Barcelona: Sónar Festival

The festival of advanced music and multimedia art Sónar is held in mid-June in Barcelona. You will find established artists of electronic music like Orbital, Jeff Mills and Carl Craig along with other proposals lesser known but much more interesting to me. Although electronic music has a lot of weight on this festival, there is variety of proposals, ranging from the pop-rock to classical music or traditional.

The festival is divided into Sonar by Day and Sónar by Night, with various scenarios and environments scattered throughout Barcelona. Tickets can be purchased separately for each day of the festival, choosing day or night or purchase a full pass. I’ve always preferred to go by day due the kind of music, people and the place where the festival is located (CCCB and MACBA).

I have some photos that correspond to editions of 2008 and 2009, separated a little bit environments. I hope you’ll bother since it is not uncommon to find many local and foreign Lomographers.
