Global Indie Festival
Global Indie Festival is an annual event that was conceptualised by Exodus Events and launched in 2012 in Chennai, a city renowned for its rich cultural heritage and a particular fondness for the performing arts. It was initiated with a modest vision aimed at introducing the city to a different musical experience and showcasing the talents of musicians from around the world, as well as those from India. Over time, it has evolved into a festival often described as a global music celebration with a local essence.
This festival features approximately 20 artists from diverse countries, each bringing their unique and eclectic sounds to the stage. The inspiration for Global Indie Festival can be traced to the music festivals of Europe, frequently hosted by smaller villages, where entire communities come together to revel in the magic of music, the exceptional skills of musicians, and the indomitable spirit of the people. The festival spans a wide array of musical genres, encompassing funk, pop-rock, fusion, hip-hop, folk, blues, jazz, and many more, ensuring that it caters to all tastes and preferences. In essence, Global Indie Festival transcends genre and style boundaries, making it an inclusive and unifying experience for music enthusiasts from all walks of life.
