The annual Sónar Reykjavik music festival returns April 25-27, 2019 in Reykjavik’s famous Harpa Concert Hall to celebrate the intersection of music and technology. Not only do concert-goers get to experience this unique event, but they also might get the chance to see the northern lights! The festival falls during peak northern lights season in Iceland and Harpa’s unique glass structure gives visitors a great chance to spot the aurora from within the concert walls. The music combined with Iceland’s picturesque backdrop provides a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Sónar Reykjavik!
The festival focuses on new trends in dance, music and technology by inviting people to consider and imagine how creativity is capable of changing the future. Each event creates an intimate environment to enhance relationships between the audience and the art.
The concert line-up consists of both Icelandic and international artists and holds performances across four stages:
- The SonarClub and SonarHall stages will feature the festivals headliners including musicians such as Dawn, Little Dragon, and Octavian!
- The SonarComplex stage has teamed up with Red Bull Music Academy to showcase new, local and international artists such as Cherrie, ROKKY, and Little Simz!
- The SonarLab stage, located in Harpa’s basement car park, will be hosted by Resident Advisor. Unlike the other stages, this stage is a converted night club deep beneath the main stages. Performers will include Objekt, Avalon Emerson, Bruce b2b Árni, and more!
This festival gives concert goers a chance to not only enjoy music from their favorite artists, but also discover new talent in a unique and intimate setting. Tickets are sold on StubHub where you can purchase a three-day pass ( $145) or a VIP three-day pass ($225). Make sure to get your tickets before they sell out!
