This weekend we were at the legendary Sonar Festival in one of our favorite European cities, Barcelona. Founded 18 years ago, Sonar was the first ever daytime contemporary music festival in a European city and despite its renowned status, it’s avoided slipping into mainstream territory by continuing to showcase fresh talent.
Taking place across three days and two nights, the first thing that struck us was Sonar’s ability to coordinate such a multitude of electronic acts, hosted at two very different settings without overstepping the vibe at each spot. The 12 til 9 daytime event is a super chilled affair taking place at Barcelona’s beautiful cultural centre, just a stones throw from the Ramblas. By contrast, the 10pm til 7am night event was a rager at Fira Gran Via, a convention centre on the outskirts west of the city. While we’d love to cover every highlight from the weekend, there were just too many great moments, so instead we’ll bring you a varied shortlist of what made us tick:
On June 23rd, Goldenvoice will be hosting one of LA’s finest avant-garde bass-heavy DJs, Flying Lotus, at The Music Box in Hollywood. His psychedelic, jazz, and hip-hop influenced style make for an engaging listening experience and a live performance that is unparalleled in creativity and energy. It’s been a while since he last played in LA, so this is your chance to get down with Cosmogramma mastermind. FlyLo will be supported by openers Thundercat, Austin Peralta, Teebs and Strangeloop himself. Get your tickets here and be ready for a night with the bass heavy beats you know and love!
Stay tuned to the GDD Facebook for a ticket giveaway on Friday!
