Sónar is the premiere electronic music and multimedia art festival held in the heart of Barcelona for three days every June. Last year, more than 80 thousand people enjoyed a musical line-up that combined major names in today's electronic music scene with a strong focus on experimental programming. Sónar is a meeting point for fans from all over the world eager for new ideas and for professionals, who find that the festival atmosphere is the ideal place to display their products and make contacts.
