Sónar Barcelona


The edition of Sónar Barcelona scheduled for next June is postponed and this year's edition, which promises to be historic, will be held from June 16 to 18, 2022. Mobility restrictions and the lack of regulations that regulate the organization of large events makes the celebration of the festival unfeasible. However, Sónar is still running, and from October 27 to 30, 2021 it will present two new festivals in Barcelona, ​​in addition to expanding its activity throughout the year. Sónar will organize for the first time in Barcelona the AI ​​and Music Festival, an event dedicated to artificial intelligence in music creation, promoted by the S + T + ARTS program of the European Commission and in association with UPC and betevé. This new festival will coexist with SónarCCCB, in an extended, face-to-face and more musical version, with different live music stages, conferences, workshops and Sónar +D presentations. In total there will be more than 60 activities in hybrid format, although mainly in person.
