Sonar Festival 2018 Barcelona’s annual International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art.
Sonar music festival takes place over 3 days and 2 nights. In the third week of June at a variety of different venues all over the city will make its return from June 14th to June 16th 2018.
Over 123,000 people attended in 2017 and with what’s in store for Sonar Barcelona 2018 we wouldn’t be surprised if more people were to attend this year.
Since 2013 Sonar’s activities have been divided into two main locations and this year will be no different. The festival presents a daytime programme at Sonar by Day located in Fira Montjuïc and then introducing larger shows at Sonar by Night which feature all the leading names in the international music scene in Fira Gran Via de L’Hospitalet.
This year Sonar is celebrating its 25th anniversary and is promising to be its most thrilling showcase of music and cutting-edge technology ever.
Look forward to many surprises along the way as Sonar will blow all your expectations out of the water with its music diversity: from the more mainstream sets to the most unusual and experimental sets you will ever see.
Sonar Festival has a reputation for drawing in an exceptional lineup of artists to celebrate and test the boundaries of electronic music.
But let’s not forget that this isn’t just about music you will be encouraged to explore and to dig into new territory in terms of art and technology also.
This festival is absolutely remarkable, you will undoubtedly walk away with a myriad of memories of seeing and hearing things you weren’t expecting to. They have truly become an epicentre for creative people to meet and experience sound and art at its finest.
This festival’s concept has proven to be quite the success as since it’s beginning in 1994 has been taken abroad to other cities, namely Hong Kong, New York, Seoul, Istanbul and many more…So if you’re unable to make it to Sonar Barcelona then look out for other locations around the world, this is a festival that should be high on your bucket list for 2018!
