Sonar Barcelona – Off Week 2018

Summer is just around the corner, this year we are heading back to our beloved Barcelona to enjoy another Off Week between June 11 to 17, as usual, we’ll be dancing in Rooftops, Beaches, Terrazas, Monasteries, Record Stores, Skateparks, Country-side villas, and nightclubs too.

Sonar Festival

The largest and better-known event of the week, let’s think of this one as the “main stage”.

Tickets are at around €58 for the Day, €79 Night and €280 for the full pass general entry (tickets at the entrance are €10 extra).  if it’s your first time going to this music week in Barcelona then you should definitely experience Sonar by Day and a Sonar by Night at least once, it’s totally worth it!

Check out the Day and Night program here

My recommendation for House and Techno followers is Saturday night, some of the confirmed artists are: Ben Klock, Dj Nobu, Charlotte de WitteErrorsmith, John Talabot Laurent GarnierLCD SoundsystemMotor City Drum Ensemble, Jeremy Underground and more!

The venue: Fira Gran Via L’Hospitalet

Off Week 

While the Sonar Festival tends to steal most of the media spotlight, there are actually many more other events of all shapes and sizes happening around town during the same week.

The underground music scene is thriving in Barcelona and you’ll be amazed by the variety of music and venues that you can choose to experience. This year is a bit different comparing with past years editions.  Most of the tickets to Off-week events are already at the 3rd or 4th release and for the most popular events, you should expect to pay €50 or more.

Here’s a list of my recommended events per day, but make sure to check the full list on the official off party facebook page or by visiting their web app
