Nagaland’s Hornbill Festival has entered into a partnership with Russia’s V-Rox Festival, held every year in Vladivostok.

“We are happy to announce that on this day, the 3rd of August, 2020, that V-Rox festival in Vladivostok, Russia, and Hornbill Music festival, Nagaland, India agree to be festival partners and we shall explore avenues and platforms for the exchange of music, art, and culture, between the two festivals and countries in the days and years ahead,” informed a joint statement issued by the festivals’ organisers.

In a tweet, Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio said, “I am happy to know that V-Rox Festival – Vladivostok, Russia and Hornbill Music Festival Nagaland, India, will be festival partners.”

“Congratulations and I hope the collaboration will foster bilateral interest in music, art, and culture and will be enriching for both the countries,” the tweet added.


In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a likelihood that the 10-day Hornbill Festival would be cancelled this year.
