Electronic party present:
Victor Martinez (Psycoskunk recordings)
Electronic Party borns with the clear objective of approaching the public the most interesting musical proposals of artists that are difficult to be seen at the actual night circuit, shaping itself as an authentic club in which a tribute to the dance electronic music with capital letters handed by the most outstanding “gurus” of this musical field will be done every single night .
Sonar is one of the biggest festivals in Barcelona. To celebrate this, Generator Barcelona is having a night of electric beats performed by Victor Martinez and Dalida.
Every year for 20 years Barcelona has played host to Sonar, a pioneering international festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art. Each year Sonar is host to more than 80000 people from more then 90 countries around the world bringing together 3500 collaborating professionals and 1000 journalists. http://www.sonar.es/
This is, however, not where the story ends. Due to the immense popularity and talent in the city there is a whole range of Sonar off parties. These predominantly consist of smaller labels and artists hosting pop up installations and parties.
In the words of Stripped Back Travel “Sonar Off consists of the main players in the electronic music industry taking the city into their own hands and putting on label parties in venues far, wide, and wonderful. This provides you disco dancers and rebel ravers with the opportunity to hand weave your own festival, taking into consideration the labels and artists you want to hear.”
Generator Barcelona could never miss out on this opportunity. We are hosting our own Sonar off.
When: 22nd May – 14th June
