Even a flying visit provides plenty to get your teeth into

Local Catalan band Bradien hold their own among the international avant gardeSónar / Advanced Music S.L.

In retrospect, deciding on a quick in-and-out trip to the Sónar festival was a slightly silly idea. Not because there was any problem with the event, or with getting there, or because I had any difficulty chucking an all-nighter then making it to my plane at 11am, though. Quite the opposite: it was a silly idea because a small taster of one of the best-organised music festivals I have ever been to could only make me deeply hacked off that I wasn't going to be there for the whole thing.

Fantastic review. Couldn't have put it better myself how perfectly organised the festival is. The only thing which is enraging is that you wake up every morning gutted about what you missed the night before - only because you were attempting to see all of something equally as good.
