Bangalore is set to host India’s first ecologically-crafted music festival this November. The ‘Echoes of Earth’ is a festival that celebrates the Earth and music. With a perfect combination of international and homegrown artists, the festival is something that you should not miss. The three uniquely crafted stages will be filled with a wide variety of different genres of music including rock, jazz, electronica, and much more.
The Echoes of Earth will be held at the Embassy International Riding School, Bangalore on the 26th and 27th of November and will span over 150 acres of pristine nature.
