Created in 1994, Sónar is a pioneering cultural event with a unique format and content. Its first class reputation as a leading reference for international festivals is thanks to its attention in curation, combining a playful nature, the avant-garde, and experimentation with newest trends in dance and electronic music.
“Music festivals: how it should be done (…) Sonar festival of ‘advanced music and multimedia art’ is built on a virtually faultless formula of sunny, never ending days and the classy network of slickly run venues, snugly housed within Barcelona historic and stylish landscape. It sets a standard that Sonar’s peers find nearly impossible to follow.”
