  1. This weekend, the city of Pune saw thousands of young music enthusiasts pouring in to catch their favourite artists at the 10th edition of the NH7 Weekender - one of Indiaâs biggest music festivals. Many such groups use budget hotel bookings as a way to affordably and conveniently plan their stays - although several of them were in for a rude shock as the festival kicked off this Friday. âI booked this hotel 4 months prior,â explained Simran, a guest of Gurugram-based hotel chain FabHotels. âA lot of people come to Pune for the Weekender so I wanted to plan my stay before the world did so I could book with convenience and within budget. I had a confirmed booking since Day 1 but I still called them on 24th November to double-check. Everything seemed fine. Got an email and a text on 27th with further details about my stay.â The trouble began early this Friday, when customers such as Simran arrived at their hotels, expecting a fresh room to use as a basecamp for a fun, exciting and long-awaited festival. Upon arrival however, FabHotel customers were appalled to find out that their bookings were fraudulently cancelled. Caption: A screenshot taken during what was supposed to be check-in time. Notice how the booking is accepted, then almost immediately cancelled with no intimation. Reminds me of certain cab drivers. âI get to the hotel and turns out it's not a FabHotel anymore. The guy at the reception says I don't have a booking there. They ask me to call Fab, and talk to them.â What ensued was a customer-service nightmare. âFrom noon to around 4:30 in the evening, I constantly keep calling the helpline,â she continues. âThere's a 10-15 minute hold. It connects, and I explain my situation to the executive. He says that my booking was changed and he has shared the updated information with me. I check my email and it's the exact address that was originally shared. I'm obviously furious so I tell him this, and he hangs up on me. I call again. Another 10 mins hold. I connect with another executive and I start from scratch. He is confused so he puts me on hold again. Call drops. I call again. This goes on for 4 hours. Rinse and repeat.â A great number of attendees of the music festival could be seen dragging their suitcases in search of alternative accommodation options. Most of these were expensive due to high demand, forcing customers to spend an extra 50% of what they had previously budgeted - a truly painful cost to incur during the month-end crunch. FabHotels responded by asking customers to âtreat this as an exception.â ââKindly treat this as an exceptionâ is really too much to ask for. Also, this has happened to a bunch of other people so how many exceptions is FabHotel expecting the world to made? I would really like to know,â fumes Simran. FabHotels eventually produced a statement when prompted - although the lack of clarity is telling. âWe disassociate with some of our partners if they do not match up to our quality,â said Anupam Sharma, a representative of FabHotels. When questioned over accommodating the customers who made bookings in advance, FabHotels had no response. However, Stay At Home, a former partner with FabHotels, said that it wasnât a quality issue, but that they did not make payments in time that forced the apartment owners to stop working with the institution. âThey defaulted numerous payments. They were focusing on discounts and not giving us the money in time. We stopped giving them booking about six months ago,â said a service apartment owner. As of now, FabHotels currently advertises âupto 60% offâ its bookings. These issues were primarily concentrated in Viman Nagar, an upscale residential neighbourhood in East Pune which was the prime choice for festival attendees due to its proximity to the venue and its large concentration of hotels. âWe had a group who made an advance payment of Rs 29,000 through FabHotels but we had no idea about it. About 5-6 groups have come to us today,â said a service apartment owner in Viman Nagar. The hospitality industry in India is worth above Rs. 7,000 Cr, 70% of which comprises of budget hotels. Several new chains have sprung up in recent years, such as Oyo and Treebo - both of which have secured millions of dollars in funding from Chinese and Japanese investors. FabHotels themselves have raised Rs. 54 Crore from Goldman Sachs, Accel Partners and Qualcomm earlier this year - although it seems like that money isnât being used responsibly. Caption: FabHotels has recently been pushing on social media marketing - roping in popular influencers to showcase their hotels. âThe least they could do is give us alternate accommodation. Or maybe just not scam people like this? That'd help. You cannot ruin my weekend and ask me to stay fab,â concluded Simran. View the full article
  2. We Indians are very proud of our festivals and how we celebrate them. That's perhaps why even when Indians move out of their homeland, their festivities also tag along to the new geolocation they call home. So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that India seeks no inspiration from the popular La Tomatina Festival of Spain. That's because India has its own desi version of the festival but the only major difference is that instead of tomatoes, this festival is celebrated using fresh gobar or cow dung. Yeah, holy shit! So in the southern village of Gumatapura in Tamil Nadu, an annual festival named Gore Habba is celebrated post-Diwali wherein people play with cow dung because they believe it brings 'good health'. Let them Festive Faeces Fly! Cow dung fight in India brings 'good health'https://t.co/X7hPHucK6n pic.twitter.com/ImWQy4IlVy — RT (@RT_com) November 5, 2019 In a video shared by RT, we can see how the villagers are jumping into a pool of cow dung and making merry smeared in dung, as happy revellers look on and celebrate. The locals believe that cow dung has healing properties and can cure several diseases, and hence the involvement of cow excreta doesn't bother them or stop them from participating. One reveller named Prabhu told RT that, “Cow dung is very natural and has a lot of medicinal benefits. Others might say if we throw cow dung at each other we will get some infections or even some disease. But with the trust of our god Beereshwara, we are playing in the cow dung, so nothing happens to us.” He also shared that the festival promotes inclusivity, as anybody from any religion and caste can participate in this festival, though no women were seeing participating in the festival. Any takers for the festival? View the full article
  3. While some of us do whatever we can to save street dogs, Nepal goes a step further and celebrates them though a festival. Yes, that's right! A five day festival called 'Kukoor Tihar' (festival of dogs) has begun this week and our Diwali, also Sunday, marked the second day of the festival. The entire festival is dedicated to dogs and honouring their presence and I think it's time we learn a thing or two from the Nepalese. (BCCL) India is quite apathetic towards animals in general and we don't have the empathy required to give our street animals or even our wildlife a second thought. Case in point, Diwali this year, where after the government made it mandatory to not burst crackers before 8pm and after 10pm, numerous people still indulged in it, risking the safety of street dogs around them. Apart from the harmful effects fireworks bring to the environment, they're also both physically and psychologically detrimental towards animals, especially street dogs who live on roads. But people didn't care much about their presence and after incessant fireworks on Diwali night, many dogs were left shivering out of fear. (c)Nepal Travel Adventure Nepal, on the other hand, celebrate their dogs in a wholesome way. In fact, they worship their dogs during the Tihar festival, while garlanding them, putting a tikka on them and giving them food. For the Nepalese, dogs are sacrosanct because of religious purposes. They happen to believe dogs are messengers of Yamraj (the God of death) and the ceremony conducted for the dogs is an attempt to appease the God. Both street dogs and pets become a part of the festival and have an entire week dedicated to them. Here's a glimpse from the festival: Kayle, bcause calling him 'kaley' could be racist!? He's the grandson of kuchu & still lives with us. Has his bih living with us too, Sweety. She might be due in few months. His mom aka Kuchu's daughter 'Motie' went poila after giving birth to Kayle.... he balls nmw.#kukurtihar pic.twitter.com/Aju3A3JEQq — pukay (@pukusubedy) October 27, 2019 Acknowledging all the joy she gives in our life â¤ï¸#kukurtihar #humanbestfriend pic.twitter.com/NIxai3lvqG — Priyanka Budhathoki (@bpriyanka111) October 27, 2019 Kukur Tihar is tommorow.

Each year, on 2nd day of 5-day Diwali celebrations in Nepal, they celebrates #KukurTihar or “day of dogs” by worshipping man's four-legged friend https://t.co/H9Kh8DOltB — JyotsnaDeviMardarajHarichandan #Odisha (@jyotsnadevi33) October 26, 2019 Back in the Netherlands for Deepavali; celebrated Kukur Tihar or Dog Festival as per Nepali tradition today putting tika on the forehead of our dogs, garlanding then with marigolds and giving them treats pic.twitter.com/dBwXWP9wVZ — Venu Rajamony (@venurajamony) October 26, 2019 Anyways here's a photo of my dog in #KukurTihar pic.twitter.com/cBEQ5sGiLi — à¤à¤¯à¥à¤· राठमाननà¥à¤§à¤° (@AayushMndhr) October 27, 2019 Happy kukur tihar!

Even though cows are worshipped and cared for religious and economical purposes, we should develop a sense of empathy towards the four legged and give them equal respect and admiration. Nepal is a good example of the same and maybe we can learn how to be more empathetic towards animals from them. View the full article
  4. Most of us grew up listening to a set list of musicians whose music we still follow. While not every guy would have listened to artists like Katy Perry, they were exposed to her music either through their girlfriends or sisters before she became someone they all had a crush on. And who would miss a chance to go see their childhood crush perform her chart-topping music? After multiple successful launch events and pop-up shows in India, OnePlus decided to further show their appreciation for their biggest audience by organising a music festival unlike any other. OnePlus Music Festival has one of the most prominent line-ups amongst any concert India has seen, after Justin Beiber and Coldplay. View this post on Instagram Tickets live now! A mix of prime international and Indian artists in a music setting never seen before in India. This is an immersive music experience curated and designed by OnePlus. Watch @katyperry, @dualipa, @ameet_trivedi, @vizdumb, @thelocaltrain and @aswekeepsearching live at #OnePlusMusicFestival. Get your tickets now using the link in our bio! #opmf ð¸ð©‍ð¤ð§ A post shared by OnePlus India (@oneplus_india) on Sep 16, 2019 at 11:35pm PDT The festival which will take place at the DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai on November 16, 2019, is being headlined by pop-star Katy Perry. But that is not all, as the event will see the perfect mix between Hindi and English music catering to all music lovers. Along with Katy Perry, another big star that will be up on the stage is New Rules singer Dua Lipa. She is a new yet big name in the pop music industry which makes this a huge attraction for millennials. The line-up also includes names like Amit Trivedi, Ritviz, The Local Train and Aswekeep Searching which makes this event bigger than anything else in the country. While there is no news on who will be hosting the festival or in what order these artists will perform, but with the festival just a month away, people are really excited. The tickets are on sale and range from Rs 3500 for the bronze section, all the way up to Rs 7500 for the gold. There are also separate areas for Super Fans and VIPs but those tickets are not available on Insider. A lot of the sections are already sold out and the rest are running out fast. So, as the OnePlus Music Festival approaches, are you ready to see Katy Perry roar on stage?
  5. You have to admit that at times, festivals do seem like an exaggerated excuse to bring our entire clan together under a single roof. Amidst loud conversations, elaborate feasts and unending rounds of fun and frolic, festivals turn into a celebration of togetherness in many ways. Yet, if there's one thing that we can't overlook about every festival we celebrate in India, it's that all of them hold meaning and a reason behind them. Think of any festival, and you will find that there is actually a reason why we celebrate it. (c) Twitter Just the same way, the holy month of Ramzan has culminated into this day-long celebration, as the Muslim community gets together to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr today. Eid-ul-Fitr, which means the "Festival of the Breaking of the Fast", marks the end of Ramzan, and is celebrated all over the world by the followers of Islam. (c) Twitter Many might not know this, but Eid-ul-Fitr is actually a festival that is celebrated over a period of three days. On the morning of Eid, the entire family gets together over breakfast, which also serves as their first day-time meal after a month! Then, after visiting the mosque, a great feast is laid out for everybody to enjoy together amidst greetings of Eid Mubarak floating around, and demands of Eidee interrupting every other conversation. (c) Twitter However, there is more to this sweet festival, which is robust and community-centred in a lot of ways. While most of us look forward to all the good food and feasting that is synonymous to Eid, we often miss out on this underlying goodness to the festival. More than anything else, Ramzan, followed by Eid-ul-Fitr, is also about giving to others and sharing with others. Therefore, charity becomes an important part of the Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations. (c) Getty Images Many Muslims happily choose to donate different kinds of food and material goods to the poor. This form of charity is called sadagah al-fitr, and is often undertaken in the hopes to ensure that everyone who is observing the month of Ramadan fasting can enjoy a special meal on the occasion of Eid. (c) Twitter From new clothes to heartfelt good wishes and blessings from elders, as well as all the food, feastings and frolic that accompany this festival, Eid-ul-Fitr is indeed a happy occasion meant for one and all who wish to join the celebrations. Here's wishing everyone Eid Mubarak on this happy occasion.
  6. More often than not, the busy travelling schedule of the members of the Indian cricket team does not allow the Men in Blue to stay at home during major festivals, surrounded by their loved ones, their friends and family. A couple of years ago, the captain of the Indian side, Virat Kohli, while sending his wishes for the festival of colours in 2017, he said that his Holi would be spent on the road as the roster was going to Patna for a series. Happy Holi everybody. Have a great day today ðð¼ð. Please make sure no harm is done to the animals on the streets. God Bless all. pic.twitter.com/3a3NbUib0a — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) March 13, 2017 Holi 2019, however, could not have come at a better time. There was a small gap between the tiring ODI series against the visiting and the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the festival fell on such a day that all the cricketers of the Indian squad were at home, happily celebrating the festival of 'good over evil' with their loved ones. "Happy Holi to everyone! Let's celebrate the vibrant hues, the beautiful relationships and the joyous laughter," Virat Kohli wrote in a Tweet. Shikhar Dhawan, who is currently in India preparing for the IPL, shared an emotional post on Instagram. While celebrating the festival with his mother, 'Gabbar' expressed his joy of watching his kids get in on the fun, thousands of miles away, in Australia. View this post on Instagram My festivals brighten up a little extra thanks to these colourful memories. Missing my munchkins a lot! Happy holi from our family to yours. ð #HappyHoli #HoliCelebrations A post shared by Shikhar Dhawan (@shikhardofficial) on Mar 21, 2019 at 1:19am PDT “My festivals brighten up a little extra thanks to these colourful memories. Missing my munchkins a lot,” said the Delhi Capitals skipper. “Happy holi from our family to yours.” Mayank Agarwal, another athlete who had a great start to his international cricketing career in the first days of 2019 in his debut against the Australians on their home-turf, also shared a vibrant photo from yesterday's celebration: Here's wishing everyone a Happy Holi! May you have a colourful year ahead!#HappyHoli pic.twitter.com/S3HLk5cf3u — Mayank Agarwal (@mayankcricket) March 21, 2019 Some of the major franchises of the IPL too sent their best wishes to the world on the joyous occasion: Yeh din hai rangon ka, yeh din hai khushiyon ka! #HappyHoli, Royals family! #HallaBol pic.twitter.com/TCY6oUExkt — Rajasthan Royals (@rajasthanroyals) March 21, 2019 Bina Gabbar ke Holi bhi koi Holi hai? ð#HappyHoli #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals pic.twitter.com/EewQPoc51G — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) March 21, 2019 Saareyan nu Holi diyan lakh lakh vadaiyaan. ð¨ Here's wishing everyone a very #HappyHoli from the KXIP family. ♥#SaddaPunjab pic.twitter.com/6pPAx5yAcm — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) March 21, 2019 Let the colour for this Holi be ð!#HappyHoli and have a safe one!#KKRHaiTaiyaar pic.twitter.com/CwbsBwmevG — KolkataKnightRiders (@KKRiders) March 21, 2019
  7. The festival of colours is upon us. According to Hindu mythology, Holi symbolizes the victory of good and the end of evil. Celebrated with 'rang and bhang', there is a hint of craziness in the air around which all is forgiven and new friends are made. We love to keep our smartphones at home for once, get out into the streets with packs of colourful power (herbal, hopefully) in our pockets, and paint each others' faces with different shades. It seems as if the fondness for the festival has grown beyond Indian borders as international cricketers have been found to be enjoying looking like a rainbow, plastered with vibrant Holi colours. In 2017, former Australian cricketers-turned-commentators Brett Lee and Mathew Hayden were visiting India for a Test series between the two top teams of the game at that time when Hayden tweeted this photo of him and his former teammate, completely drenched and dipped in colours. Messed up and loving it!!! #HappyHoli @BrettLee_58 pic.twitter.com/N4pEtyIDl2 — Matthew Hayden AM (@HaydosTweets) March 13, 2017 Righty batsman, Michael Clarke too was in the country back then and had decided to spend the day with some of the local families. Dressed in the perfect costume for the occasion, Clarke posed for this shot in a white kurta. Happy holi!! Enjoying celebrating with some local families. ðð»ð pic.twitter.com/qlYS83pnb9 — Michael Clarke (@MClarke23) March 13, 2017 Windies wicket-keeper Denesh Ramdin also seems to be a big fan of the festival. He decided to show his affection for the tradition in a mild manner with his family. Playing holi today with the family pic.twitter.com/H6GPAa6cah — Denesh Ramdin (@shotta8080) March 13, 2017 Aussie allrounder Glenn Maxwell was also unable to control his temptation and joined in on the celebration with his Kings XI Punjab teammates during the 2016 Holi at his hotel. Turns out Maxwell is also a seasoned 'Bhangra' dancer. Happy #Holi! A special edition of Maxi's Blog coming soon! pic.twitter.com/K6xgRhQkS0 — cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) March 24, 2016 Holi seemed to be really popular amongst the Kiwis as well, all the way back in 2011 when the entire New Zealand roster threw the festive colours at each other in the stands during a practice session.
  8. When the 'Gully Boy' trailer dropped, no one had a doubt about the fate of the movie because when you combine the vision of Zoya Akhtar and the brilliance of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, you get nothing short of perfection from it. The movie opened at the ongoing Berlin Film Festival and in a record time of just 4 minutes, all the tickets for the premiere were sold out. Needless to say, the audience cannot stop raving about this masterpiece, calling it Ranveer's finest work till date. #GullyBoy is an excellent, excellent film! There is no better director than #ZoyaAkhtar at the moment. An absolute must watch. @RanveerOfficial @aliaa08 #Berlinale2019 — Aryaman Bhatnagar (@aryaman89) February 9, 2019 About #GullyBoy I'm gonna say something. There are yearly 400 movies at the Berlinale. I choose every edition to see 30-35. I chose Gully Boy because it was from India ð®ð³ and they are making great movies in the last years. I had no clue what the movie was about. What a present ⤠— Carlos Grau (@cineypoesia) February 10, 2019 Ranveer and Alia ka 'time aa gaya hai' and everyone is convinced it's the best movie of the year. #ApnaTimeAayega starts on screen and the audience matches the beats with their rhythmic applause #GullyBoyInBerlin #gullyboy - that says what this movie means to today's generation — Samir Bhamra (@phizzical) February 9, 2019 Watched the world premier of #GullyBoy @berlinale .

Trust me, it's just sick. ♥ï¸ð #GullyBoy #Berlinale #RanveerSingh #AliaBhatt — Ranjeet Devckar (@devckar) February 10, 2019 The movie releases this Friday, so make sure that your Valentine's Day plans are set in stone about this movie date that needs to be on your calendar for sure.
  9. The Sunburn Festival 2018 is on right now and we're having a blast. In the midst of all the amazing music, we got a chance to interview the legendary Armin Van Buuren. We asked him a lot of questions and he had answers for everything. Not just that, he was pretty candid about what he likes. The one question we thought would have him stumped was about his favourite Indian DJ. But, when you've been in the game as long as Armin has, one thing is for sure, talent recognizes talent. He had a straightforward answer for the question. No, it's not one of the people you would think. Here are snippets from the interview: Q: Who are you crushing on? AVB: Sandra Bullock in Bird Box. Q: A rumour about you that isn't true? AVB: That I earned $15 million in one year. And that, I have a private jet. I don't! View this post on Instagram A post shared by Armin van Buuren (@arminvanbuuren) on Dec 30, 2018 at 6:20pm PST Q: The funniest pickup line used on you? AVB: How would you like to do an extended set at my place? Q: Who's your favourite Indian DJ? AVB: Ritviz. In fact, Armin loves Ritviz so much he even included his song 'Barso' in his set. Now that's some compliment!
  10. Yes, it's a music festival and the number one reason to visit Sunburn is for the music. But sometimes, just sometimes, it can get a little too much, right? Don't worry, you won't have to leave the festival if you want a little break. There is a bunch of other stuff you can do there too. Here are a few of the activities you can partake in if you're looking for a break from the music: The Monster Remember how much fun we used to have jumping around a bouncy castle when we were kids? Too bad we grew up and aren't allowed to get on the bouncy castle anymore. Luckily for us though Sunburn is introducing us to the Monster. Source: Sunburn Festival A 300-meter castle with 40 obstacles that would be every kid's and even every adults dream. If you ever wanted to feel like a kid again, this is the perfect opportunity. Aqua Roller So what if it's winter. There's never a bad time for a quick dip in the pool. The days are quite pleasant even in December in Pune and you may come across multiple opportunities to enjoy a quick dip. Source: Sunburn Festival Not just any dip, a dip in the Aqua roller. The inflatable rollers make this pool all the more better. Kick Consider yourself to be as good as David Beckham? Think you have the precision to score a free kick from anywhere in the attacking third? Well, with Kick, you get a chance to prove your mettle. Source: Sunburn Festival This amazing game combines darts with football for a unique opportunity to have some fun. If your legs haven't started shaking to the music yet, perhaps you could get them moving here? Hot Air Baloon How many of us have actually been in a hot air balloon? We've certainly seen people flying in hot air balloons on the television. But, being in one yourself is a completely different experience we're sure. There's nothing like seeing the entire Sunburn Festival from high up in the sky. If you are an adventure seeker, be sure to give this one a shot. Twin Cycle There will eventually come a point when you're tired of walking. This is where the twin cycle comes into play. If everyone got regular cycles, it would have been fun too. But, with the twin cycle you and a friend get to cycle around together. Source: Sunburn Festival And if you're worried about looking good while cycling around the festival, don't. The LED lights have got you covered. It will be a ride to remember. We promise.
  11. Year-end festivities are around the corner as we approach the last few days of 2018. RED FM's Riders Music Festival kick-starts the party season for merrymakers at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi from December 22. The two-day festival identifies itself as a one-stop destination for both the biking and the non-biking community. After last year's shenanigan's, the set is even bigger than the previous edition. The Weekender promises to be an action-packed event with multiple stage setups that offer high-quality live music, food, beverages, adventure, motorcycles and much more. As for the music aficionados, here's what they can look forward to: Mame Khan © YouTube Mame Khan is known for his traditional folk and Sufi songs.

  12. Have you ever been on a journey without plugging your earphones in or turning your car stereo up to the maximum? Have you ever had a moment where your feet just start tapping to the rhythm of a song when you visited a local cafe, bar or restaurant? We all have! I am sure my questions will help you re-live those select experiences that left a resounding mark on your soul. Such is the magic of music and the very pulse of it that intensifies even more while on the go, as it seeps through and makes one lose themselves in the surroundings. Nobody can understand this better than bikers, who are modern nomads thriving on their love for adventure and seeking a quintessential wisdom through their journeys. Bikes and music fit like puzzle pieces and is therefore the chosen expression of rebels and game-changers since the 50s. Across the world, the trend didn't take much time to catch up, given that we all felt hypnotized with the edginess that the biking culture offers. There are some songs that complement the thrill of the road. From Steppenwolfe's 'Born to be wild' to Roger McGuinn's 'Easy Rider' to Jim Morrison's 'Riders on the storm', every song identifies the adventurous attitude of non-conformist bikers. There are many Bollywood songs too which are centred around travel and biking. It's a fact that music can either make or break your mood and if done right, it leaves you with a thirst for the unchartered territory. When we talk about biking, it is not just adventure that brings bikers closer, it is also about catching just a fleeting glimpse of what is beyond the horizon. Every biker swears by the thrill of unraveling the unknown, a road that brings them together and the ecstasy of blood pumping through their veins. So how about a platform for them to come together, connect and share their unique moments on the road with one another? A live music festival for bike riders is what exactly is on offer to fulfil this demand. The amount of passion shown by bikers last year at the Riders Music Festival sealed the deal and this year we are back with a bang. To be able to let out, relax, have some delicious food and listen to your favourite musicians and showcase your passion through breath-taking stunts, will make for a wholesome experience. There has been an upsurge of live music in India and today, people are increasingly showing interest in the joy that comes with attending live gigs. We all know that no road trip is done right without a ready playlist, a bunch of crazy friends and songs that bring the past to life and weave your future. Today, it has become extremely popular to travel in order to attend renowned music festivals in different parts of the world. People cherish these experiences for a life-time! A country like India which is vibrant and rich in a myriad of beautiful locations - the heritage, people and their culture needs to be cherished more often. As bikers criss-cross this enchanting land across places like Manali, Spiti, Leh-Ladakh and Srinagar, touring the deserts of Osian, exploring the foothills of Himalayas, as they go along. They take a part of this diversified culture with them, establishing unity and oneness amongst fellow aficionados. The biking community has also created awareness for various issues like drug abuse, organ donation, HIV, road safety, child abuse and much more through their motorbike rallies. Through Riders Music Festival, we too want to promote road safety and also make sure that such a bonding of oneness continues to flourish as we nurture it through our mutual love for music. This year RMF showcases a perfect line-up of contemporary musicians with different genres of music. From Nucleya's electronic numbers, Lucky Ali's husky Bollywood charm to Mame Khan's folk music, it's going to be a blast! Adding jazz to the line -up, we have Shirley Setia's filmy vocals with Divine's new-age rapping and a heavy dose of comedy with Bhuvan Bam. Strategically placed as the weekender before Christmas amidst Delhi's winter, RMF will bring the best of everything! From superbikes to custom bikes, fine dining restaurants to Delhi's lip smacking street food, there will be a confluence of music that is unparalleled. So, get ready to rock and roll and also watch some wheelies being popped by stuntmen on 22nd and 23rd of December at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi. I hope you wheelie like it!

  14. India's biggest electronic music festival 'Sunburn' is a place where the biggest names in the EDM world come and perform for thousands of people. However one thing the festival does better than most is provide a platform for Indian artists to showcase their talents and go toe to toe with the international scene. We all know about the Nucleya's and DIVINE's of the Indian music scene. But, here are some other Indian artists we're excited to see at the Sunburn Festival this year: Ritviz © Facebook/Ritviz The music Ritviz produces is heavily influenced by his classical musical background. He's one of the most promising young artists in the country right now and if you haven't heard his mesmerizing sounds yet, the Sunburn Festival 2018 is the perfect place to begin. Sartek © Facebook/Sartek Sarthak Sardana was the first Indian DJ to be featured on Revealed Recordings. He's been the opening act for some really big names in the music industry including Martin Garrix and Justin Bieber when they performed in India. With performances alongside such megastars already under his belt, we're expecting something amazing from him for sure. Progressive Brothers © Facebook/Progressive Brothers The Progressive Brothers is an Electronic/Dance Duo act consisting of Sunny Sharma and Karan Bhalla. When it comes to electronic music in India, you can't get far without speaking about these brilliant performers. If you've ever been for one of their shows, you'll be pumped to hear them again for sure! What's more, The Progressive Brothers have performed with DJ Snake in the past. Who knows, an encore might just be around the corner... Anish Sood ©: Facebook/Anish Sood A mechanical engineer, Anish's first brush with electronic music was A State Of Trance. He's another one who has performed with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Tiesto, and Afrojack. He's been associated with Sunburn on multiple occasions in the past and we can only hope that this time is going to be bigger and better than ever before.
  15. There's nothing like some good music to end the year on a high. That's exactly what you can expect at the Sunburn Festival 2018. With some of the best DJ's in the world in attendance, it's a show like you've never seen before. Unless you've been to a Sunburn Festival in the past, that is. For some of you who still have no idea who's performing at the Sunburn Festival 2018 we've put together a list of 5 artists we're stoked to see. Why? They're absolutely amazing that's why… Alan Walker Who better to start off this list than the great Alan Walker. If you don't remember his name, you'll certainly remember one of his biggest hits, Faded. But, apart from loving him for creating some of the best music we've ever heard, we can't help but hate him a little. Simply because he's just 21. Damnit! 21 and number 36 on the list of the best DJ's in the world. What were you doing at 21? Still figuring stuff out, right? Nucleya As far as Indian DJ's go, there aren't many who can match up to the man! From the time “Akkad Bakkad” started him on the path of success to the time “Bass Rani” shot him to superstardom, Nucleya has come a long way. Tota Myna, his latest album, is another great production by this artist. Apart from this, he's performed with some of the biggest names in the music business. So, whatever he has planned for Sunburn, we're sure it's going to be spectacular. DJ Snake “Turn Down For What.” Yeah, that was the song that turned DJ Snake into a global sensation. Today, his trademark sounds stand out from the rest. For example, Taki Taki is ruling the airwaves right now. Enjoy... You can expect this and a lot more from DJ Snake at the Sunburn Festival 2018. He is the headliner after all. Axwell ^ Ingrosso Axwell ^ Ingrosso are among the top DJ performers in the world right now. They are one of the most seasoned performers at the Sunburn Festival 2018. They are also 2/3rd's of the Swedish House Mafia. My first tryst with Axwell was when he remixed “Teenage Crime.” An already spectacular song, made only better by the great man himself. As for the duo, I just can't get over 'Sun Is Shining.' Here's hoping we get to hear all this and much more at the Sunburn Festival 2018. Divine Lastly, we have the Indian rapper Divine. He's one of the newest names in this list but has the distinction of being one of the few Indian musicians with a movie being made about their life. These are just 5 performers we can't wait to see at the Sunburn Festival 2018. There are sure to be lots of surprises over the 3 days at the end of December (29th to 31st December). We wouldn't miss it for the world.
  16. Sunburn Festival 2018 is almost upon us. While some of us can't get over the fact that 2018 is almost over, for many others, December couldn't have come fast enough. Yes, we get multiple opportunities to listen to music throughout the year but Sunburn isn't just music, it's an experience. One that you'll never forget! © Facebook/Salvatore Ganacci They've made a habit of bringing some of the biggest names in music down to India every December and this year is no different. With heavyweights like DJ Snake, Axwell ^ Ingrosso and Alan Walker confirmed for 2018, it's going to be one hell of a show for sure. But, the one man we're most excited to watch is Salvatore Ganacci. No, he's not as famous as the gentlemen mentioned above but that doesn't mean he isn't just as talented. But, for Salvatore, it's not just about the music. It's about a lot more than that. He's not just a DJ, he's a performer. Are we not making sense? Check this out... Yes, he's not your typical DJ. His performances are so over the top that he's gained notoriety from others in the industry. But, who wants to see a guy just standing there turning some knobs right? We want to see a performance and that's something Salvatore is excellent at. © Facebook/Sunburn Festival So, without further ado, here are 3 things you can expect from Salvatore Ganacci at Sunburn Festival 2018: Eccentricity - There may come a point in the middle of the festival when you start getting bored of DJs doing the same thing over and over again (yes, it happens to everyone). But, that's where Salvatore is going to save you. He doesn't just offer a treat for the ears but one for the eyes as well. © Facebook/Sunburn Festival B2B - Salvatore Ganacci is performing, Sebastian Ingrosso is performing. Is it hoping for too much that there comes a point when one of them crashes the others set? Yes, they've performed together in the past, so why not? Even if not Sebastian, what are the chances Salvatore will crash someone's set? Pretty high, eh? We can hope can't we? © Facebook/Salvatore Ganacci New Mixes - While we'd love to hear some of his hits like Dive, Ride It and Motorspeed 300 km/h, there's nothing that compares to hearing an epic track for the first time. Salvatore is perfectly capable of introducing us to some new sounds at the Sunburn Festival 2018. There's only one way to find out if he does, though. Head to Pune in December 2018. Don't forget to buy tickets! Or you could stand outside the festival grounds guessing who's on stage and what they're doing.
  17. If you don't know what Sunburn Music Festival is yet then it's about time you crawled out from under that rock you've been living under. Quick recap for all those who don't know, Sunburn is amongst the world's biggest music festivals. They have brought down no less than 9 of the world's top 10 DJs over the past couple of years, including the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto, Avicii, Hardwell, Deadmau5, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Afrojack and Nicky Romero. So, without further ado, here are 5 things to look forward to at the Sunburn Festival 2018. The craziest party atmosphere in India - With over 7,00,000 attending over 3 days, you can be assured the energy will last all night long. Couple that with the beautiful Goa weather and you have a recipe for an unforgettable experience. © Sunburn Festival/Facebook The Stages & The Visuals - Let's face it, Sunburn is huge and securing a spot in front of the stage can be hard if not impossible. Worry not though because as usual the good people in the Sunburn production and stage team have got you covered and will save you that arduous journey to the front where you're bound to start with a full beer and end with a few drops left and the rest spilled all over your t-shirt. From insane projections, to the most thrilling pyrotechnics to next generation stage design and a lighting system that will leave you spellbound, Sunburn makes sure everybody has a memorable experience regardless of where you're dancing. All the amazing things outside the mainstage - With a theme of “welcome to paradise”, the festival will once again host India's biggest campsites that will give every camper a comprehensive festival vibe complete with after parties, adventure activities, bonfire, workshops among a host of other activities. In addition, fans can expect a world class experience with the fan village, and F&B by 'Eat Play Love', 30+ experience zones, flea markets, chopper rides, after parties. Talk about upping the game every year. © Sunburn Festival/Facebook The Lineup - We couldn't write this article without talking about the biggest and most hyped aspect of the festival which is of course - the lineup. This year's edition hosts the biggest and best (as per usual) in the EDM scene including DJ Snake, Axwell Ingroso, Armin Van Buuren, Krewella, Salvatore Ganacci and many many more. © Sunburn Festival/Facebook The Best Indian DJ's on the Biggest Stage - No matter how big Sunburn gets, they never forget homegrown talents. Indian DJ's are celebrated and given the biggest platforms to showcase their skills and go toe to toe with the biggest international acts. Your favourite international DJ's might be on the lineup this year but you never know when somebody from your hometown might take that top spot. Sunburn 2018 is shaping up to be yet another memorable edition for the festival and from the looks of it the festival just keeps getting bigger and badder with every passing year. See you there!
  18. The MAMI festival begins today in Mumbai and it is going to be a visual feast for cinema lovers. The festival will have movies from all genres and will feature some great Indian and international movies as well. Here's our pick of 6 films from the festival that we are excited to watch: 1. 'Jonaki'- This movie talks about an octogenarian woman who is in search of love. The movie stars Lolita Chatterjee and Jim Sarbh. 2. 'Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota'- This is going to be the opening movie for the festival so it had to be on the list. The movie is directed by Vasan Bala and is also India's official selection for the Toronto Film Festival. The title is self-explanatory and talks about a man who can literally feel no pain, since he was born with a rare condition called congenital insensitivity to pain. The action-comedy also stars Radhika Madan in the lead. 3. 'Hamid'- This movie tells the tale of a young boy trying to find his father in war-ridden Kashmir. When Hamid learns that '786' represents God, he tries to dial it using his father's old mobile phone. After various attempts, he manages to dial a number which happens to be that of a CPRF 'jawan' called Abhay and a connection is formed. 4. 'Rajma Chawal'- This one is directed by Leena Yadav and stars Rishi Kapoor and Amyra Dastur. The movie is set in the bylanes of Chandni Chowk and focuses on an estranged father-son relationship. © Leena Yadav 5. 'Mehsampur' – This is a Punjabi movie based on the controversial life of Punjabi singer Amar Singh Chamkila who died under mysterious circumstances in the 80's. He was known as the 'Elvis of Punjab'. This movie sounds nothing short of intriguing. The festival has an interesting line up of Indie and international movies, so check it out if you can.

Messi was recently under the critical eye for his recent performances, but that has not deterred his will to continue performing, nor has it affected the love his fans harbour for him. Here's wishing a very long life to this king and let's hope he continues giving us many more reasons to celebrate football.
