The best OFF Sónar parties 2018

Music, creativity & technology – Sónar is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary on 14-16 June in various venues of Barcelona. Next to this happening, many OFF Sónar events are organised by labels, promoters or artists: A more intimate and exclusive way to celebrate techno music in the Catalonian capital in June. This guide gives you an overview of the best parties in 2018.

This article is also available as podcast on Soundcloud and iTunes.

With hundreds of artists, performers and DJ’s divided over two locations, Sónar is a creative playground, fostering and encouraging new interactions between established artists, exciting newcomers and an open minded international audience. There are also smaller parties, the so called OFF Sónar events that are not that crowded and transfer a more intimate feeling to the techno community.
