Sónar+D is the international conference for creativity and technology, designed to promote talent and business opportunities in the digital culture environment.
Sónar+D is held in Barcelona together with Sónar by Day at the Palau de Congressos in Fira Montjuïc. It brings together experts from around the world (technologists, entrepreneurs, artists, companies and researchers) to present and transmit initiatives and tools that will help to shape future creative experiences in the areas of music, image, interactive content, and transmedia platforms.
During the past 15 years, we’ve been trying to define what OFFF really represents. OFFF has proudly joined artists such as Joshua Davis, Stefan Sagmeister, John Maeda, Neville Brody, Kyle Cooper, The Mill, Digital Kitchen, Ben Fry & Casey Reas, Golan Levin, Chris Milk, Rob Chiu, Julien Vallée, Paula Scher, Rick Poynor, Erik Spiekermann, Dvein, Erik Natzke, Casey Neistat and the list goes on. It is more than just a Festival hosting innovative and international speakers, it is more than a meeting point for all talents around the world to collaborate, it is more than feeding the future.
OFFF is a community inviting all those who are eager to learn to participate and get inspired in a three-day journey of conferences, workshops, activities and performances. What is it about exactly? It’s a combination of Offline/Online designers, Motion Designers, Thinkers, Sound Designers, Graphic Designers, Theorists, Developers, Professionals, Students… Putting the titles aside, OFFF is made for the curious.
OFFF takes place in Barcelona annually while it tours the world as OFFF on Tour for the rest of the year.
