Future of Psytrance Festivals of Kasol in Trouble?

Posted at May 31st, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

Who isn’t fond of music festivals in the mountains? We know we are! It’s an alluring combination of travel and music. And psytrance festivals in Kasol are the much-awaited getaways we fans from around the country wait for. One such festival that has gained much popularity across the country is Parvati Peaking. This year, the festival was scheduled from 27th to 30th May but unfortunately got cancelled at the end moment. The organizers announced the cancellation news on their Facebook event page.

The organizers stated the denial of basic loud permission as the reason for the scrape off of the festival. Now that is one core permission that the festival organizers have to take from local police authorities. Not only was this last minute cancellation troublesome for the local and international artists who came to perform but also for people travelling so far to attend the festival. One other psytrance festival which made its debut this May in Kasol had to shift their venue location to hilltop the last minute. The two-day festival was cut short to 1 day and started quite late because of some police issues.

Now what we need to understand is that there are untold amounts of logistics, difficulties, and tough decisions to be considered by the organizers to pull such an event through. But if in the end moment they are left with no choice but to cancel, it had to be done for the overall safety of everyone.

So with all these permission issues popping up, what do you think will be the future of festivals in Kasol? Let us know in comments on what you think.
