Sónar by Night
By Tamara Izko
Barcelona’s hottest advanced music, creativity and technology event needs no intro, but with a vast, eclectic program bringing together the latest trends, it’s wise to take a careful look at what Sónar has to offer.
This edition’s Friday night highlights include Harlem rapper Rakim Mayers, aka A$AP Rocky, and Parisian electro duo Acid Arab, likely to premiere new tracks live. Floating Points will take control of Sónar Car with a 6-hour set, while the legendary Four Tet will set the rhythm till dawn with two hours of pure musical delight at Sonar Pub. Other big names on the evening include DJ Koze and classics like Underworld and Disclosure with a DJ set.
On Saturday, Amelie Lens will take over with her vibrant Antwerp techno, with other trendy headliners not to miss like Latin trap sensation Bad Bunny, Berlin-based producer Dixon, Kaytranada with his “bootleg voodoo”, American rapper Lil Uzi Vert – and the list goes on.
