Headlining| Black Letters
Black Letters is an alternative/electronica act from Bangalore, India. Their debut album ‘Shapes on the wall’ is one of the most well received modern rock albums in the country. Black Letters have been featured in over 50+ international radio stations like Croydon Radio, Amazing Radio, EGH Radio, Uckfield FM, The shift Radio, across UK, US & Australia. Since then they have taken a turn from their previous arena rock style to an electronic dream pop influenced sound with their EP "Petrichor" which was released in 2015 which was rated as one of the best EPs of the year by Rolling Stone Magazine.
Having toured across the country and played many major festivals, Black Letters will be recording and releasing their highly anticipated album in 2017. The first single & music video from the record was released on Overfeed records on Sept 8th to both critical and public acclaim.

Support | The F16s
The F16s are an alternative band hailing from the port city of Chennai, India. Their music, echoes the melancholia that grapples with the mundanity of everyday life in a town that serves very little outside of itself. Lyrically driven, the ‘sound’ of the band rests in an arc that also includes acts like LCD Soundsystem, Julian Casablancas and the Voidz and The Horrors; beat-driven yet innately melodic. The band already has a couple of prior releases attached to them: a 6-song EP released in 2013 called Kaleidoscope, and a 2-track recorded in Brooklyn, New York called Nobody's Gonna Wait.
The band has now released their debut full-length album, Triggerpunkte; a nine-song offering that was recorded in Chennai and Mumbai for over a year. Both lyrically and musically, the album meanders between reverb-heavy sentimentality and fast-paced assault. Triggerpunkte is a reaction to the bands previous efforts where we explore the bands identity. the outcome is a populist, experimental, healing, agitating, straightforward, highly polished, and multi-layered album.

Headlining | Sapta
One of India’s top live electronic acts. Founded in 2007, by Marti Bharath, Sapta has continuously evolved to make their sound different and are currently crafting a whole new dimension in the Indian electro-rock community. Since 2011, Sapta has been touring as a duo with the addition of a drummer. They’ve released 7 albums so far.
A unique soundscape draws on Marti’s experiences of living and performing in San Francisco, Paris, Dubai and India. It features an eclectic mix of original electronic vibes, synthesizers, infectious rhythms and catchy vocal melodies brought to life with acoustic and electronic instruments.

In Marti’s own words -
“Sapta stands for ‘seven’ in Sanskrit. It actually started with another band in France, which was also called Sapta.
I needed a name, a separate act. I love the idea of being in a band, as compared to solo performances.”
“I don’t like labelling and pigeonholing, because none of our albums are the same as the previous one”
