Sónar 2024 Report

More than 150,000 revellers from countries across the globe experienced Sónar in Barcelona from Thursday, June 13th to Saturday, June 15th. Under the slogan of 'the frequency of now', this year's event had some familiar names returning with new shows such as Air, Chartlotte De Witte, Folamour, Laurent Garnier, Paul Kalkbrenner, and Reinier Zonneveld, but it was the acts breaking onto the big stages for the first time or making their debuts that impressed us the most.   Mike Barnard was there for Sónar by Day and Sónar by Night to see acts as diverse as Jessie Ware, Surgeon & Speedy J, Stacey Hotwaxx Hale b2b DJ Paulette, Olof Dreijer & Diva Cruz, Salute, emptyset, Ela Minus, ¥ØU$UK€ ¥UK1MAT$U, and Marie Montexier b2b Mor Elian. This year's mantra for Sónar was 'the frequency of now'. Thursday After a huge storm hit Barcelona the evening before Sónar started, we were relieved to see the weather forecast return to warm and sunny for the rest of the week.
