Sonar

This music and multimedia festival has gained international recognition.

This music and multimedia festival has gained international recognition thanks to its forward-thinking programme that focuses mostly on electronic music – it’s a definite must for fans of this genre. As numerous different venues participate there is a multitude of performances to attend, and to give you an idea previous editions have featured artists of the calibre of Aphex Twin, Richie Hawtin, The Gaslamp Killer and Jeff Mills. There are also screenings of short films, mostly to do with music (such as Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys’ ‘Fight For Your Right Revisited’), interactive art exhibitions, and other terribly avant-garde activities. But mostly, it’s the music that draws people from all over the world, and has resulted in a spin-off version in the city of La Coruña in northern Spain.
