SONICA Festival is an annual music festival that covers diverse trends in contemporary music and sonic arts.

SONICA is the Ljubljana festival with the longest tradition in the field of exploratory electronic music and sound art, merging these forms with visual and intermedia art and placing them in different contexts.

SONICA is a platform based on close collaborations with artists operating at the crossroads of visual art, media, sound art and research. Consisting of production and research residencies, exhibitions, performances and public interventions, it puts great emphasis on public presentations and talks. In this sense, it is located internationally, but with a clear focus on its regional position, leaning towards the east.

Apart from the annual edition in Ljubljana, SONICA has organised editions in several cities, such as London, Wroclaw, Trieste, Venice, Wien, Berlin, Zagreb and Belgrade.

Since 2009 SONICA has presented artists including William Basinski, Marina Rosenfeld, Tim Hecker, Aisha Devi, Clark, Actress, Patten, Alessandro Cortini, Shackleton, Innode, Rashad Becker, Emptyset, Herman Kolgen, Ryoichi Kurokawa, Plaid, Byetone, Lee Gamble, Giant Swan, Jenna Sutela, Ziúr, Flanger, Atom™, Fennesz, Zimoun, SND, Nik Nowak, Tomoko Sauvage, Lucy Railton, Jan Jelinek, and many others.
