Sonar festival now on in BarcelonaHostel-staying travelers in Barcelona can make their way to the Sonar festival to experience the very latest technological innovations in music and art.

Now in its 16th year, the festival provides a platform for the latest and most experimental forms of electronic music.

Beginning on 18th June 2009 and continuing until 20th June 2009, the DJ and live music performance is held during the day at the Centre of Contemporary Culture (CCCB) and the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA).

During the night the cutting-edge sounds move to the Calle Botanica with headlining acts including the pioneers of electronica Orbital, as well as the larger than life Grace Jones.

Animal Collective, Fever Ray, Institut Fatima and Cardopusher are also some of the highlights of the high-octane music event.

Backpackers can also spend some time visiting the sights and attractions in Barcelona, including Gaudi's Sagrada Familia and the gothic quarter, which is a warren of narrow streets with quirky shops and cafes.
