Sónar officially describes itself as the Barcelona International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art, and every year it receives more than 80,000 visitors from all over the world.
It is split into Sónar by Day (concerts, showcases, professional area, etc.) and Sónar by Night (where the headline acts perform), with activities taking place in different venues across the city. Depending on the time, they are held at the CCCB and the MACBA (by day) and at the L’Auditori and Fira Gran Via (L’Hospitalet) venues at night.
It offers crowds more than their money’s worth every year, with a superb programme combining the biggest names on the contemporary electronic music scene with an extensive line-up of emerging artists, DJs and musical trendsetters.

Midsummer’s Eve, known in Barcelona as the Revetlla de Sant Joan ("St. John’s Eve") or nit del foc ("night of "fire") is a festival celebrating the official start of summer. Celebrations around these dates date back to ancient times and are held across Europe, although they are particularly prevalent in Spain, Portugal (Fogueiras de São João), Norway (Jonsok), Denmark (Sankthans), Sweden (Midsommar), Finland (Juhannus) and the UK (Midsummer), with each region having its own traditions.
In Barcelona it is a lively, festive occasion when people have fun out on the streets and stay on the beach until the break of dawn. There is no specific venue where the celebration takes place, although most people head down to the beach, where special bars are set up and the usual chiringuitos (beach bars) crank up the volume of their music. There are also DJ sets and concerts all over the place, bonfires on the beach and fireworks to kick off the night.
Stuff goes on for the festival all over the city, where street parties are held and people throw firecrackers and bangers aplenty.
This is a truly magical experience in Barcelona and, as one of the biggest celebrations of the year, it has the city swinging all night long.
If you’re visiting Barcelona at this time of the year, we invite you to book your accommodation at Melon District, where you’ll get better value for money than at a regular hotel or hostel.
