Thousands of visitors flock to Barcelona every year to enjoy the city's richly cultural atmosphere. Holidaymakers taking a car hire in Spain can experience a different kind of culture at the Sonar Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art. The event will take place at a variety of venues throughout the city from June 14-16.
Now in its 19th year, Sonar has a tradition of braving new frontiers in music and art. The festival blends performances from some of today's most popular entertainers with cutting-edge visuals and technology to create an engaging and atmospheric experience. This year's event will feature acts such as New Order, deadmau5, Fatboy Slim, Amon Tobin and James Blake, to name a few.
A notable highlight of the event will be Masaki Batoh's Brain Pulse Music. Batoh, a founding member of Japanese experimental rock ensemble Ghost, uses a modified electrocardiogram machine to create music from the waveforms of brain waves. An intriguing blend of art and science, Batoh is sure to be one of the highlights of this year's event.
Visitors with an appreciation for eclectic and innovative music can take a car hire in Barcelona to experience Sonar for themselves.
