Steven Wilson, Anoushka Shankar to Headline Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2016
The annual music festival’s seventh edition announced international and Indian artists for their lineup throughout the day
It looks like Bacardi NH7 Weekender have got all their genresÂ covered with #lineup2016–the annual music festivalÂ has announced headlinersÂ that include everyoneÂ from [much-anticipated] prog artist Steven WilsonÂ (with shows in Shillong and Pune) to veteranÂ American hip hop DJ Premier to metallers SkyharborÂ (both in Pune). The lineup, which was revealedÂ through the day today, also includes a fair share of Bollywood representation withÂ acts like Shankar Mahadevan with his ”˜My Country My Music’ folk project, Farhan Live and AR Rahman-founded a capella group NAFS.
Apart fromÂ Wilson, other big draws include international acts across the board English rockers band Dinosaur Pile upÂ (who performed at the 2014 edition),Â Swedish indie/folk singer-songwriterÂ JosÃ© Gonzalez,Â AmericanÂ electronic music producer RAC,Â WelshÂ alt rock band The Joy Formidable and more.
The seventh edition of Weekender keeps its date with Pune [December 2nd to 4th] and will return to Shillong [October 21st and 22nd], but skips Delhi and Bengaluru for the first time since it was introduced in 2012. Expansion is definitely the main focus this year, with Weekender setting up in Hyderabad for the first time, on November 5th and 6th.
