We at Loudest.in extensively covered last year’s edition of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender and even ended up at the Pune edition to imbibe all the goodies of the Happiest Music Festival in the country. Well, it’s that time again! Although the tickets for this year’s edition was made available a while back, the lineup is finally here – IT’S HUGE and it’s causing quite an uproar!
BACARDI NH7 WEEKENDER PUNE
This year, the Pune edition of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender will be held from 29th November to 1st December. Last year, Pune saw the likes of Joe Satriani, The Contortionist, FKJ, God Is An Astronaut etc and it was massive! But this year’s lineup seems to blow that out of the park. This year, Pune will see the mighty Swedish Progressive Metal gods Opeth, the monstrous Australian Nick Murphy FKA Chet Faker and the dreamy Irish Rock band Kodaline. Along with that, there’s jazz pioneers Kokoroko as well.
WHAT? DID I JUST HEAR THAR CORRECTLY? YES! If that wasn’t enough, fans will get to see the Dreamville Showcase, featuring artists from J Cole’s award winning label such as Earthgang and Cozz as well as Rap Artists such as the Gully Gang Showcase, Kaam Bhai & Spitfire and Raja Kumari. Fans last year had been dying to get some metal back and their prayers have also been answered, with bands such as Underside, London Punk/Metal up comers Pengshui, Bangalore’s Grindcore masters Gutslit, Bombay’s very own Bhayanak Maut and after a big pause, Bombay metal band Devoid! Along with that, it’ll also be fun to watch artists like Fopchu, Submarine In Space, Kavya x Chaz, Okedo, Lifafa and many other Indie acts that will surely shine when the time comes.
Here’s the full lineup for the Bacardi NH7 Weekender Pune 2019:
BACARDI NH7 WEEKENDER MEGHALAYA
After another wonderful Weekender in Meghalaya last year, it returns in 2019 with a very interesting lineup – spearheaded by Australian Progressive Rock legends Karnivool and Canadian Instrumental Progressive Rock pioneers Intervals, along with the legendary Shubha Mudgal and local giants Soulmate!
It’s also amazing to see the plethora of Indie bands that are on the bill for Meghalaya – from bands that really entertained us last year at Pune like Tanya Nambiar, Nothing Anonymous (they were featured on our Top 5 Artists from Pune last year), Benny Dayal & Funktuation, DCF Shapes to first timers Pakshee, Antariksh, Saptak Chaterjee and Gauley Bhai.
This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender and as always, the festival has provided big guns along with artists that will cater to all genres. So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now! We will be there for sure!
