The music festival is celebrating its grand 10-year run this November.

The country’s largest multi-genre festival has announced its much-awaited line-up of top performing global and Indian artists for Pune.

The festival’s first edition was hosted in Pune way back in 2010 and has since been loved by loyal fans for its eclectic and exciting mix of performing artists across genres.

This year, global performers who will enthrall the city of Pune are Nick Murphy fka Chet Faker, Opeth, Kodaline, Dreamville Showcase – Earthgang, Cozz, Garden City Movement and Underside.

The Indian line-up includes names such as A Hariharan performing Soul India, Wadlis, Raja Kumari, Brodha V and Bhayanak Maut.

The 10th edition of the Pune event will be held from November 29 to December 1.

This follows soon after the Meghalaya edition which will be on November 1 and 2 next.

BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender has today become synonymous with giving its fans the happiest weekend of the year with performances on a grand scale, favourite artists, a lot of new music to discover, and a lot of great vibes.

Over the last decade, over 800 global and Indian artists have performed at packed venues, making it one of the most awaited music experiences of the year.

“Since our festival’s journey began in 2010, BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender has programmed extraordinary talent for an equally passionate and growing audience of music fans,” said Supreet Kaur, festival director.

The festival began as a home for indie musicians to connect with their fans like never before.

Over 10 years, it’s been surreal to witness the festival grow in the most organic way – both sonically and as a community.

“With over 82 per cent of our lineup making their festival debut this year, we hope to see fans, old and new to celebrate this decade of happiness with us,” added Kaur.

Anshuman Goenka, BACARDÍ Director Marketing, India said, “Ten years ago, BACARDÍ’s passion for music and our inherent legacy of creating immersive experiences, led to a creative partnership with OML, giving India one of its first music festivals ever – BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender.”

“Fondly referred to as India’s Happiest Music festival, our commitment to providing unique experiences and showcasing true talent, remains undeterred,” he added.

“In the last ten years, BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender has successfully brought independent music to mainstream culture and we are confident that in the next ten years, the community will grow bigger and stronger,” he further said.

“This year, we look forward to celebrating the festival, our fans and the spirit of always doing what moves us,” he also added.

The pre-sale of tickets for both editions that opened on August 1 was a great success.

Notably, Pune throwback tickets sold out in just three minutes and pre-sale tickets for both cities selling out in a couple of hours.
