Music Festivals give life to this otherwise mundane world and entering the magical arenas for a couple of days is always a breath of fresh air. India is no stranger to some beautiful festivals and we’ve even had some massive international events coming down to the country for some Indian editions. From homegrown festivals like Magnetic Fields Festival to imports like DLDK, here are some that you need to plan for this year!
Everyone knows of the Major Lazer trio and their addictive brand of reggae/moombahton music. One of the key members Jillionare is coming down to India for a special show and we’re super excited for this one. The Trinidad & Tobago native perfectly fuses Caribbean sounds with various genres from around the world to great effect. He’s coming next year to India for Vh1 Supersonic along with Diplo and Walshy Fire, but he does a series of individual tours as well, with his own brand of music.
