LOCALS started off initially as a secret Facebook group. It is an initiative to bring local talent closer to its audience, without losing its artistic purity. In the process building a community experience where people from different walks of life can communicate, share etc using music as a common factor.
Its inception was on a small rooftop in Gurgaon where (Vijay Kumar Prabhakaran aka Mister.K (Artist/DJ) decided to create a parallel scene to the typical Delhi nightlife scenario, this one was different, this one was purely about good vibes and great music. It slowly grew organically to what it is today.
