From June 14 to June 16, Sonar Festival is bringing festival-goers an extraordinary experience. Other summer festivals, what makes Sonar unique.
We’re talking about the best festivals that have happened and you can still catch in June! We have five major events to talk about!
It’s time to fly to Barcelona for Sonar Music Festival this 2018!
From June 14 to June 16, Sonar Festival is bringing festival-goers an extraordinary experience. In contrast to many other summer festivals, what makes Sonar unique is that it’s a city festival. So you can truly experience Barcelona with two different sites – one for the day, Sonar by Day, which is in the city centre, and one for at night, Sonar by Night, which is further in town!
I’m sure you wanna hear about the artists, so here they are! For the Thursday show by day, you can catch names like Laurent Plays Garnier, Agoria Live, Yaeji, George Fitzgerald Live, Little Simz, and Oscar Mulero – Monochrome, to name a few! For Friday by day, there’s Diplo presents (Mr Eazi, Distruction Boyz, Kampire, Diplo), Black Coffee, and Olafur Arnalds. Then, Saturday by Day features DJ Set “2ManyDJs” along with numerous other names!

Moving on to one of the most scenic events of the year, specifically because it takes place in Reykjavik, Iceland. Let’s talk about Secret Solstice 2018!
On June 21 to June 24, the beautiful location Laugardalur will be hosting Secret Solstice 2018, the Icelandic music festival already on its fourth year. This festival features both established artists as well as upcoming DJs for 24 hours in a span of four days. It’s described as “one of the most unique events in the world!” With that, their theme this year is Norse religion and mythology of old!
Some of the names to catch? Headlining are DJs Stormzy, and Gucci Mane! But, Bonnie Tyler, Clean Bandit, Steve Aoki, Death From Above, and many other names will all be there!

This festival has been running for the past five years in Zrce, Croatia. This year, it’s on-going from June 26-June 29! One of their note-worthy features? Their jampacked lineup!
Some of the artists on the main lineup include AJ Tracey, Andy C, Apollonia, Alan Fitzpatrick, Chase & Status, and Eats Everything! They also have a boat party lineup that is hosted by partners like Do Not Sleep, Horse Meat Disco, and Metropolis!
