Electronica will be the buzzword when Bay Beat Collective, Gumnaam and Oxy7gen will groove the house at the Weekender pre-party tonight
In its second year, the Bacardi NH7 Weekender has become one of the most sought after musical festivals of the country. The multi-genre festival features Electronica, Rock, Metal, Folk, Singer-Songwriters and a lot more. Among the 75 odd pre-parties, which are held in different parts of the country as a lead in to the festival, the one to be held at Bonobo tonight looks all set to be an Electronica affair.
Bay Beat Collective
The bands that will be performing include Mumbai-based Bay Beat Collective (BBC), which is mainly a DJ collective comprising Kris Correya (DJ/ Producer/ Effects Tweaker), Sohail Arora (DJ/ Producer/ Promoter) and Raffael Kably (Sound engineer/Gizmo Nerd); London-based Gumnaam who is riding high on Dubstep and Mumbai-based DJ Ox7gen (Aditya Ashok), involved in quality drum and bass production. Among these, BBC will also be seen performing at the Weekender to be held in Pune.
The pre-parties will culminate into a three-day festival to be held in Pune from November 18 to 20. The much-awaited festival will include over 50 artists, six stages and amazing musical performances. BBC will be performing at the Eristoff Wolves Den, a stage for Dance and live Electronica. "BBC is currently leading the drum n bass scene in India, and are a fantastic live act; you can also get a preview of what to expect from their set at the Eristoff Wolves Den on November 19 in Pune," says Vijay Nair, CEO, Only Much Louder, the festival organisers.
Adding that it is dubbed as a fun music festival, Nair says, "The festival is about creating an experience that people will perhaps remember as the happiest festival and look forward to. That can only be created by bringing together artists from all genres, fans from across the world and bringing to life an all-inclusive festival that is about the artists who play, fans who attend and the people who produce it. Like last year, we will not hesitate in bringing artists you might have not heard of, and curating performances you will never forget."
