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.

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
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
