Boxout.fm launches travelling event series

MUMBAI: New Delhi-based online community radio station boxout.fm paints a diverse and accurate portrait of music tastes in India and around the world. More than 88 resident radio hosts have presented 120+ shows that span the length and breadth of contemporary music. In addition, boxout.fm’s flagship event series Boxout Wednesdays is now the longest-running midweek nightclub residency in the country, and their annual festival - Boxout Weekender - has gone from strength to strength, seeing more than 3000 fans in attendance at its most recent edition in New Delhi.

Beginning July, boxout.fm announces its first travelling event property in association with local promoters, venue owners and music collectives across the country.

boxout.fm Showcase will explore new sounds, visuals, and mixed-media, and will provide a platform for the wide variety of musical genres that radio hosts champion across their boxout.fm radio shows. In addition, the boxout.fm Showcase will shine a light on from all over India across many different mediums of creative expression.

"We felt the best way to expand into newer areas outside of just our broadcasting program was to connect personally and musically with some of the great local venues, promoter, and crews who are hard at work spreading the love for alternative music in their cities. boxout.fm Showcase is a months-long culmination of that idea, and our aim is to reach every major and tier-2 city in India to give them a first-hand impression of what a boxout.fm event is like - a celebration of community, music and the arts,” boxout.fm co-founder Mohammed Abood aka DJ MoCity said.

These inventive pop-up showcases are held in partnership with local promoters and the first boxout.fm showcase kicks at Echoes in Kolkata on 12 July 2019 with music from Sub-Z’s Tanzen and Stain, in partnership with local production company Littlei. Sub-Z are the new-age champions of New Delhi’s ever-evolving bass music underground, and also the hosts of the radio show Sub-Z Sessions on boxout.fm.
