For 20th consecutive year the Mercat de Música Viva de Vic is coming. This market was born with vocation of internationalizing the Catalan music and certainly every time his market approaches more to its goal, because it’s already considered one of the cultural markets of reference for the musical industry all over the world. In addition this year the ICIC (Catalan Institute for Cultural Industries) has decided -together with other 4 other festivals- to consider the Mercat de Música Viva de Vic as an strategic market for the diffusion of the music and the culture of our country.
The market, divided between the professional part and the festival part, receives to all the professionals of the music world as visitors or as exhibitors, and works also as a meeting point of all the lovers of this art called music.
With a concerts schedule divided into two parts; the Invictro (with local artists, in the off scene of the market) and the Selecció Oficial (with international artists). And it’s inside the Selecció Oficial that the colleagues that make Picap are very happy to be able to say that the people in the market will enjoy the music of our label artists.
