Come November, Bangalore is going to host its very own music festival: Echoes of Earth. A festival that is a celebration of Music and Earth. With over 40 international and Indian artists over two days, one can expect live sounds of rock, jazz, classical, fusion, electronica, and a lot more on three very uniquely-crafted stages that will be centrepieces of the festival.

Echoes of Earth will be spread across 150 acres of pristine nature that will witness the epitome of artistic convergence. The festival is scheduled for the 26th and 27th of November 2016 at Embassy International Riding School, Bangalore.

The first line up of artists for Echoes of Earth includes global musicians such as SUBMOTION ORCHESTRA (UK), BEARDYMAN (UK), ALO WALA (DEN), SUSHEELA RAMAN (UK), TALVIN SINGH (UK), SITARSONIC (FRA), FRANCA (GER), ASVAJIT (SL), SAM MAHER (AUS), SOULMATE (IND), PETER CAT RECORDING CO. (IND), ZOYA (IND), YOUR CHIN (IND), NICHOLSON (IND), THE F16s (IND) & TRIBAL FLORA (IND). The second line-up along with headliners will be announced shortly.

There will be plenty of accommodation options available around the venue. But if you wish to indulge in the true Echoes of Earth experience, camp out under the stars and be one with the Earth like you never have before.

Being India’s first ecologically-crafted music festival, Echoes of Earth believes in the Earth to Earth philosophy which entails a deep commitment to the planet. At Echoes of Earth, architects and artists from the world over will collaborate to showcase their art using the practices of upcycling and recycling. Also part of the festival is Vadya Vithika, a museum of lost folk and tribal ethno-musical instruments, a property of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. This is a revival and a look-back of sorts to some truly exotic musical tools that have come to be lost over the years.

Festival Director of Echoes of Earth, Roshan Netalkar says “Echoes of Earth is a celebration of music, nature, & design. A festival that celebrates music from around the world with a focus on the environment and sustainable living. Our Endeavour is to reduce, reuse, recycle, and upcycle. Throughout the festival, you will witness ecological approaches and practices at play, made possible by adopting the most sustainable means of construction, energy & waste management. Echoes of Earth welcomes those with similar aspirations and dreams to join this endeavour to create a better tomorrow, all the while appreciating and enjoying our biggest gift to the Earth yet – Music”.
