The annual Vila Habana weekender will celebrate Life and Death’s 10 year anniversary
Friday, June 19 - Saturday, June 20 3 PM - 6 AM
Life and Death has spent the last ten years releasing soulful dance music helmed by a post-rock aesthetic, and label head DJ Tennis will celebrate this decade milestone alongside his imprint cohorts with a marathon weekender at Barcelona’s Vila Habana.
The fourth annual Life and Death Vila Habana bacchanal will take place Friday, June 19 - Saturday, 20, 2020, at the Colonial Neoclassical estate that dates back to 1935. The lineup boasts a kaleidoscopic smattering of house and techno juggernauts, with the first wave of artists revealed today including the Spanish debut of Redrago, DJ Tennis’ collaborative side project with Red Axes, as well as exclusive performances from Dj Nobu, Hunee, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Optimo and Dj Tennis himself.
Imprint veterans John Talabot, Roman Flugel, Henrik Schwarz, Margie and Simone De Kunovich will showcase the eclectic, experimental sounds that have cemented Life and Death as a curatorial force, while acts like Lena Willikens, Sadar Bahar, Awesome Tapes From Africa and CC:DISCO will make their Life and Death debut and soundtrack hours of far-flung, shape-shifting beats.
Life and Death’s yearly Vila Habana saturnalia has become the stuff of legend, situated on the historic property that overlooks 20,000 square miles of lush gardens, welcoming revelers to escape Barcelona’s unrelenting bustle and bask in the estate’s idyllic oasis. This year, the side stage will transform into a full-fledged production, and offer denizens even more opportunities to indulge in the label’s left-field soundscapes. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase Life and Death’s limited-edition 10 year anniversary merchandise, as well as sip craft cocktails, taste scrumptious food selections and participate in various activities onsite. The event will once again be presented in partnership with local promoter Proyectual.
The perfect compliment to next week’s 10 year anniversary soiree in Brooklyn, this summer’s Vila Habana weekender will be the ultimate celebration of Life and Death’s decade-long commitment to defying genre constrictions and bringing melody back to the underground.
Stay tuned for the second wave of artist announcements.
