This weekend: Sonar and midsummer

KubikNext weekend I’ll be in Berlin, neither in Sweden nor in Barcelona. Which is a shame because in Sweden they’ll be celebrating midsommar, the endless day and in Barcelona Sónar, the endless night. The multimedia and electronic music festival with acts like Beastie Boys, Justice or Devon starts today. Many people come to Barcelona, only for all the parties that surround Sónar without ever setting foot on the festival area. Especially the parties at the beach are famous and Sónar fills the chiringuitos with party people ever since we made a party there about four years ago (yes, that was actually not so common back then). And the Kubik concept spreads to Barcelona, opens this weekend.

Update: There’s a special midsommer celebration open air party going on for three days in a formy red army military base in Bernau, close to Berlin with many, many great electronic music acts organized by such infamous party crews like Pentagonik, Wir sind Park or Patentblau.: Check out the lineup, pictures and how to get there!

And here is a little impression of how it looks now: Michael Mayer on the beach for Sónar 2006
