Indie artists include Hyderabad singer-songwriter Peekay, Bengaluru trio Cinema of Excess, producer-singer Noni-Mouse, singer-drummer combo Perp and Linformation, and more.
The hip-hop spectrum is covered by Azadi Records’ heavy-hitters and newcomers, featuring Mumbai producer-rapper Tienas, Kashmiri rappers Ahmer and SOS (Straight Outta Srinagar), Aizawl-bred Jelo, New Delhi’s Rebel 7 and producer Zero Chill. Also on the bill are seasoned scratchmaster DJ Uri, BLUnt, Paper Queen, and Yashraj and Friends.
The packed music line-up is just one side to SAUCE. The festival will also showcase art, crypto and fashion. An art garden will feature works by visual artists Aaquib Wani, Santanu Hazarika, Zake and others. A curated marketplace offers another shopping spot for fashion, while the festival also makes an imprint in the world of Web3 with a Crypto Jam curated by NFT platform Lemonade Social.
