Barcelona’s Sónar festival needs little introduction. It has become a world-famous celebration of cutting-edge music and new media art where renowned artists join young pioneers. And alongside the rise of Sónar, another phenomenon has had equal success: Off Sónar.
Taking place around Barcelona it attracts huge numbers and features many of the world’s best DJs. There is no formal connection between Sónar and Off Sónar. But there is no doubt that both feed into Barcelona’s reputation as a haven of creativity, imagination and fun.
This year’s Off Sónar will not disappoint. From the 16th to 19th of June there’ll be a whole host of events such as Detroit Love, Exhale, Drumcode, Get Lost, Inversions, and the Off Sónar Special which will be headlined by the two dance heavyweights Paul Kalkbrenner and Boris Brejcha. Tickets for the events are still on sale - get yours quick before they sell out.
