Sonar Preview

Jon Freer June 13th, 2010

I will be covering the Sonar festival in Barcelona for R4NT. It takes place between the 17th and 19th of June 2010 at cool venues in the city. Sonar by Day is a mellow affair that takes place in the arty environs of CCB/MACBA and will feature the likes of Broadcast, Delorean and Moodymann. Sonar by Night takes place at a venue outside the centre of Barcelona and choice acts will include LCD Soundsystem, Joy Orbison and Roxy Music. As well as the music, there’s art and cinema to keep vistors occupied.

There’s also a host of  ‘Off Sonar’ events featuring a number of electronic music greats, with beach parties, musical cruises, rooftop soirees and various events at ‘normal’ clubs all on offer. Potential highlights include label showcases from the likes of Bpitch Control and Claque Musique, a combined DJ and live set from Detroit legend Robert Hood and a Secret Villa party.

I will be reporting back via this blog at various stages over the long Sonar weekend.
