What: Sónar Festival
When: 16th – 18th June
One of Europe’s most lauded festivals, Sónar returns for its annual shindig in Barcelona next month. With its traditional By Day and By Night structure, Sónar once again welcomes a host of top tier names from across the board for three days in the Spanish sunshine.
Acts that we’re particularly excited about watching include Anohni’s Hopelessness project, Ata Kak, Ivy Lab, Roots Manuva, Oneohtrix Point Never, Mikael Seifu and Yung Lean.
Showcases also come from the likes of RBMA, Resident Advisor and The Warehouse Project, and we’ll be sure to check out the Sónar+D international conference, with several musical luminaries giving eye opening talks. The likes of Brian Eno, Richie Hawtin, Kode9 and Jean-Michel Jarre will all be offering their two pence across a range of industry subjects.
