Why India Needs More Events Like Riders Music Festival

Posted at February 20th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in

Riders Music Festival just wrapped up it’s first edition and as first times go, it was definitely a success. A very well organised event, there were a lot of plusses, and few negatives in the two day event. The turnout was decent for a new festival, and not overcrowded as a lot of popular festivals have been. JLN Stadium was a good location for the well spread out event and there was a lot going on over the two days.

Entry procedures, box office, and parking arrangements were well organised and it’s not something that all festivals take care of. There were locker facilities and ample security measures, to make everyone feel safe and comfortable.

There was a lot of appropriate emphasis on bikes and bikers, and despite the music, food, and other activities, they didn’t lose the essence of the festival. Bike showcases, stunts, and a lot more was dedicated for the bike lovers in the attendees. It wasn’t just a riders festival in name.

The lineup of musicians and comedians was well thought and stage setup and production was on point. Amit Trivedi‘s performance especially stood out as it saw the most enthusiastic response form the crowd.

The food and beverages were provided for with chains like Social and Beer Cafe on the scene. There were also a bunch of food trucks for people to try some different delicacies but the culinary aspect didn’t take over the festival, keeping more focus on riders and music.

The one negative was lack of clean and ample toilet areas for men and women. Just a few stalls, without basic level of hygiene was disappointing. It’s easy to underestimate washroom usage at a festival with proper footfall.

Overall, for a first time effort, a great effort by the team. Curated by Phoenix Live and RedFM, Riders Music Festival was a pleasure to attend and we’re sure they’ll make it even better next time. Other festivals should take a leaf out of their book when it comes to organisation and maintaining the theme of an event.
