Ring in the New Year with æChasing StormÆ

MUMBAI: Music Festivals have become a toast of the country’s live entertainment scenario. With the audience preferring music festivals and new travel destinations, the makers of the much coveted Storm Festival are ready for the second edition of Chasing Storm, New Year’s Eve event, at Coorg on 31 December, 2015 and 1 January, 2016; a compact, far more intimate version of the Storm festival, will stay true to its inherent promise of being close to nature. Chasing Storm, New Year’s Eve event will be held at a lush green venue in Coorg- its birthplace - with camping, bonfires, late night bar-be-cues/barbecues and jams.

The line-up for the 48 hour long mini-fest includes: Indian Ocean – the legendary folk-fusion band which has had a long association with the Storm Festival, just like the festival ambassador Shankar Mahadevan. The ‘Malang Malang’ (Dhoom 3) and ‘Zinda’ (Bhaag Milkha Bhaag) singer Siddharth Mahadevan following his father’s footsteps will get the celebrations going at Chasing Storm with chart toppers from the year and more. The famous Tamil folk-fusion group Anthony Daasan in Party, will bring their unbridled energy to the stage with the sweet and easygoing combination of popular sounds with Tamil folk. Sylvester’s Trio have saved up some funky grooves and pristine three-part vocal harmonies for the party, while popular favourite of the festival- year-after-year – Solder will do what they best do: bring out all the good vibes.

DJ Swing, the official DJ for the Storm Festival since 2012 and holder of the Guinness Book of World records for playing 55 hours (Non-Stop), DJ Sam and DJ Nasha among others.

Chasing Storm is a special edition of the main festival – Storm which has emerged as one of the top festivals of Asia, in the last few years. Needless to say, Chasing Storm will present a crisper line up of electronic, folk- fusion and indie acts along with popular favourites from the music industry who will do justice to the special celebratory New Year Eve edition.
