Sonar 2011

Sonar 2011


Da marzo a luglio sono 5 mesi, 5 lunghi mesi di preparazione fisica e uditoria prima dell’edizione di quest’anno del Sonar 2011, la tre giorni di musica che sconvolge la città di Barcellona alla sua 18° edizione…quest’anno è pure in vendita?
Il programma dell’evento, che si divide tra i ritmi danzerecci del Sónar by Day (amore a prima vista) all’interno del Centro di Cultura Contemporanea e il Museo di Arte Contemporanea nel cuore della città, e quelli della notte nei padiglioni chiusi e sugli stage aperti, a cui si aggiunto un nuovo stage, il SonarCar, del Hospitalet de Llobregat, è veramente ricco e strizza l’occhio come sempre a tante sonorità.

Tra i festival più all’avanguardia d’Europa, il Sonar di quest’anno che si svolgerà dal 16 al 18 giugno, anticipato dal Sonar Galicia a La Coruna (17 e 18 giugno) con alcuni ospiti uguali, vedrà nomi stranoti alla cultura electro come Boys Noize, A-Track, Underworld, M.I.A., Aphex Twin, Trentemoller tanto per citare quelli da hits. I meno noti, si fa per dire, non sono da meno e noi li andremo a cercare con cura. Parlo di Buraka Som Sistema, Hype Williams, Floating Points, Cut Copy, Janel Monae, Die Antwoord aspettando la conferma di altri nomi come Discodeine.
Dall’electro più spinta e noise a quella minimale e downtempo, il Sonar di quest’anno soddisfa ancora una volta tutti i viaggiatori nell’universo del beat. Noi ve lo consigliamo vivamente, avendolo vissuto sulla pelle, se volete iniziare le vacanze estive con stile aprendo la mente al futuro musicale.

Di seguito il programma del Sonar 2011. Nei prossimi mesi si avranno anche stage e orari così da preparavi il vostro Sonar Program il più completo possibile evitando di perdervi.

From March to July, five months, five long months of physical and hearers training before of the Sonar 2011, three days of music that shakes the city of Barcelona, this year at 18th edition.
The event, which is divided between the danceable rhythms of Sonar by Day (love at first sight) at the Centre for Contemporary Culture and the Museum of Contemporary Art in the heart of the city, and those of the night in the close on the open stage, which is added a new stage, the SonarCar, at Hospitalet de Llobregat, is really rich and winks, as always, so many sounds.
