Sonar 2010: ghosts and music

A couple of ghosts making the way of Saint James to find the end of the world and get in the land of the living people... what they have to do with electronic music? The answer is easy: the Sonar Festival. The unconventional film Finisterrae, written and directed by Sergio Caballero, is the image of the popular festival this year.

Sonar advanced music and multimedia art festival takes place in Barcelona every year during three days in June. Sonar’s diverse artistic offer splits between the Sonar by Day activities (in the CCCB and MACBA venues) and Sonar by Night (Fira Gran Via M2 L’Hospitalet), together with some simultaneous gigs like the performances at L’Auditori.At the last festival edition, more than 75,000 people enjoyed the fine selection of an artistic programme which combines the electronica headliners together with hundreds of emerging artists and DJ’s representing the most updated music and new media trends within electronic culture.

This event is the meeting point both for a worldwide audience looking for the newest, as well as the professionals, with their SonarPro.

The 2010 edition takes place on 17, 18 and 19 of June. The star guest this year is Roxy Music, who are visting the city after 30 years, with their only concert in Spain.

You can also enjoy the acting of New Young Pony Club, Aufgang, Post War Years, Caspa Fear, MC Rod Azlan and Cabo San Roque.
