An unprecedented music listening experience: six hours playing vinyl, all three days of Sónar by Day
One of this year’s highlights is DESPACIO powered by McIntosh, a new concept of a listening experience that brings together James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem / DFA) and 2manydjs to focus their finely honed skills on partygoers’ experience through a meticulously chosen selection of music and spectacular-quality high-fidelity sound. On all three days of Sónar by Day, James Murphy and 2manydjs will be playing vinyl records from their own collections for six hours (from 3.30 pm to 9.30 pm) in a specially designed space featuring a circle of seven speaker stacks as part of a one-of-a-kind 50,000 W sound system. Since space is limited, admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
All tickets for Sonar by Day and Sonar by Night are on sale now, as well as 2-Night tickets and the Sónar Pass. Professional Accreditations are available at a special price until 30 March. More info here.
