Ziro Festival Of Music
26 July 2012
The good chaps behind one of our favourite Delhi hangouts Ziro have just announced details about a new festival. The three day event will take place between 14-16 September this year, 167km from Itanagar (capital of Arunachal Pradesh) in a town called, wait for it... Ziro.
Set betwixt blissful hills within a cool altitude, Ziro Festival is situated within the heart of thick lush forest and paddy fields. Organisers are enticing punters with their persuasive rhetoric and also a warning: "Ziro is pretty. Ziro is quaint. Ziro is old. Ziro vibrates with a rare energy that will have you hooked, and will make you regret that you ever came here. Because once you get a taste of Ziro, you’ve got to keep coming back."
Promising delightful weather all year round this is a festival for music lovers, art enthusiasts and wanderers.
Tickets are a very reasonable Rs 1000 for one day or Rs 2500 for all three days (details of where you can buy these will be announced soon) and accommodation comes in a variety of forms with details about local options on the site here - camping facilities will also be available.
The line up so far includes:
Peter Cat Recording Co.
Teddy Boy Kill
Omak Komut Collective
The Vinyl Records
The Dirty Strikes
