If there is one festival which keeps getting better and better every year, it is Sónar. This year it is going to celebrate it’s twentieth anniversary with another great line-up of the best DJs, groups and producers both past and present playing live in front of more than 90,000 people over three days in Barcelona on the 13, 14 and 15 of June.
Sónar 2013 kicks off on Thursday the 13th with Sónar Day, this year the green grass of Macba has moved locations to the Feria in Plaza Espanya. A move not without controversy amongst some long time Sónar regulars, who prefer the intimate and familiar surroundings of Macba to the open more impersonal spaces of the proposed new space. Following the inaugural day of action Sónar officially gets underway with the inaugural concert by British duo the Pet Shop Boys on the Thursday night.
What follows is two full days of the best electronic music in two great locations, the new Sónar Day location and the existing Sónar Night locations. Once again the organisers have outdone themselves for this special 20th edition of Sónar. They have managed to attract not only some of the biggest names in the electronic music industry but also some of the pioneers. Apart from the aforementioned Pet Shop Boys, electronic music geniuses and one of the most influential names in the music industry, Kraftwerk will be bringing their new show 3-D to Sónar 2013. Other artists appearing at Sónar 2103 are Skrillex, Richie Hawtin, Two Door Cinema Club, Laurent Garnier, Jamie Lidell, Hot Chip and Gold Panda. For full listing of all Concerts and DJs click here.
It promises to be one of the best editions of ever. Will we see you there?
