A vortex of colour and sound surrounded the 3500-strong crowd at the Holi Reloaded Festival at the Chitrakoot Grounds Andheri on Wednesday.
As a celebration filled with colour and fun, throwing powdered paint in a variety of colours has become iconic to this joy-filled festival. The festival was customed for a Rain Dance ready dance floor, which was excluded on the final day in support of water scarcity in Maharashtra.
Artificial snow and music never stopped, drawing people to dance under a coloured sky and beating sun. The extensive line-up included headlining act Juno Reactor (UK) also feat. Indian DJ’s Ankytixx, Anish Sood, Teenu Arora, Helium Project, Shivadelic and Phoenyx and supporting on the visual delight by VJ Tarang. The show was hosted by Nisha Harale Bedi.
As a festival celebrating the spirit of togetherness, the show was bang on target, with everyone partying together and connecting as one on the dance floor. Because surely, judging by the response, the festival will become a firm fixture on the Mumbai calendar.
