A homecoming for a global idol

When she debuted at Sónar in 2017 and went to Reykjavik with the festival in 2018, the prophecy was already starting to become a reality. Alba Farelo was going to have a meteoric career ahead of her. A career that, in 2023, has taken off completely. Bad Gyal is an icon for an entire generation. A global idol who has taken her passion for dancehall and dembow into the realm of Latin trap and beyond, touring Europe, Asia and the Americas. Capable of selling out concerts for over 15,000 people, for the 30th anniversary of Sónar she’ll give her umpteenth huge performance, featuring plenty of tracks from her imminent debut album. This time she’ll do so at home, and, for the first time, at Sónar by Night.
