Asia’s largest Bollywood Music Festival will kickstart its second season in New Delhi at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Grounds on 27th and 28th January 2018.
Think you know Bollywood? Think you can croon to a number of songs right from the old to the new? Does Bhangra sound more appealing than Jazz? Then you’ve got to make your way to the third edition, and the first of the second season, of Gaana Bollywood Music Project, this January in New Delhi. With a stellar first season that featured two shows (one in Mumbai and the other in Delhi), Gaana BMP roped in over 80 million digital views and over 50,000 festival fans in attendance.
Known as Asia’s largest Bollywood Music Festival, it is organized by Event Capital (A Laqshya Media Group Company) and TM Talent Management. Seeking to be the ultimate Bollywood event for fans, this multi-genre, multi-stage festival will host over 50 performing acts! With this much in store, you have to make sure you book your tickets on BookMyShow, here.
Gaana BMP, Delhi, will be headlined by two of India’s most dynamic musicians and performers, Farhan Akhtar with his band Farhan Live and the multi-faceted talent mogul, Vishal Bhardwaj. Some of the other highlights include Amitabh Bhattacharya (performing for the first time at Gaana BMP), Shalmali Kholgade, The Suryansh Project, and many more.
Filmmaker and singer-composer, Vishal Bhardwaj said, “In India, people may forget a film, but if a song becomes popular, they always remember it. Music is food for my soul. Gaana Bollywood Music Project in Delhi is going to be an amazing experience.”
Farhan Akhtar said, “I am looking forward to performing for my fans in our capital. Playing in Delhi is special as the audience always gives us a lot of love. To connect with them through my music is very exciting and this time it’s happening at the Gaana Bollywood Music Project along with other performers. Fun times await.”
Swaroop Banerjee (CEO, Event Capital) said, “When we launched BMP in October at the Jio Gardens, Mumbai, it was the first time the entire Bollywood music family came together to deliver an inimitable music festival in the heart of Mumbai. We took a bold step within 6 months and delivered a larger Bollywood music festival in March at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Delhi.
Two editions in the very first season saw us garnering over 80 million digital eyeballs and over 50,000 festival fans. Gaana BMP Season 2 is a winning step for us. My partner Tarsame Mittal and his crew are curating never seen before stage acts. Over 50 performers will take up two main stages. The festival installations are going to be larger than life and the eclectic F&B experience has been curated keeping in mind the family audiences in Delhi. Gaana BMP fans will see a collaborative mix of Bollywood, Punjabi, Hip Hop, Sufi, Romance, Folk, Funk and Pop making this the only complete multi-genre Bollywood music ensemble anywhere in the world and it gives me immense pride to showcase our own music in the heart of the Indian Capital.”
