Echoes of Earth
Taglined “India’s greenest music festival”, Echoes of Earth is a multi-genre two-day event that celebrates the environment. Launched in 2016, it features stages and installations made from recycled and up-cycled materials. No plastic or flex materials are used and a sapling is planted for every ticket sold.
Around 150 artists have performed across the festival’s four editions so far. The headliners have included international and Indian electronic acts such as Arjun Vagale, FKJ, Kohra and Mathame. Among the activities and attractions are the solar-powered Big Tree stage, a flea market selling organic and sustainable products, and music and wellness workshops.
Over the years, Echoes of Earth has won several live event industry awards including the 2019 EEMAX Global Award for Best Stage And Environmental Design and the 2020 WOW Asia Award for Festival of the Year – Art/Culture/Lifestyle. The festival, which was on hiatus in 2020 and 2021 owing to the pandemic, will return in December. The line-up will feature over 40 artists.
