Sónar Festival

Sónar is an annual three-day music festival held in Barcelona. It is described officially as a festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art. The festival runs for three days and nights, usually starting on a Thursday in the third week of June. Sónar is the essential meeting point for an alert public, cutting-edge artists and the most influential professionals from the sectors of music and modern arts.

Sónar By Day takes place in the Center of Contemporary Culture (CCCB) and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA) very near to La Rambla. It usually starts around midday and continues until around 10pm for each of the three days of the festival. The 'By Day' festival features live concerts, DJs, Multimedia Art, Record/Clothes Fairs, Technology Demos, The Sónar Cinema and various other activities.

Sónar By Night takes place away from the centre of Barcelona. It has four locations occupied by distinguished national and international names from the world of electronic music. Each night DJs, VDJs and concerts from the broadest spectrum of dance music appear simultaneously in the four areas.

The festival's lineups tend to favour electronic music. This includes techno, house, electro, IDM, hiphop and various experimental music and avantgarde types of music. There are many international acts, as well as a selection of Spanish artists.
