Two major entities in electronic music, Printworks and the iconic Sónar Festival, are teaming up to introduce a new stage at Sónar by Night on June 14th and 15th. The SonarLab X Printworks stage will present a jointly curated program that delves into the unique identities of both music brands. It will showcase an innovative lineup of live acts, artists, and DJs connected to both institutions. This inaugural collaboration will explore the audio and visual personas of these music powerhouses, creating a captivating convergence of creative minds.

A festival with a long-standing reputation as a pioneer and a game changer in electronic music, Sónar is recognized globally for consistently creating, innovating, and pushing the boundaries of musical exploration over three decades . Printworks has shown a commitment to crafting an audience-led experience that fuses unrivaled production, lighting and audiovisual elements in a way like no venue has done before. They have successfully built a cult community that has far extended outside of their original printing factory space. This joint effort will bring the essence of the venue to Spain for the first time, with a brand new format showcasing their emblematic AV production and artistic curation. Tickets are available via sonar.es

The billing showcases a range of artists, featuring live performances by Octave One, Sepehr, KI/KI, Cinthie, CASISDEAD, DJ Flight & MC Chickaboo, salute, Marie Montexier b2b Mor Elian, C.FRIM b2b BAMBII, JASSS, Swoose, and DJ TNTC at the event.

“For Printworks’ inaugural venture in Spain, we aimed to create a distinctive impact. Sónar Festival, renowned for its dedication to immersive performances—a value shared by Printworks and Broadwick Live—was the ideal partner. Excited about this debut collaboration, we anticipate echoing the venue’s essence during its transformation.” – Matthew Johnston, Broadwick Live

“The SonarLab X Printworks stage is an important next step in Sónar’s ongoing mission to platform quality innovations in electronic music and culture from around the world. We’ve long admired Broadwick Live’s attention to detail both in audiovisual production and curation with Printworks, and this collaboration allows us to bring the best of both worlds to the Sónar by Night audience. ” Ventura Barba – Advanced Music (Sónar)

Since its inception in February 2017, Printworks London by Broadwick has garnered a devoted following for showcasing pioneering cultural events. The venue, formerly the largest printing factory in Western Europe, retained its original charm—housing massive machines and printing presses—to fashion a striking industrial backdrop for its acclaimed music lineup and signature events. Now in the midst of redevelopment, Broadwick is gearing up for the next chapter of Printworks London, preserving its iconic Press Halls and other key elements. The forthcoming phase promises to make a substantial cultural impact on the capital upon its reopening.

The SonarLab X Printworks stage will be a key feature of the wider Sónar 2024 programme, built to highlight creativity across digital culture across all eras and disciplines. From dance music pioneers, contemporary icons and groundbreaking techno acts, and a renewed focus on radical aesthetics, Sónar aims to feature boundary pushing formats, and to platform of hyperlocal promoters and collectives from around the world.
