The 4th SonarSound Tokyo is maintaining its schedule and hopes both to contribute to the recovery of normal life in the Japanese capital, and to pay tribute to the victims of the recent catastrophe.
SonarSound Tokyo | Sonar 2011 Barcelona
Sonar, in agreement with Beatnik, its Japanese partner, has decided to go ahead with SonarSound Tokyo
. The close links between Sonar and Japan since the festival's early days have been vital in the decisions involved in managing the event at this delicate point in time. SonarSound Tokyo is a Japanese festival and in view of the country's efforts and desire to restore normality to life in Tokyo, Sonar feels that it should make a contribution by maintaining its scheduled dates. Sonar sincerely thanks you for your support and once again wish to pass on our deepest sympathy to all of those who have suffered or been affected by these tragic events.
On the basis that the festival should make a positive contribution for victims of the catastrophe, Sonar will be donating 25% of the money from tickets sold for Sonar Barcelona and Sonar Galicia between 23 March and 1 April to the Japanese Red Cross. We have also determined that profits from SonarSound Tokyo
will be donated and that we will be collecting donations from artists, venue, suppliers and guests.
