Come February and Bollywood's talent house Farhan Akhtar, American rock band Boyce Avenue, members of stand-up comedy group All India Bakchod (AIB) Tanmay Bhat and Abish Mathew will head here to spread a wave of fun through 'U/A’ festival.
Only Much Louder, the creators of some of India's most loved festivals like BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender and Stage42, promises to bring a complete entertainer for fans of all ages. Titled ‘U/A’, the festival features diverse mix of experiences - music and comedy performances, a range of carefully picked exciting activities and specially crafted immersive experiences, read a statement.
The first edition of the two-day festival will begin in the national capital on February 13, and will treat visitors to workshops like ukulele playing and 3D Printing to activities such as poi play, hula hoop, slacklining, Nitrogen science labs and the magical floating market.
Other performers include Biswa Kalyan Rath, a stand-up comedian and co-host of YouTube comedy series ‘Pretentious Movie Reviews’, and Anuvab Pal, another stand-up comedian, among others.
Vijay Nair, CEO of Only Much Louder, said: “The options for quality entertainment in the country for people outside the 'youth marketing' demographic are very limited. U/A is an attempt to fill in this gap with an all-encompassing festival that has something for literally everyone.
"With this one, we will go beyond just music and comedy to create a more interactive and immersive experience, one that we hope will resonate with fans even after the festival is over.”
The festival features six curated zones - The big stage, creator's corner, U/A lab, the playground, the magical floating market and food and flea bazaar.
The tickets are available on Insider.in at Rs.1500, and children below 10 years and for grown-ups above 60 years, entry is free.
