significantly nearer Sónar by Night, which is still at its usual venue in the Fira Gran Via area in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, and consolidates its four-stage format, (SonarClub, SonarLab, SonarPub and SonarCar, located next to the bumper cars). With the festival’s shuttle buses, the two sites are now only 10 minutes apart.
All the info on the official webpage of the festival.
Sonar 2013 will be held from 13 to 15 June. Te line-up it’s not colosed but yet includes the performance of two great references as Kraftwerk, presenting a 3D technology show, and Pet Shop Boys.
And then Two Door Cinema Club, Diplo, Skrillex and Major Lazer, among others.
And for those who go to the festival for dance, Sonar 2013 offers the outstanding performance by Paul Kalkbrenner, Maceo Plex and a long list of high-level DJs.
And after twenty years, Sonar has also invited artists who have participated to the festival since the beginning. This is the case of Laurent Garnier, who acted in the first edition, or Matthew Herbert Modeselektor.
