Snar Barcelona have announced they’ll be bringing the DESPACIO soundsystem – James Murphy and 2manydjs in case you didn’t already know – to every day at the by day part of the festival.
Spread across the 3 days of the festival it’ll be 3 non-stop 6-hour sessions during the festivals three days at Snar by Day, in an exclusively designed space, with a maximum capacity of 1,200 people.
James, David & Stephen Dewale will be behind the decks, located in a dark and obscured background, for three daily six-hour sessions from 3:30pm to 9:30pm throughout the festival. Due to the capacity limitations of the space, access will be managed on a first-come, first-served basis.
DESPACIO: Powered by McIntosh is a one-of-a-kind sound system created by LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy and prestigious New York sound engineer John Klett of Tech Mecca.
“A statement intended to preserve, promote and celebrate the tradition of pure live music performances. The focus is on the partygoers experience instead of the stage spectacle that has become so commonplace in music today.”
The sound system consists of a floor-standing series of seven giant, 11-foot stacks arranged in a circle allowing the crowd to fully immerse themselves in the music. The setup is quite simple considering the 50,000 watts of McIntosh power behind the system.
Separate tickets for Sonar by Day and Sonar by Night are now on sale.
2-Night Ticket and the Sonar Pass are also available. The Professional Accreditations can be purchased at a reduced price until 30th of March.
