The Marvin Festival was created 10 years ago, but this virtual edition is presented as 9.5 because the organizers are going to reserve that bullet to celebrate the decade live. Faced with adverse times, managers have opted to create an edition that stores bridges in addition to online , free.
”This crisis creates opportunity. In this case, we are no longer obliged to be in Mexico City ”, admits Manú Charritton, the director of the event. For this reason, artists such as CeeLo Green, Róisín Murphy , Delaporte , El Columpio Asesino or La La Love You will play from November 26 to 28 in four different countries.
There will be more than 40 musicians who will be performing live at a #FestivalMarvin 9.5 that can be enjoyed free of charge via streaming, from Platform 9.5 powered by RENTEC and through Twitch, Amazon Music MX and Amazon Music US.
The stages are distributed in Argentina, Mexico, Sweden and Spain. These elections have not been arbitrary, although Charritton acknowledges in a Zoom call that others like Japan or Germany wanted to join when they had already announced the destinations. “The three most important markets for Spanish-speaking music are those three countries; as inhabitants and musical production ”.
In Spain, the allied cities of the Mexican event will be Madrid and Seville, the latter because they collaborate with the Monkey Week Festival . Artists such as El Columpio Asesino, Delaporte, La La Love You, Ginebras and Emilia Pablo perform at the Casa de América from the capital; while in Andalusia Adiós Amores, Colectivo Da Silva and Los Mejillones Tigre will participate.
