The popularity of Barcelona’s Sonar festival has spawned a whole annex of ‘off’ events all over the city during the festival weekend (16th-18th June).
Over the past few years house and electro labels have made sure that they host a party in one of Barcelona’s many clubs and venues transforming the city into a 4 day non-stop party, attracting aficionados from all over the world. For those of us who can’t make it this year (with a valid excuse) but don’t want to miss out on the musical mayhem, Awdio.com will be in town to stream some of the most exciting events in real time. It’s true that you won’t get the hot Spanish sun, the beach, the pan con tomate or the inexhaustible tattooed party people, but you will get the music, a lot of it, in real-time, leaving the rest to your imagination.
This year parties to stream include :
Tape feat. Alex Murak, Carola Pisaturo, Chris Carrier, Dan Ghenacia, Gwen Maze, Holmar Filipson, Jef K, Le loup & Seuil, Makam, Milton Jackson, Mindz Control Ultra aka Tiago Fragateiro & DJ Yellow, Paco, Shade, Spirit Catcher.

Can't make it to Detroit this year? Well, here's something that should console you: the entire official festival will be streamed online via Resident Advisor and on Awdio.com
With the help of media players powered by Awdio, the sounds of the iconic electronic music festival will be broadcast live around the world. Streams run from noon until midnight each day, and there will be separate streams for all five stages, so you can hear every last moment of the action at Hart Plaza, from DJ Harvey's opening set on Saturday to Flying Lotus's closer on Monday. You can take a look at the festival's schedule on RA to find out when everyone's playing (and remember to adjust for Detroit local time). The players will be embedded on the event listings below once the festival gets started and will of course also be available on Awdio.com. Just watch this space.
Just one thing to keep in mind: There's a chance some artists would rather keep their sets offline, so be prepared for some of them to opt out out of the streams.
