With a colossal growth in the Delhi Music Scene lately, It’s only imperative to see a rise in the number of musicians budding out of their cocoons. The scene is set to be on fire sooner than ever.  With that incremental generation, the demands for places to jam are set to heighten. Not everyone has the zeal to rent out a whole house like the Indian Ocean, and jam and live together.

The Jam Pads in Delhi have crept up like Tesla’s charging stations in the states. We have compiled a list of 5 Jam Pads in Delhi and around that might become the new apexes of this new civilization of music. Learn more here:

Carnival Underground

Being true to its name, One of the oldest jam pads in the capital is no short of a carnival. With a guest list of Nasya, Undying Inc., Badshah, Shibani Kashyap, Mohini Dey, Gino Banks, and Shafqat Amanat Ali, the jam pad seems to be a well-known top shop. The jam pad is almost 6 years old. Although we are tempted to use a carnival of rust pun here but that would be in distaste for some. However, the venue has seen almost 1500 bands practice and play, clocked 10,000 work/jam hours and trained 1500 students.

Carnival is one hell of a venue which becomes more clear when the place is booked for a show. As the pad can be transformed into a stage within no time and has a capacity of 100 attendees. With such a history and patronage, the prices feel almost as a discount to an adventure.

Apart from the mentioned, Carnival Underground also offers Music Classes, Equipment Rental and Dance Classes. To top it all, the organization also manages resident musicians.

Timings: Morning: 7:00 am – 1:00 pm
Afternoon: 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Evening: 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Charges: Rs. 300 Per Hour
