Fira de Barcelona, Barcelona
14 - 16 June

This year marked Sónar Festival’s 25th edition.

As you might expect from an event which lionises the cutting edge, Sónar remains vital and forward-facing. This year’s line-up was characteristically diverse,  featuring innovators, pioneers and breakthrough acts, from Yaeji to LCD Soundsystem. As our review stated, the 2018 edition was as much as statement of intent as much as it was a victory lap, with many of the best performances coming from artists making their Sónar debuts.

Barcelona-based photographer Nacho G Riaza was on hand to capture the vibe onsite and backstage. View his full gallery of images below.
