Why: Often thought of as the ‘thinking persons’ dance festival, Sonar’s alternative name is the International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art, which should give you some idea of the intellectual crowd it attracts. The festival spreads across the entire city so book into OneOcean Port Vell marina early to get a prime position for the art installations, family events and lectures which take place alongside sets from some of the best artists in dance. Port Vell can host superyachts up to 160 metres.
