Sónar Festival is one of the world's most esteemed electronic, alternative and experimental music festivals, held early each summer in the city of Barcelona.
Championing underground musical talent – alongside forward-thinking technology, art and innovation – the Spanish festival has spawned satellite events across the globe, all sharing the ethos and vision of the original.
But Barcelona remains the home of Sónar, and for fans and industry professionals alike, a trip to the city in mid-June is an unmissable highlight of the worldwide season.

Venues range from an outdoor plaza and exhibition centre to clubs and bars (and even rooftops) as the festival takes over the beautiful coastal city of Barcelona, on Spain's Costa Brava.
