Bacardi NH7 Weekender as the artists see it

What do artists think of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender that takes Bangalore by storm this weekend? Listen before you watch them perform

Monica Dogra (Shaa'ir + Func)
If you've never been to Bacardi NH7 Weekender, I can personally guarantee that the cream of India's youth will be in attendance.  You'll see some of the smartest, most open minded, most fashionably dressed, most creative, most free-spirited folks wandering the  lush green grass, underneath art installations that transport you to this parallel universe where the vibrations are higher, the  music is louder, and the colours are brighter.  And then there's the music... If you like metal, Bacardi NH7 Weekender is for you, rock, it's for you, folk, it's for you, dubstep, it's for you, reggae, it's for you, electronica, it's for you, techno, it's for you...I could keep going, but you get the picture!  If you're anything like me, and a mix of styles and influences that often don't mix, Bacardi NH7 Weekender at Bangalore is a festival that will come through for each and every one of your desires.

Dualist Inquiry


Dualist Inquiry
Bacardi NH7 Weekender is easily one of my favourite festivals in the world. Because in addition to the great music that you find at a  lot of festivals abroad as well, Bacardi NH7 Weekender comes with a whole community of music lovers and people who are the nicest, friendliest and happiest people to share a festival with. I also usually have more friends with me than I can ever hope to have at a  festival in another country, so that's a huge bonus. And not to mention that some of the craziest crowds I've ever played to have been  at the Bacardi NH7 Weekender. I can't wait for the Bangalore edition of the festival... it's going to be crazy!

Karsh Kale


Karsh Kale
Bacardi NH7 Weekender Bangalore is an amazing festival, and a place where indie music comes together, and I love playing at the  festival each year. The Karsh Kale Collective + NH7 All Stars, which is the finale set for the festival, is a celebration of all the music  that’s played at the festival, and the music that we’ve grown up on. It features the best of the festival, and is going be full of surprises.

Papon

 
Papon
Playing at a festival is generally very exciting, it’s also playing for a  real audience. Bacardi NH7 Weekender is one of the biggest, truly international festivals in India. We’re designing a special set for the festival for Papon and The East India Company, so we’ll  have a new set, and definitely a few new songs as well. I’ve performed at Bacardi NH7 Weekender before and have always had a great concert. It’s a great festival, with lots of music and a really great vibe. Bangalore will be that and more. It really is the happiest festival around.
