InformationSónar is a pioneering festival that is unique in terms of its format and content: it is an international benchmark of the first order thanks to an outstanding cultural range that combines entertainment, artistry, the cutting edge and experimentation with new musical trends that set the international agenda. At all its events, Sónar sounds out the current landscape of electronic music and its interactions and hybridization with other artistic disciplines, bringing together established artists and the emerging talent that renews and innovates in all areas of musical and audiovisual creation.
The Sónar Barcelona artistic programme is divided between the activities at Sónar by Day (concerts, showcases, professional zone, exhibition area), the keynote of which is the search for new talent, and the large format shows at Sónar by Night, which feature more well-known leading names on the international music landscape.
After 19 years at the CCCB, the MACBA and the surrounding area, the festival is moving its daytime headquarters to the Fira Montjuïc area in Plaça d'Espanya, an emblematic location in the city.
The new location will breathe new life into Sónar by Day, with extensive spaces that will facilitate optimal movement by those attending and the professionals participating.
Sónar by Day keeps its 4 stages (SonarVillage by Estrella Damm, SonarHall, SonarDôme and SonarComplex), all of which have increased capacities in their new locations.
The new Sónar by Day is significantly nearer Sónar by Night, which is still at its usual venue in the Fira Gran Via area in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, and consolidates its four-stage format, (SonarClub, SonarLab, SonarPub and SonarCar, located next to the bumper cars). With the festival's shuttle buses, the two sites are now only 10 minutes apart.
