Barcelona is the one of the best cities in Europe for music festivals hosting.
One of the most popular Festival in Barcelona is without any doubt the Sonar Festival. If you
visit the city in the middle of June you must buy the tickets and visit this amazing festival in
which you will find all sorts of weird stuff and particular products while listening to the best
musical groups and singers ever as the Pet Shop Boys, Skrillex, Paul Kalkbrenner and many
others! It’s a mix of art, technology and music, a perfect combination that takes place for three
long days and nights without stopping partying!
Go without saying that the biggest entertainment starts at night, the so called Sonar Night
which is apart from the Sonar Day, where a mix of pop and electronic music gets louder and
the party could prolong even until 8 in the morning!
