The extraordinary club experience that is DESPACIO will be the core of the celebrations of the 25th anniversary at Sónarby Day, with James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) and brothers David and Stephen Dewaele (2manydjs/Soulwax) behind the decks. Together they will bring their high fidelity sound -with a spectacular soundsystem formed by 7 towers of circularly arranged speakers and amplifiers – to its maximum level with three, 6 hour DJ sets -one per day andstrictly vinyl only– where the music and the audience will take precedence over ego. 2manydjs, the Belgian brothers who over the years have been responsible for many of the festivals high points, will also be the stars of Saturday with one of their inimitable DJ sets of twisted, mixed, hits which will close Sónar by Day.
