Hivern Turns Ten
By Rich Jones
Founded by Oriol Riverola (John Talabot), Salva Coromina and Franc Sayol in 2008, Hivern Discs is a label at the forefront of A&R, art direction and cultivating Barcelona’s current musical landscape. To celebrate a decade in the game, the Hivern family are taking over Vila Habana, a 20,000 ft2 (1,900 m2) neoclassical mansion in the Castellbisbal countryside to throw a 14-hour musical showcase with an uninterrupted schedule from 4pm to 6am.
The lineup for the event represents the broad spectrum of artists who make up the Hivern roster including, Alicia Carrera, Aleksi Perälä, As Longitude (live), Benedikt Frey, Cleveland, C.P.I., Daniel Baughman, John Talabot, JMII, Khidja, Mistakes Are Ok, Oceanic, The Pilotwings and Sapphire Slows. Esteemed selectors Inga Mauer and Ben UFO will share the main stage for a four-hour back2back to close out the celebrations.
