It’s a City Festival

There will be no field where people will be camping, no it is a city festival! So you have to look for an accommodation in Barcelona. Enjoy Apartments offers apartments close to the festival and/of in the center of the city. In the middle of the city, very useful! Because Sonar by Day is in the middle of the center. Sonar by Night is somewhere further out the city.

It is more difficult to get to Sonar by Night, than to get to Sonar by Day. You will see considerable much party people in the city and they will have the struggle to get a taxi or take a bus that will bring them to the location further out the city. Sonar by Night is in Fira Gran Via, one of the outskirts of Barcelona.
