For all those who think that there is no good music fest in India. Please read through.
I completed my B-tech from Pune in 2011 and immediately migrated to Mumbai to start my professional innings.
I came to know about NH7 Weekender from my roommate and colleague and immediately decided to join him for this fest. The month was November and the place was my favorite, Pune. We were excited to see some known and many unknown bands performing live. Weekender is a 3 day fest which imparts you many unforgettable memories for life time.
The crowd here is undoubtedly the hottest and happiest. There are 4 to 5 stages on which artist perform scintillating music from 4pm to 10 pm 3days in a row.
The genre varies from Rock to classical, death metal to folk, house to techno trance and what not. You can select you favorite genre or even hop between the arenas.
Booze counters and set up in every arena to maximize your fun when “you are there.”
Mosh pit is a common sight to watch in Wolves den arena.
Weekender surely gives you a chance to forget the worldly affairs for 3 days, let loose and connect to your soul via music. After parties that follow at various locations in Pune are a must.
Trust me nothing can beat meeting an old friend suddenly, lying on the grass and listening to Indian Ocean performing live on Dewarist stage .
This year will be my 5th Weekender in a row and I know this row will never end.
As they say, Talk to strangers make new friends.
