Independent musicians of Bombay come together for a 3-month long digital music festival created for artists

MUMBAI: From The Island is a digital music festival, spread out over three months with 12 of the best independent acts of Bombay, streamed live from the best independent studio of Bombay, Island City Studios.

With the entire musical calendar of the season thrown out the window, professional musicians have found themselves competing in a totally saturated virtual space and facing unprecedented challenges in terms of shows and festivals being cancelled and a lack of legitimate platforms that actively support independent bands, which invariably leads to a lack of work and a lack of income.

With practically little to no infrastructure and support for independent musicians, Jehangir Jehangir (Owner of Island City Studios / Musician) and Clayton Hogermeer (Singer/Songwriter) were determined to create an

opportunity where there were none. Pooling in all of their resources, they reached out to the musical community at large to bring them together to not just showcase their work, but to create an experience for their fans and supporters, where nothing takes precedence over the music.

In partnership with SkillBox, the only ticketing & streaming platform in India to optimize the experience of live streaming making it almost life like with their pristine audio & video quality.
