It’s getting closer and closer, and having seen the line-up we can say that this year is going to be great. One of the most important festivals of the summer is taking place on the 16, 17 and 18th of June. That’s right, Sónar Barcelona 2022 is back. From sundown to sunrise, from local to global artists and from underground to international stars. If you are into experimental, dance, techno, DJ sets and urban music, this is your place. But as always, Sónar is not just about the music, it’s also a platform for creativity and technology. If we tell you that Princess Nokia, The Blessed Madonna, The Blaze, Arca, C. Tangana or Nathy Peluso are only a few of the names on the list, you get the hype, right?
After two consecutive summers of cancellations due to the pandemic, the excitement is real. The activities are divided into two main locations: Sónar by Day will be held at the city’s Fira Montjuïc, with concerts, DJ sets, showcases at the new stage SónarPark by DICE and, to top it off, Sónar+D; the congress focused on giving space for creativity, technology and business to get together. And Sónar by Night will take place at Fira Gran Via L’Hospitalet, hosting live shows and DJ sets from the biggest names in music.

After C. Tangana cancelled his performance at the Primavera Sound because of his tight schedule, it’s good news to see that he’s one of the newest additions to this festival. The Argentinian Nathy Peluso will also be there with her singular mix of genres that go from rap to salsa. We’ll see rappers like El Bobe, Locoplaya or Morad, who puts out hit after hit. Bedroom pop is also very present with artists like Simona or the duo Rusowsky and Mori. The experimental and electronic Arca, MBODJ from Jokkoo, or urban artists like Juicy Bae, Chico Blanco and Ms Nina are other names that stand out from the local music scene. And the young talent Rojuu couldn’t be left out.

On an international scale, seeing the names of The Blesseed Madonna, Vegyn, LSDXOXO or Jayda G we can tell the DJ sets will be fire. After their huge success, Sónar is counting again on Princess Nokia and the rapper Tommy Cash. The multifaceted producers Sega Bodega and Coucou Chloe will also be there, both from record label Nuxxe. And experimental musicians like Serpentwithfeet or The Blaze are proof that the festival is a combination of the best avant-garde talents.

The list is endless, so make sure to check out for the complete line-up. All in all, everything points to this year being unforgettable so if you don’t want to miss a thing, you can get your tickets here.
