Lifafa, Sickflip, Blot! & More Announced For Multi-Day Music Event Earthen
20 November 2020
While India continued to see a daily number ranging from 30,000 to 50,000 of new Coronavirus infections in the month of November, the country’s suffering events industry edged towards a return with limited capacity gigs at some of its regular haunts and especially at hotels of Goa. Most large-scale music festivals have decided to skip having a 2020 edition (Supersonic even postponing itself straight to 2022) or host a virtual edition, with the exception of Sunburn which announced dates at Vagator, Goa for December before retracting its decision and announcing a series of venues along the beach instead.
Amidst it all, the country’s dance music scene has received a new multi-day music event with Earthen, which describes itself as a “boutique IP whose holy-grail is bequest forts, palaces and imperial mansions across the country with music, art and culture being the pivot.” For its first edition, Earthen is hosting a 2-day music event on December 12 and 13.
In light of the pandemic, the event has announced a strict invite-only policy to maintain a limited on-ground audience, the members of which will have to submit a negative COVID report 24-48 hours before entering and follow social distancing guidelines and health advisories.
