In just one year, the Bacardi NH7 Weekender has become the most anticipated music festival in the country. The festival features the best music from India and around the world – from underground artists that should feature on your playlist to award-winning artists you’ve been dying to see live.

Last year, the festival saw performances by over 50 artists including artists including Asian underground pioneers Asian Dub Foundation, British indie rock act The Magic Numbers, and Indian rock giants Indian Oceanand The Raghu Dixit Project. Perhaps truest test of how successful the festival was is to see how it was remembered. And if the press the festival received, or the word-of-mouth it generated, or even the #NH7 hashtag on Twitter is to be believed, people can’t wait for it to come back.

This year, the festival will be held between November 18-20 (tickets are on sale now!) at Laxmi Lawns, Magarpatta City, Pune. It will be headlined by Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Imogen Heap and British house giants Basement Jaxx(who will play a DJ set). They will be joined by a host of Indian artists and adoring fans at India’s happiest music festival.
