Why Sonar Music Festival is one of the best event in Europe
Vida loca en Barcelona
For many Barcelona is the Miami of Europe, warm beaches, parties all night long, liberal mentality, good wine and food. Walking trough the charming Ramblas and eat local specialities like Serrano and tapas. Visit the Sagrada Familia, one of the most beautiful church ever built, or the camp Nou, where play the stronger soccer players in the world. The costal area offers many clubs and, during the good season, you can enjoy the sea and get tanned.
With clubs and bars open until morning, it’s possible to have fun the whole year, however one of the best moment to come in the city, it’s for the Sonar Music Festival, an electronic music event that embracing the entire city, between main stages and Off-Sonar events. It started in the 1990s and is today the final word in electronic music, video and multimedia arts, cinema, sound, and vision.
By day, you can go to through the SónarVillage, SónarComplex, SónarHall, and SónarDome to catch music, technology conferences, and more. By night, SónarClub, SónarLab, SónarCar and SónarPub at the Fira Gran Via de l’Hospitalet.
With the best DJ’s in the world it will be hard to decide. A$AP Rocky, Paul Kalkbrenner, Disclousure some of the top names of this upcoming edition.
Not just festival: party hard at off sonar
During this week the city never sleep and party is non-stop. After the main stages is time to join the Off Sonar, located in arena nearby the metropolitan area. I’ve personal liked more, harder music, less people and colder air make the Off Sonar even better of the Sonar itself. With many resident DJ’s from the legendary Berlin club Berghain and amazing lights effect you won’t regret your choice. One of my favorite dj sets of last year was surely Solomun, here is the performance on Youtube.
Visiting Barcelona is a good reason itself to come, but treat you with a cool experience and join the Sonar Music Festival during the day, and the Off Sonar by night. You’ll listen the best DJ’s in the world performing on studied great locations. Don’t forget to buy your tickets in advance in order to save money and be sure to be there.
