Sónar Barcelona, AKA the festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art, is an annual three-day music festival that takes place in Barcelona, Spain.

The festival was founded in Barcelona back in 1994. It’s now in its 26th year and has brought the party to other cities such as New York, Seoul, Chicago, Hamburg, Buenos Aires, São Paulo and Hong Kong.

This year the Sonar Barcelona moves to July, starting on Thursday, the 18th, through Saturday, the 20th. With over 130 shows planned across Sónar By Day and Sónar By Night, your schedule is sure to be packed so plan accordingly.

Sónar by Day takes place in Fira Montjuïc, from 1pm - 12am and Sónar by Night between 8:30pm - late, in Fira Gran Via L’Hospitalet. Sónar+D is the conference all about technology, creativity and innovation and it takes place all weekend on the site of Sónar by Day.

Shuttle buses take you back and forth from Sónar by Day to Sónar by Night.

If you manage to have some free time or just want to take a break from all the partying, make sure to do a little sightseeing. Wake up early and stretch your legs, walk around. Wander around the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and check out Las Ramblas (although very touristy, still something to see). Get lost, meet some locals, have some drinks and most of all… DANCE.
