The popular NH7 Weekender music fest will court the northeast this year
Believed to be India's largest multi-genre music festival, the NH7 Weekender's ninth edition is headed to the gorgeous hills of Meghalaya on November 2-3 and will be back to Pune, the city it calls home, on December 7-9. The northeast, in recent times, has become a hotspot for progressive music events such as the Ziro festival and Orange Festival.
Since its inception, Weekender has featured over 540 artists from India and around the world, across a variety of genres to over 500,000 fans. The 2017 edition witnessed performances by some of the most acclaimed international headliners and stellar names from the Indian music scene, including Steve Vai, Textures, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Marky Ramone, CAS, Vishal Bhardwaj, Ram Sampath, Pentagram, The Local Train, TM Krishna, and Nooran Sisters.
The Pune edition of the festival also saw the addition of a comedy tent, featuring performances by more than 25 Indian comedians including Tanmay Bhat, Biswa Kalyan Rath, Kunal Rao, Naveen Richard and Aisi Taisi Democracy.
Now for its third year, with a vision to take the festival experience to more cities than ever before, NH7 Weekender Express Editions is yet to announce the lineup and dates. However, one thing is for sure that the day-long editions will offer some of the country's biggest acts.
Stay tuned for more updates!
