Sónar finds second home


Sónar – one of the world’s leading electronic music festivals – will branch out from its Barcelona home next year.

The 2010 festival will be take place simultaneously in Barcelona and A Coruña, the first time in its history that it has been held in two locations.

The A Coruña event, dubbed Sónar Galicia, will have a Sónar by Day with a music line-up, and a multimedia and audiovisual area with a special emphasis on Galician artists. The Sónar by Night stages will feature the latest leading lights in electronica.

The image of Sónar 2010 – to be held June 17-19 – will be “a journey to the end of the world along the Way of St. James”.

The image is associated with Galicia and takes the form of a full-length film. The film is entitled ‘Finisterre’, and includes six chapters and an epilogue. It looks at the introspective journey undertaken by two ghosts who during Sónar 2009 decided to travel along the Way of Saint James to the end of the world. Once they arrive, they begin a fleeting new period on earth.
