Mahindra Open Drive - A Festival of Music, Food, Adventure and Experiences!

Experience an amazing line-up of international and local musicians, adventure, specially curated food & flea at this 2-day festival.

Freedom is the feeling of just you and the open road. The drive liberates, it romances serendipity. 6 am sunrises and 6 pm sunsets. With music in your ears and wind in your hair, cruise down the unending roads, take an occasional glance in the rear-view, smile and leave behind a beautiful memory. The sound of your engine changing to a roar every time you step on the gas and the feeling of finally getting to where you want to be.

Welcome to the Mahindra Open Drive, an epic road-trip to Goa for a 2-day festival of people from across the country on November 8 & 9 Bandodkar Grounds, Panjim, Goa.

The Festival:

Mahindra Open Drive is a 2-day festival where people from across the country can join in at Bandodkar Grounds, Panjim, Goa on November 8 & 9. Here, one can experience an amazing line-up of international and local musicians, adventure, specially curated food & flea and, guess what? You can also join the rising tribe and do a little, give a little and smile a lot!

The Drive:

Collect your favourite people and plan your road trip to Goa with Mahindra Open Drive. It is one of India's most iconic journeys – not as much for the drive itself as what that act is representative of: a sense of camaraderie and togetherness. Be warned. There is no big reward or no prize money, but the drive packs in ten hours of close time with friends and family, and that's the spirit Mahindra Open Drive celebrates and stands for. So buckle up to drive down for the sense of community, the solidarity that you envision for the world around you. Show support for - and celebrate - the good in society. Not your average spin around the corner, is it?

Cities on the Road to Goa:

  • Mumbai
  • Hyderabad
  • Bangalore
  • Pune


Sign-up for the drive and get more details on the pit-stops, the routes and all other necessary.

The Fundraising:

The Mahindra Open Drive doctrine embraces the 'do a little, give a little, smile a lot' ideology. Put simply, the festival encourages attendees to find happiness in recognizing and celebrating the good deeds done by people and contributing to individuals and institutions that make them happen.

In line with this, the prime intent for the fundraising for the festival has six underpinning causes:

  • Education
  • Healthcare
  • Safety
  • Livelihood
  • Environment
  • Rights & inclusion


Through fundraising initiatives, festival-goers - or the Tribe - are able to pledge monetary aid to a cause they believe in, put the spotlight on NGOs and partner organizations actively involved in making change happen, and rope in friends and family to drum up vocal (and social media) support.
