Celebrating a decade in 2017, SulaFest is leaving no stone unturned to make the occasion extra special! The country’s most awaited gourmet, wine, drinks, music, fashion and more… festival is announcing the ‘SulaFest Rise and Shine Contest’– a contest that offers promising Indian artists a chance to be a part of The Line-up of the Year!
Known for bringing fresh artists from across the globe including India - featuring a wide range of genres, SulaFest’s contest is open to all forms of music, be it rock, techno, reggae, ska, indie, folk, electronica or jazz.
The amazing line-up this year includes popular bands from around the world, ranging from the UK, Italy, Israel, Argentina, India, Bosnia, Germany and more! Some of these include Grammy nominated as well as world festival favourites such as Dubioza Kolektiv, Jan Blomqvist and Band, Loco and Jam, Afro Celt Sound System, The Raghu Dixit Project, Swingrowers, Dhruv Voyage, The Ska Vengers, Indian Ocean, Nucleya and many, many more.
What’s even more exciting is that the two winning acts will not only get an opportunity to perform alongside these heavyweights but will also receive free studio time at Mumbai’s famed Cotton Press Studio which has seen sessions with some of the country’s biggest artists!
To participate, all artists and bands must be 18 years above and submit a live performance video, of one of their original compositions, between 60 to 180 seconds in length.
Registrations will close on January 10th, 2017. All video entries will then be shortlisted by the SulaFest jury panel before being uploaded to Sula Vineyards’ Facebook page for online voting from January 13th to January 15th.
