About

BandCamp Season 5 is on! Now enjoy the camping experience every weekend until April’ 19!


Music Under The Stars is BandCamp's own little way of taking you out of the city hustle on a Saturday night and making you experience great live music in the middle of nature. There is a naturally sculpted amphitheatre at the campsite that's perfect to lay back on and count stars, while listening to bands play your favourite tunes. The music ranges from indie, blues, funk, RnB, jazz to rock and pop!


There will also be bonfires, a sundown barbeque, a village sunset walk, and some great food! The campsite has large grounds and they’ve added hammocks, books, and games to ensure that there is something for everyone.


About the site


A stone’s throw away from the city, BandCamp is located off Gorai Beach. Its layout lets you enjoy nature and also have your privacy even though it’s a bustling campsite. Expect tents, sleeping bags and camping goodies, unwind in the main area, or walk around the fishing village down to the sea anytime. Since Uttan is a coastal town (home to the Koli community), meals are freshly made by locals.


BandCamp is best suited for groups, solo campers, families, corporates, couples and pets. Basically, everybody! You can even attend their Movie Nights on Fridays, or weekend workshops on capoiera, photography, fitness, poetry and so on.

The BandCamp Vibe

Band 1: Rahul Bhardwaj

Rahul Bhardwaj is a singer-songwriter by night and an advertising professional by day. Fortunately he’s passionate about both. A graduate in Indian Classical Music and an MBA from IIM Indore, Rahul started learning music at the age of 4, spent his formative years as a musician getting into the depth of music and participating in various music competitions. He wrote his first song back in the 9th standard but never considered songwriting a serious hobby. It was only after he shifted to the magical city of Mumbai that the independent music scene inspired him to take up songwriting again and gave him a medium to start expressing himself as honestly as he could. And after a gap of 9 years, he wrote his next song and the journey continues. Rahul loves music, be it commercial or independent, from John Mayer’s meticulous metaphorical writing to Shafqat Amanat Ali’s soulful singing. He picks up his learning form everyone and everything, including his life and tries to make music that touches people's souls.

Band 2: TAPAS

TAPAS is a Hindi rock band from Mumbai. Their first EP "Aarambh" revolves around expressing deepest inner human emotions through their crowd involving melodies. Their music, quite modern and fresh, rooted to the element of rock, will take the listener to the journey of various thoughts, emotions and expressions of life yet leaving them humming the easygoing and engaging tunes.
