GOAT, is a new boutique music and arts festival set to happen in Goa from the 27th – 29th of January. It’s being held at the beaches of Ashvem and Morjim and will curate future-forward sounds from India and around the world alongside performing arts, theatre and spoken word.
The intimate festival that seeks to position itself at the confluence of contemporary and traditional, between East and West, will introduce and showcase a side of India rarely seen by international travellers and curate a multi-sensory, immersive experience unknown to many Indians.
The line-up features some really incredible names like Gilles Peters
on, Hercules & Love Affair, Sarathy Korwar, Yussef Kamaal, Marquis Hawkes, Kiasmos, Henry Wu, Medlar and the most exciting Indian acts like Sandunes, Blot!, Donn Bhat + Passenger Revelator, Kumail, Aqua Dominatrix, Madboy/Mink, among others.
GOAT festival is presented by GOAT Music, a London-based music and events agency, founded by Dave Gaydon and Lou Birkett. “After leaving The Roundhouse in the summer of 2015, never would we have imagined to be able to present our own festival in the UK let alone in India. The reception has ben so encouraging, we are very grateful to be working in such a progressive and creative landscape. We are counting down the days to January 2017,” says Dave Gaydon, CEO, GOAT Music.
