The Sonar Festival – Barcelona’s Biggest Electronic Music Festival

The Sonar Festival is the biggest festival of electronic music and culture that is celebrated every summer in Barcelona. The activities are divided in two big places: Sonar by Day in Fira Montjuïc near Sants-Montjuïc with concerts, showcases and areas and big shows of Sonar by Night in Fira Gran Via de L’Hospitalet, where the most remarkable artists from the international musical panorama go on stage. The nearest metro station to the festival location is Europa Fira. The Sonar Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art avoids commercial music and promotes new artists and proposes independent ones.
