One of the most eagerly anticipated music festivals in the country, Bacardi NH7 Weekender, is back with its third edition, getting three times bigger. To be held on October 13 and 14 at the Buddh International Circuit, it will have designated areas for different genres of music. They are: the Eristoff Wolves Den that comes alive with electronica and dance music, The Dewarists Stage with folk and fusion music, Bacardi Black Rock Arena with rock and metal, Dub Station with dubstep, drum ‘n’ bass and reggae, and The Other Stage with some exciting singer-songwriters.
There is also a brand new genre being introduced this year called The Fully Fantastic where NH7.in curates the music, programming popular favourites that cannot be missed. Additionally, there’s a brand new Bacardi Breezer area with crazy costumes and insane colours, where the DJ will be spinning reggae, funk, jazz, salsa and other music to make you move. ‘‘Bacardi believes in bringing people together and Bacardi NH7 Weekender is a true affirmation of that belief. We were overwhelmed by last year’s response, participation support, and now we bring the festival back with a bigger bang by taking it to three cities, starting with Delhi,” says Manish Seth, director, marketing and sales, Bacardi India. Last year saw acclaimed international artists and homegrown talent, this year there will much more. In Delhi, we will see artists such as Megadeth and Anoushka Shankar performing at the festival. “We are excited that the show is travelling to cities like Delhi and Banagalore where we’ve had our patrons, and are looking forward to many more happy faces this year,’’ says Seth.

Tickets are priced at Rs 3,000 and there’s a discounted ticket at Rs 1,499 for people under 21. A single day ticket costs Rs 1,500 on the first day, and Rs 2,000 on the second day.
