Check-in & accessHere you will find all the information to access the Sónar 2023 festival

Getting your wristband 


Before entering the festival, you’ll need to head to a check-in point to exchange your ticket (by showing the QR code) for your wristband


If you have a ticket for Sónar by Night, you can check-in at the Sónar by Day venue at Fira Montjuïc (where Sónar by Day takes place), saving you time when you head to Sónar by Night


Your wristband provides you access to the festival and will also be your only method of payment via the SonarCashless system. You can top up the balance on your wristband as many times as you like, both before and during the festival.


Important: You can only exchange your own ticket(s) for a wristband, we cannot allow you to pick up wristbands for friends when you check in. Remember to always make sure your wristband is visible once inside the festival.

Access for attendees with disabilities or reduced mobility


Sónar  has a clear commitment to all of our audience and is working every year on becoming an accessible, non-exclusionary festival. This work is ongoing, and we strive to improve with every edition. We have created a plan to achieve this goal based on an accessibility analysis which has highlighted the steps we need to take in order to continue improving accessibility.
