Win VIP passes to Sónar Barcelona!

Just answer the simple question below - Mon 30 Apr

Returning to Barcelona for its 25th year, this year's line-up for the Sónar festival is, as usual, a sparkling selection from across the electronic music spectrum. Highlights include Thom Yorke, LCD Soundsystem, IAMDDB, and the rarely-spotted Despacio soundsystem from 2manydjs and James Murphy, but the programme features a huge range of acts across its three days (14-16 Jun). 

To celebrate 25 years of Sónar, we've teamed up with festival organisers to offer you the chance to win a pair of VIP passes for this year's festival, allowing entrance to the full By Day and By Night programmes of the festival. To be in with a chance of winning, just answer the following question:
