Digital Culture: Virtual Reality and New Media Arts at Music Festival in Hong Kong

Sonar Hong Kong to focus on new innovations in the music industry

Sónar, originally from Barcelona, is holding its very first edition in Hong Kong and has released an exciting line-up of top-notch acts, DJs as well as extensive programming in its creative technology segment.

Sónar+D, as part of the Sonar Hong Kong one-day music festival, will be hosting some new age workshop, talks and interactive activities curated to challenge the relationship between new innovation, technology, sound and commerce at Hong Kong Science Park in Shatin, New Territories.

With Asia’s growing interest in the digital culture and new innovation, this event set a precedent as opportunity for the creative communities to network and exchange ideas while experiencing some of Sónar’s riveting programming.
