Carrer Notariat

Hey, where did those stalls come from at the end of my street? Ah, of course! It’s Sónartime!!  Every year, during the second half of the month of June, a cheerful Sónar vibe takes over the neighborhood for a couple of days…

Shopkeepers put out stalls with their goods in front of (or close to) their shops in an attempt to attract custom from the many people who attend Sónar by Day, creating a lively and festival-like atmosphere in the streets surrounding the Cute Suite.

People from all over the world (as well as lots of locals) flock to the area around the MACBA where the daytime concerts and DJ sessions take place.

Some will have bought their tickets online previously – for others, all that remains is to wait in the queue to get theirs…

With the huge amount of acts on scheduled at the various venues, the prices of the tickets seem very reasonable. But if you can’t afford to go, or should tickets be sold out already, then surely people watching is an inexpensive and fun alternative…
