Week #1 - The Big Squat Festival
An art squat is a name used to describe the action of artists to occupy (or squat in) an abandoned building, thereby creating studio space to create art.
After an exhilarating first season in 2017, featuring concerts across Gujarat and making the state’s first truly all-independent music festival - spanning across 2 days and 2 stages - Fangirl is back. Bigger, better, fresher.
Pesh hai The Big Squat! An effort spanning 8 weeks (yes!), starring 32 handpicked artists from the Indian Independent Circuit. The exciting format features standup comedy, films, spoken word poetry, food and of course - music!
Music at Week #1 of The Big Squat will feature Hindi/Urdu psychedelic rockers Parvaaz (Bangalore), supported by fingerstyle percussive guitar virtuoso Samar Mehdi (Pune)
Comedy at Week #1 will see Akash Mehta from Bombay, known for his simple yet hysterical anecdotal style. Supporting him will be the very promising Rag Brahmbhatt from Ahmedabad.
