And it was Sonar

Between the 14th and the 16th of June, in Barcelona, Spain, took place one of the biggest festivals of electronic music and multimedia arts, Sonar. With a tradition starting from 1997, Sonar is the kind of festival that brings together different music styles and also different kinds of art. Beat Factor took part to this year's edition and this is what happened there.

With an intense night life, Barcelona seems to be the ideal place for partying and socializing, during the whole week, not only in week-ends. One of the urban attractions you will find all over the place in Barcelona will definitely be the graffiti walls.

Who thought that Sonar means only electronic music was completely wrong. There were also rock bands or ambient who played mostly at Sonar by Day. The festival had three different phases. On Thursday was the first day of Sonar, followed at night by the opening concert with Beastie Boys and Narod Niki. On Friday, it was the second Sonar Day, and in the evening the first Sonar By Night. And finally, Saturday was the last day of Sonar. This festival meant, musically speaking, almost all that you could imagine: rock, hardcore, techno, house, minimal, breaks, pop, punk, ambient, experimental, hip hop...
