I Love You began in December 2003 as a small bar and venue in Old Town Riga. Over the years Bar I Love You has hosted live performances of dozens of artists and bands from the Baltics and other countries – Sweden, the United Kingdom, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Israel, Belarus, Finland, etc.
Since 2009 Bar I Love You had its own stage at Positivus Festival, the biggest open-air music festival in the Baltics. In 2009 one of the headlining acts on I Love You Stage was the band Zvani, an one-off project created by members of some well known Latvian indie bands. The live recording of Zvani performance was so impressive that we decided to release it under a new label I Love You Records. There were only 100 CD copies of the Zvani album were produced and the record has become a rarity between Latvian music fans.
Since 2009 we have released 26 records, 15 artists mostly represent Baltic music scene – Ewert and the Two Dragons, Iiris, AliseJoste, Mona De Bo, Momend, Laika Suns, Sibyl Vane, etc, but having also Super Besse (BY) and scandinavian band MaiNekk.
I Love You has curated their own stage at Positivus festival and Summer Sound both in Latvia as well as for several years curated a showcase at Tallinn Music Week together with Positivus festival.
