Overview
More
One of the most innovative music festivals in the world has its roots in the cultural city of Barcelona, a creative hub renowned for its innovation and eccentricity. The Sonar Festival started in the 1990s, and is now the final word in electronic music, video and multimedia arts, cinema, sound and vision. It attracts music fans and technology wizards alike. Every June, the Sonar Festival keeps itself at the cutting-edge of creative electronic music, technology and innovation. It’s a visually stunning festival, attracting crowd pleasers such as The Chemical Brothers, as well as lesser-known international artists, for the thousands of spectators. It’s a great, happy, party atmosphere for aficionados.

Been to the Sonar festival now 5 years running and it is by far the best music festival I've ever been to. There is always a good mix of electronic music and the atmosphere, especially in the main courtyard of sonar day, is always amazing.

For anyone who has a true appreciation for electronic music, sound engineering and technology in general; sonar is the place for you. This is not your everyday Top 40 festival; this will push you to challenge your own musical limits and taste. For those who...More
