We are trying to bring in a new wave of musicians that we believe are really good. The music programming is alternative and features upcoming talent from the country and abroad,” says Roncon. The line-up includes Alisha Pais, Siddharth Basrur, Sky Rabbit, Peter Cat Recording Company, Tough on Tobacco and The Colour Compound. The international acts confirmed to perform include New York-based indie pop band Cults, American electro rockers AWOLNATION and Bob Marley’s son Julian Marley.
Organizers are expecting to draw a moderate number. “We’ve made arrangements for not more than 5,000 people and are hoping that the fact that it is being organized in South Goa and the music will be filters for people who are really interested to show up,” says Roncon. There will also be shuttle buses organized from various points in the city to hop on and attend the festival. Tickets are prized at Rs 2,500 for one-day and Rs 3,000 for two-days.
