If November is the month of indie rock festivals (read about them here and here), December is clearly the month of electronic dance music extravaganzas. Apart from Sunburn and Vh1 Supersonic, which will be held in Goa, there’s Magnetic Fields, which will take place in the Rajasthani town of Alsisar from Friday, December 12 to Sunday, December 14. Tickets for the fest, priced at Rs5,000 for three days, are now sale, over at Magneticfields.in. The line-up features Dream Koala aka Paris-based Brazilian electronica composer-producer Yndi Ferreira DaSilva, and his Spanish counterpart BeGun aka Gunsal H. Moreno whose alias is not to be confused with Begum, the experimental pop band from New Delhi, who are playing the fest as well. The Indian contingent also includes Kolkata-based experimental rock band PINKNOISE and Mumbai-based singer-songwriter Nicholson. In case you can’t afford the money or time to travel to Rajasthan or Goa for that matter, don’t feel too bad – December is a pretty good month for EDM fans here too.
We already told you about Major Lazer performing in our city on Friday, December 12 and now comes news that Bonobo aka British electronica star Simon Green will play Mehboob Studios on Saturday, December 13 as part of The Journey, the annual series of shows bankrolled by Johnnie Walker and put together by Oranjuice Entertainment. Also on the bill are Australian acrobatic, aerial and physical theatre company Dislocate who will present their new production If These Walls Could Talk, American jazz-fusion collective Snarky Puppy, and British opera singer and Britain’s Got Talent winner Paul Potts, the 2013 feature film about whom, One Chance will be screened at the event. Tickets will be available on Bookmyshow.com.
