About

BandCamp Season 6 is on! Now enjoy the camping experience every weekend until April’ 2020!


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: Samar Mehdi

Born in Bhopal to a middle-class household, Samar broke his family’s institutional pattern early and had his heart set on music quite stubbornly. For a long time, he sneaked his way to learning instruments in school and at home when his parents were away, starting with the snare drum in his school’s marching band and moving on to the flute and saxophone. On the side of that, Samar secretly installed FL Studio 2 on his father’s celeron desktop and learnt music arrangement on it while no one was at home. Inspired by his cousin brother’s skills on the keyboards, Samar too tried his hand on it in school. Eventually, he found his way to the guitar, and that brought forth a new purpose to his songwriting. Samar quickly emerged as one of the best guitarists from his region, and is one of India’s best percussive-fingerstyle songwriters.




Band 2: AKDK Collective

At the campsite, we promote independent artists to come and perform their original music.
