What is Sónar+D
Sónar+D represents the evolution of the festival's professional and new media areas, which presents a series of activities based around the same central theme: making the relationship between creativity, technology, mobility, innovation and business more visible and accessible.

We close this first Sónar+D with 2.950 accredited professionals, 17% more than last year, from 57 countries and more than 1.300 companies involved.

Sónar 2013 brings together more than 121.000 visitors from 102 countries in Barcelona, a record in the festival's history.  In its 20th Anniversary year, Sónar makes a qualitative leap with the debut of the new venue for Sónar by Day at Fira Montjuïc, with 42.000 attendees.

45% of assistants is national and 55% is international public. The most represented countries are UK, France and Italy, but there has been a representative growth of visitors from USA, Australia and Russia which are among the top 10 countries of origin.
In collaboration with the Mobile World Capital, Sónar has become a privileged platform to bring this universe to the traditional public of the festival, delivering outstanding examples of how mobile technologies are able to contribute to creation.

The contents present through the nine Sónar+D's sections, contributed to the networking between the public and Market Lab's participants, made that more than a thousand people attended the 13 conferences of the festival and 216 meetings between innovation specialists and professionals accreditation holders were done at Meet The Expert.

Meanwhile, the Music Hack Day involved 24 companies and more than 100 hackers coming from all over the world. After 24 frantic marathon hours, they left to the community the 50 most innovative musical hack.

The interest generated by this Sónar's new section wouldn't have been possible without the support of companies and institutions such as Music Technology Group of the UPF, Google or Berklee College of Music, among others.
