Upcoming Indian Music Festivals & Events Of 2017 That You Need To Plan For

Posted at November 16th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Entertainment, Featured, Music Festivals

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!

 


Jillionaire

 

 

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.

What: Jillionaire, India Show
When: 10 PM onwards | 18th November 2017
Where: Priveé, New Delhi

Now they’re back on the 19th of November at Pebble, a gorgeous outdoor venue, and with an unparalleled lineup to boot.

Through its structure and content, BUDx puts the spotlight squarely on the development of electronic music in India as a tool of social cohesion and empowerment.

Bacardi Nh7 Weekender

 

Bacardi Nh7 Weekender is quoted as the “happiest music festival” and we’re in total agreement, but it’s also a more than that. With 40+ artists usually performing at the each of the major venues, music is definitely the central theme, but there is a lot more going on for the attendees. From the ever-present Ferris wheel, to unique mocktail bars, there is a lot to experience. It happens in many venues across the country, and this year the main editions are hitting up Pune and Meghalaya, and Pune is still coming up!

Dates: 8th – 10th December 2017
Venues: Pune


 

Magnetic Fields Festival

 

2017 brings you the fifth edition of Magnetic Fields Festival and you need to experience the ethereal vibe of the palace. It’s three days of living in a flurry of music and magic that no other festival can compare to. Set in a 17th century mahal in Alsisar, Rajasthan, you’ll be transported back through the years because of the infrastructure and decoration.

Dates: 15th – 17th December 2017
Venue: Alsisar Palace, Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan


 

Enchanted Valley Carnival

 

Enchanted Valley Carnival is a two day festival full of brilliant performances, fun activities, and endless music. Major Indian and international artist performances, fun stalls and activities, there’s a lot happening each time. It usually happens in December in and we’re looking forward to this one!

Dates: 16th – 17th December 2017

TimeOut72 Festival

 

A brand new property descending onto to Goa this December, TimeOut72 is the brainchild of event professionals and music enthusiasts with over 30 years of collective event experience.

Sunburn Festival

 

Sunburn is probably the most popular and well known music festival in India and this year is their 11th edition. They’ve been hosting their flagship edition in Goa each year, although last year they branched out to Pune. It’s definitely not going to be in Goa this year, but the venue hasn’t been announced yet.
