Bangalore to witness its ecologically-crafted music festival in 'Echoes of Earth'

MUMBAI: Bangalore will witness its very own music festival in 'Echoes of Earth'. The festival that will spread over 150 acres will celebrate music and earth with 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 that is scheduled for the 26 and 27 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) and Tribal Flora (Ind).

Early bird tickets for the festival can be purchased via BookMyShow. The tickets are priced at INR 1500 for Day 1 and INR 2200 for Day 2, with offers for students. There will be plenty of accommodation options available around the venue. But if one wishes to indulge in the true Echoes of Earth experience, one can camp out under the stars.

Furthermore, being an ecologically-crafted festival the architects and artists from the world over will collaborate to showcase their art using the practices of upcycling and recycling.

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.

Echoes of Earth, festival director, Roshan Netalkar says, "Echoes of Earth is a celebration of music, nature, and 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.
