Photos: Mahindra Open Drive 2022 Marks the Return of Music Festivals
Everyone from Benny Dayal and Raghav Meattle to Kamakshi Khanna and When Chai Met Toast took the stage
Last week, Mahindra Open Drive returned to music festival calendars on February 26th with a day-long lineup, alongside the vibe-setting additions like mural painting, a “sustainability bazaar,” kayaking, mural painting and even pottery.
Started in 2019 as a two-day edition, Mahindra Open Drive too scaled down like most live events but they more than made up for it with a solid lineup of indie crowd-pullers. The single-day edition of Mahindra Open Drive brought together playback singer and pop artist Benny Dayal & Funktuation ft. The Hornflakes, indie/folk act When Chai Met Toast, psychedelic/alternative act Peter Cat Recording Co., a cappella group Voctronica, singer-songwriter Kamakshi Khanna and singer-songwriter Raghav Meattle.
Hosted by VJ Zerxes Wadia, the festival was set up at Camp Max in Kalote Mokashi outside of Mumbai city. The verdant surroundings provided a cozy backdrop for soothing indie tunes kicked off by Khanna and by nightfall, the volume was pumped up thanks to the likes of Benny Dayal and Peter Cat Recording Co.
