Hostal Mare Nostrum has the honor to announce SONAR 2010 in Barcelona.
SONAR is the festival of avant-garde music and multimedia art that takes place in Barcelona in mid-June since 1994. And it's one of the most important in Europe.
This year the festival has five thousand euros over budget ( 3,700,000 in total ) that will be used to bring The Chemical Brothers, Air, LCD Soundsystem and Jónsi (Sigur Ros) to present their latest works among the 180 artists who will attend this event which combines the biggest names in the current musical trends and new media and this year will focus on the British music scene, with more than 30 artists scheduled. In the latest edition of the festival more than 75 thousand people attended this dazzling spectacle.
Sonar Kids is the children's version of the festival which offers creative activities and experiences for the whole family. This year is doubled to two days activities and will be the previous weekend, 12th and 13th of June.
The cover image this year is a frame from a film shot before having the script, in which a pair of ghosts, tired of wandering, they decide to retire to Finisterre to disappear riding a horse and with a botafumeiro.
