Sonar is an international festival of advanced music and new media art. First created in 1994, Sonar
brings together established and emerging artists spanning the musical and audiovisual production
Sonar Barcelona is from the 18th
of July and is separated into two locations. Sonar by Day, at Fira
Montjuic which features concerts and djs, showcases, and networking events, and; Sonar by Night, at Fira
Gran Via de L'Hospitalet, featuring live shows and dj sets from high profile international artists.
There are two showcases stages at the festival. SonarDome presented by Red Bull spotlights global styles
and sounds from on-the-rise and established artists. SonarLab presented by Resident Advisor will focus
on the bass music spectrum as well as explore current club music with top acts.
Barcelona is alive with plenty of off-Sonar events hosted by bars and clubs throughout the city as well, so
you will never miss a moment of talent and artistry.
Tickets are on sale now, and festival goers can choose from a wide variety of ticket types, including
single day passes, Sonar by Day, Sonar by Night, and SonarPass.
SonarCashless is the unique and only way to pay for food and drinks at the festival. The wristband is valid
for the duration of the festival and can be topped up at any Cashless point throughout the festival grounds.
The best part is that you can even reclaim your unused funds during the festival at Cashless Return points,
or online after the fact.
