8th August 2020, Mumbai: We won our freedom from the Britishers in 1947, and have maintained this freedom through the valiant efforts of our armed forces. However, in recent times our great nation’s freedom has come under fire. We might think that we are free but how free are we really? Are we free to say whatever is on our mind? Are we free to wear, what we want to wear? Are we free to go where we want? Are we free from politics, corruption, fake ideas and hypocrisy that seem to have plagued our great nation? Are we free from being judged, are we truly *Free In Everything* ? Do we even know or remember, what it means to be free?
They say *Freedom Comes At A Price* and *The Freedom Festival* is our way to inspire the
people of this great nation to rise and fight for their *True Freedom* ! Through our music, we
want to show our country, what it means to be truly free. We want to bring about a change
that that will give us the *Freedom To Be Ourselves* no matter what!
*The Freedom Festival* will kick off on the 8th of August as an ode to the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, with patriotic performances from over 70 talented artists from the talent pool of A&M Studio. The festival will conclude on the 21st of August, Independence Day to represent a journey of sacrifice and finally getting true *’Freedom In Everything’ PERIOD* !
