- Review: Sónar Barcelona 2018
A pioneering European festival, started in 1994, Sónar is renowned for its unique format and musical program that showcases the latest trends in dance and electronica as well as those artists pushing the limits of musical expression.
With hundreds of artists, performers and DJ’s divided over two emblematic locations – Sónar by Day at the foot of Montjuic, and Sónar by Night in the stunning Fira Gran Via complex – Sónar is a creative playground, fostering and encouraging new interactions between established artists, exciting newcomers and our open minded international audience.
Added in 2013, Sónar+D is an annual congress dedicated to creativity, technology and business – with talks, conferences, installations and exhibitions, as well as practical networking opportunities, workshops and hackathons. Housed in the Sónar by Day venue, the majority of Sónar+D activities are open to Sónar ticket holders.
For one year only, Sónar 2019 will take place one month later, on July 18, 19 and 20. The following year Sónar 2020 will return to its usual dates, June 18, 19 and 20.
