Behind The Scenes At Sónar 2014

Sónar is the world’s unrivalled festival of electronic music, digital technology and commerce. More than a year of planning goes into creating the three-day event, which features 150 concerts and DJ sessions along with demonstrations, talks and workshops on various aspects of new media art – the part of the festival called Sonar+D.  

We talk with some of the key figures – organisers and artists – who create an experience that is as stimulating to the brain as it is to the body.
