When will Sónar Festival Barcelona take place?
The 2022 edition of Sónar Barcelona will be its 29th, and the dates on which it takes place will be the same as other years, right after Primavera Sound. The event will be on June 16, 17 and 18.
The location that was chosen for the festival is the Fira Montjüic and the Fira Gran Vía. And if this is the first time you will be visiting Sónar, please be aware that there is no camping on or near the event. Sónar Barcelona is a city festival, and this means that accommodation for festival goers needs to be arranged in a different way.
So if you are contemplating attending Sónar Barcelona, or if you already have your tickets, please start organizing your trip to the city. You can find a holiday rental, which will be ideal if you want to stay together with a group of friends. If you have been to other music festivals, you already know the importance of convenient accommodation. You need it to sleep, recharge your battery, and then make the most of every day you spend in the city.

Sónar+D: a hybrid festival
The organisation of Sónar Barcelona is always looking for ways to innovate, and 2022 will be the first time for Sónar+D. It will take place at Palau the Congresos. There will be lectures, visual exhibitions and, don't forget, musical performances to enjoy. The second fun part of Sónar+D will be its science and technology space, all related to music.
Besides everything Sónar Barcelona 2022 has to offer, there is more than just this festival in the city for you to experience. If you plan your trip well, you will have time to soak up the atmosphere on one of Barcelona's roof top terraces to admire the splendid view.
