Mahindra Open Drive
Mahindra Open Drive
A travelling, outdoor festival “with music at its heart, infused with culture and adventure”, Mahindra Open Drive takes place between December and February. The inaugural edition of the day-long event was held in February 2022 at Camp Max, which overlooks Lake Kalote in the outskirts of the Mumbai-Pune highway. It featured performances by Indian independent acts such as Benny Dayal, Kamakshi Khanna, Peter Cat Recording Co., Raghav Meattle, Voctronica and When Chai Met Toast. Attendees could go kayaking in the lake and try their hand at activities such as pottery.

How To Get There
How to Reach Mumbai
1. By Air: Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, formerly known as Sahar International Airport, is the primary international airport serving the Mumbai Metropolitan Area. It is situated about 30 km from CST Station. The domestic airport is in Vile Parle East. Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji has two terminals. Terminal 1 or the domestic terminal used to be the old airport called Santacruz Airport, and some locals still refer to it by this name. Terminal 2 or the international terminal replaced the old terminal 2, formerly known as the Sahar Airport. The Santa Cruz Domestic Airport is about 4.5 km from the international airport. There are regular direct flights to Mumbai easily available from other airports. Buses and cabs are easily available from the airport to reach desired destinations.
2. By Rail: Mumbai is very well connected to rest of India by train. The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is the most popular station in Mumbai. Trains to Mumbai are available from all major railway stations in India. Some important Mumbai trains to note are the Mumbai Rajdhani, Mumbai Duronto and the Konkan-Kanya Express.
3. By Road: Mumbai is well-connected with national highways and expressways. Getting to Mumbai by bus is the most economical for individual tourists. Government-run, as well as private buses, operate daily services. Travelling to Mumbai by car is a common choice made by travellers, and hailing a cab or hiring a private car is an efficient way of exploring the city.

Items & Accessories to Carry
1. Summer clothes, to beat the humidity in Mumbai.
2. A sturdy water bottle, if the festival has refillable water stations, and if the venue allows bottles to be taken inside the festival site. Hey, let’s do our bit for the environment, shall we?
3. Comfortable footwear. Sneakers (a perfect option if it’s not likely to rain) or boots (but make sure they are worn in). You need to keep those feet tappin’ and those heads bangin’. On that note, carry a bandana or a scrunchie to avoid tressy accidents with your fellow festival goers.
