Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the annual summer Sónar festival in Barcelona didn’t take place this year – but fans can now enjoy the free Sónar+D CCCB online event over the next two days (18-19 September) instead.
At Sonarplusd.com, Sónar has become an audiovisual online platform, broadcasting its full programme live across two channels – and with exclusive on-demand content. The event will be broadcast over two days from 10:30am until 2am.
Sónar+D CCCB will be highlighting local talent and creativity, with more than 70 artists and speakers from Barcelona at the forefront of the festival.
The full programme includes premieres and exclusive shows filmed for the occasion from Max Cooper, Arca, MariaArnal i Marcel Bagés, Ryoji Ikeda, Nicola Cruz, Morad, Ms Nina, Niño de Elche.
There’s also an exclusive talk between Holly Herndon, Richie Hawtin and Mat Dryhurst, and unique collaborations for the event, such as those between Alba G. Corral & Carles Viarnès, and John Talabot & Desilence, among others.
These contents will co-exist with a live programme of conferences, with topics such as environmental awareness and the links between art and science, highlighted throughout.
With the addition of 12hr live DJ sets, broadcasting from Torre d’Alta Mar, Sónar CCCB takes the form of a hybrid, virtual event, to which everyone is invited.
The event is free to watch but viewers will need to register. You can also find the full schedule here.
