Boxout Weekender is a three-day festival that celebrates the anniversary of boxout.fm, an Indian online independent music community radio station, which was launched in April 2017. The line-up is entirely made up of resident DJs and artists with shows on the station. Singer/rapper Delhi Sultanate, jazz drummer and composer Sarathy Korwar and electronic music producers Spryk and Suchi are among the acts that have played at previous editions.
Since 2018, Boxout Weekender has been broadcast live on the radio station and on its official YouTube channel. The festival has been on hiatus since 2020.
