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 to imports like Ultra Music Festival, here are some that you need to plan for this year!


Road To Ultra


World famous festival brand Ultra Music Festival is coming to Mumbai and New Delhi for Road To editions! The festival giant has spread all across the world and India is finally a part of it. Both are happening happening this September, with an insane lineup featuring The Chainsmokers, Slushii, Getter, Rezz.

Date: 7th September 2017 | 8th September 2017
Venue: Mumbai | New Delhi


Ziro Festival Of Music


The Ziro Festival Of Music which is held in the picturesque Ziro Valley in Arunachal Pradesh usually happens in September each year. Three days of selective performances by indie artists set in the most gorgeous outdoor venue, Ziro is one of the most popular festivals in India, especially in the north-east.

Dates: 28th September – 1st October 2017
Venue: Ziro Valley, Arunachal Pradesh


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. We’re hoping for some shorter editions to be announced in other cities as well!

Dates: 27th – 28th October | 8th – 10th December 2017
Venues: Meghalaya | Pune


Ed Sheeran


Worldwide singing sensation Ed Sheeran is coming back to India this November for an already sold out show in Mumbai. He’s performing on the 19th of November at the JioGarden in BKC, and if you’re a fan then this is not to be missed. Hopefully you’ve already booked tickets because it’s doubtful that more will be released, and this is going to be an epic show.

Date: 19th November 2017
Venue: JioGarden, BKC, Mumbai


World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival


Inceptor of Sunburn, Shailendra Singh, piqued the curiosity of the nation when on January 1, 2017, he launched a mysterious countdown clock on the website of his latest entertainment endeavour, Guestlist4Good. Block your calendars for Dec 1 | 2 | 3, 2017, because you won’t want to miss The World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival. The three-day event will unite the world of entertainment and music, right here in India, for the benefit of Indian children. Hardwell is already confirmed on the lineup and more are yet to come!

Dates: 1st – 3rd December 2017
Venue: DY Patil Sports Stadium, Mumbai


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, sky diving to camping, there’s a lot happening each time. It usually happens in December in Aamby Valley City and we’re looking forward to this one!

Dates: 16th – 17th December 2017
Venue: Aamby Valley City, Pune




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. Rumour has it that some pretty major artists are making their way down, and you can check out their website to stay updated!

Dates: 27th – 29th December 2017
Venue: Vagator Beach, Goa


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. Stay tuned for details!

Dates: 28th – 31st December 2017 (Presumably)
Venue: Pune (Presumably)
