The Sxene Returns For Second Edition This Weekend in Bengaluru
The one-day festival will feature performances by genre-bending trio DCF_Shapes, producers JBABE and Chrms, singer-songwriter Ramya Pothuri and more
After a successful first edition last year, one-day music festival The Sxene returns on November 9th at Bengaluru’s multi-purpose community center The Neighborhood. This year The Sxene scaled up to include more artists, a visual showcase and more activities. Singer-songwriter and managing director at organizers RECK Andrew Sabu says, “We’ve also taken things up a level with regard to aesthetic and design.”
The lineup features a healthy mix of music ranging from R&B, hip-hop, electronica and pop. The bill includes genre-bending trio DCF_Shapes, Mumbai producer Chrms, singer-songwriter Ramya Pothuri, Chennai electronica artist JBABE, noise pop artist Killpop and more. Sabu says, “Attendees can expect several different kinds of music performed by some of our country’s best.” He adds, “They’ll enjoy all of this in the open air within a breezy, green venue.”
Apart from the music, festival-goers can also indulge in activities such as beer pong, a poi-spinning workshop, feast on the food and drink stalls and soak in the art displayed across the venue. Bengaluru tattoo artists from Pumpkin Patch Studios return this year too and will have their station set up at the venue for those looking to get inked.
With RECK now looking to make The Sxene a yearly affair, ask Sabu what we can expect from future editions and he says, “We are currently in talks with bands and performers we truly admire which is humbling and rewarding. In keeping, you can expect international acts to join us in the coming months and years as well as marked differences in scale and vibe for future sxenes.” He adds, “We like to keep things fresh.”
