Sónar is the 3 days and 2 nights International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art that takes place at various venues in Barcelona (Spain) in the third week of June since 1994. It's first class reputation as a leading reference for international festivals is by virtue of a carefully balanced cultural offering, combining a playful nature, the avant-garde, and experimentation with electronic dance music's newest trends.

Sónar activities are divided into two main locations: the recently premiered Sónar by Day, located from 2013 in Fira Montjuïc, with concerts and dj's, showcases as well as the new Sónar+D, the professional activities areas; and the larger shows at Sónar by Night, in Fira Gran Via de L'Hospitalet, where the leading names in the current international music scene are staged.
Sónar's founding values have defined the festival since its inception: the link between creativity and technology, its commitment to being a global event and a meeting point for creative people from both public and industry sectors, from different disciplines and communities.
