NH7 Weekender Announce Pet Friendly Festival, Headliners & Delhi/Pune Line Up

13 September 2012

The third edition of “India's happiest music festival” is back and has grown three times its size this year, spreading out of its home in Pune to provide fans in Bangalore and Delhi with their very own festival experience.

Featuring six stages in each city dedicated to a specific genre and experience, punters can enjoy a mixture of dance, electronica, folk, fusion, rock, metal, dubstep, drum and bass and reggae. As an addition from previous years, there will be the Fully Fantastic Stage, curated by NH7.in, featuring their favourite upcoming artists and bands. Another addition will be the Bacardi Breezer area which promises to be a bright space full of colour, costumes and music to make you move.

The spotlight at the festival will also hit the Bacardi Black Rock Arena this year with American super-band Megadeth headlining the final day. Part of the ‘Big Four’, a list that also includes metal legends Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, Megadeth have been instrumental in shaping the face of metal over the last three decades.

As an added bonus (if you like dogs) music fans can this year look forward to the experience with the company of their canines, yes, dogs are also invited to all three editions of the festival. ‘Party Barky Hai’, Mumbai’s first canine events company are working with the festival by designing a specially designated pet zone at each venue where owners can bring their dogs and take part in games and competitions.

Fear not, if you’re worried about your precious pooch not being used to the festival environment, parties prior to each event (which will also double up as a screening process for dogs and their owners) will provide the perfect opportunity to road test your dogs' festival social skills. The first pre-party for Delhi is taking place on 15 September. Further info can be found here
