BandCamp Season 6 is on! Now enjoy the camping experience every weekend until April’ 2020!
BandCamp Talkies is our own little way of helping you reconnect with cinema out in the open in a beautiful camping environment. Also, since the venue is BandCamp, there is going to be some great live music before the screening. You can expect the movies to come from a mix of world cinema, classics and crowd favourites. The band before that will be indie, blues, retro music and so on! There will also be bonfires, a barbeque, sunset walks, and some great food! The campsite has large grounds and we’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 (clock says 60 mins!), BandCamp is located off Gorai beach. The layout is such that you can enjoy nature and 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 our Movie Nights or weekend workshops on Capoeira, Photography, Fitness, Poetry and so on.
Movie: The Grand Budapest Hotel
In the present day, a teenage girl approaches a statue in a courtyard. In her arms is a memoir by "The Author." She begins reading about a trip he made to the Grand Budapest Hotel in the late 1960s. He discovered that the nearly deserted hotel,located in the Republic of Zubrowka, a nation ravaged by war and poverty, had fallen on hard times and become dilapidated. The Author meets Mr Moustafa, the hotel's owner, who tells him over dinner the tale of how he took ownership of the Grand Budapest and why he is unwilling to close it down.
Band 1: Ryan Crasto
Ryan Crasto is a Mumbai based English singer-songwriter. He was drawn to music as a child, growing up in the classic country and pop music. The time that he spent participating in his church choir led him to develop a love for harmonies and guitar accompaniments. He has been playing guitar since the age of 8 and composed his first song when he was 15. He formed a 5 piece progressive metal group called 'Eve's Rotten Apple' along with his college mates, for which he was the lead vocalist and bassist. The band went on to do multiple live stage acts.
