This year Sonar by day was divided into the following sections:
Concerts and DJ’s, with four different stages: the CCCB Hall in the heart of the museum; the SonarVillage, the museum’s open air courtyard carpeted with astroturf (artificial grass); the SonarLab, a marquee with deck chairs, and SonarMacba, in the Capilla dels Angels, the chapel adjacent to the CCCB.
SonarMatica, this year’s exhibition “Invisible London” features the work of some of the most innovative artists of the British capital, whose use of new technologies is either an element or an integral part of their work.
SonarCinema, with a selection of works in which the strong relation between image, electronic music and technology was the common denominator. Videos, documentaries, short films, and more.
Sonar.ya.com, a marquee where you can enjoy the festival’s on-line version.
SonarPro, the top floor of the CCCB that caters for more than 60 stands: record labels, publications, distributors, and so on.
Sonar a la Carta, documentation and consulting area. Music, videos and interactive games.
Conferences and debates.
Sonar by night was divided into four areas:
SonarClub, the main venue with a capacity of more than 7,000 people.
SonarPub, open air. Dedicated to house, down-tempo, trip-hop, etc.
SonarPark, experimental sounds.
SonarCar, the usual dodgems (bumper cars).
Two days before the beginning of the festival, Levi’s organised a private party in collaboration with Sonar organization. Roni Size / Reprazent, Zero7, Angel Molina, Dj. Kosmos and Dj Omar, were there to entertain the audience. Ben Vine was on the scene to tell us all about it.
