New Music Festival Launches This Weekend
Thursday, 27 March 2014 10:39

If the  trippy Bunuelesque posters are anything to go by, we’re already pretty intrigued about Eden, the newest music festival to hit Mumbai this weekend.

Put together by Bhavishyavani Future Soundz (BFS) and  Moustache Co, Eden that will involve art and live  performances, is an attempt to transform the city into a ‘countercultural playground’, reflective of its vibrant people.

Don’t roll your eyes just yet, the festival has a pretty mad , diverse lineup with Minilogue, Loopkin and Sandunes,  hiphop artist DJ Uri featuring Suman Sridhar and saxophonist Pavan, and India’s reggae/ragga duo, Delhi Sultanate and Begum.

Pencil This In

Over the weekend, the organisers are looking at creating three distinct experiences across the city at venues like Blue Frog and the Palladium Terraces, ending with a mega party titled The Garden of EDEN.
