Last year, the organizers of India Music Week announced an impressive line-up of 40 bands to play at the debut edition of their music festival and conference in Delhi with follow-up shows in Bengaluru and Mumbai. The dates, however, clashed with Pune’s biggest music festival, Weekender. This year, the annual multi-city, multi-genre fest takes place two weeks after Weekender’s 2012 edition.

While there are many repeats from the first year on the festival line-up such as Teddy Boy Kill, BLOT!, Soulmate, Thermal And A Quarter and Parikrama, festival goers can look out neighboring talents with bands like alt rockers Jindabaad from Nepal and percussion ensemble Naadro from Sri Lanka.

Genre-hopping European imports on the schedule include French reggae act Dub Inc, which manages to mix influences of dancehall, dub and rap in their set. While Weekender Pune attendees may have seen Berlin electro act Jahcoozi, the band’s Sasha Perera brings her solo outfit Mother Perera to Mumbai this month as part of the India Music Week. EDM fans can also look out for dance-friendly music by Lemaitre from Norway, while fans of rootsy-folk can watch out for Jil Is Lucky from France.
