The big daddy of grand finales is here.
So, we just came to know that India’s Longest Party Marathon is nearly coming to an end, its first season atleast. We are talking about Baleno Wicked Weekends, of course!
And that’s kind of a bummer considering the buzz and excitement it has manifested in the hearts of party-lovers in every major metro city in India, ever since it launched in September last year. The whole idea behind the concept of hosting 40 blockbuster parties across 40 weekends was to reinvent the urban nightlife in India, and boy did they live up to their promise and deliver! If you were anywhere in or around Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Chennai and Kolkata, there isn’t a chance you wouldn’t have heard of the Baleno Wicked Weekend parties.
And now, as they near their 40th weekend, the last of the season, an epic finale is in the making and we have the details for you.
You need to be at the Playboy Club at Samrat Hotel in New Delhi on October 7th, 2017, because Arjun Vagale and BLOT! are going to set the dancefloor ablaze.
No party is complete without good music to let your hair down to. Baleno Wicked Weekends has successfully brought on some of the biggest names in the Indian indie music scene, like Raghu Dixit, Parekh & Singh, Junkyard Groove, Donn Bhat + Passenger Revelator, FuzzCulture, Best Kept Secret, along with electronic music producers like Sound Avtar, Anish Sood, Mojo Jojo, Gurbax and Sartek.
The performing artists also couldn’t help but rave about their experience of performing here:
Raghu Dixit from Raghu Dixit Project said “It was a fantastic experience performing for Baleno Wicked Weekends yet again. The crowd only gets better and it was a blast performing in Delhi. BWW is also a big boost for the Indian independent music scene. I hope it becomes big and soon moves out of small performance venues and gets into big festival like venues treating 1000s of music lovers their favorite artists performing their favorite music!”
“I’m excited to be playing for the Baleno Wicked Weekends. As a property, it’s interesting to see what Baleno is doing with nightlife curation across the country. Looking forward to our collaboration at their first-year anniversary in my home city Delhi along with Arjun Vagale,” said BLOT!
Parekh & Singh had this to say, “Baleno Wicked Weekends brings a much-needed sense of quality to nightlife. We share this belief – that a party needs to be done right and with the same attention to detail as any more “serious” daytime activity!”
In order to make every party count, Baleno Wicked Weekends partnered with the biggest party hotspots in India, like Summerhouse Café – Delhi, High Spirits Café – Pune, Euriska – Pune, Indigo Live – Bengaluru, Bonobo – Mumbai, The Humming Tree – Bengaluru, Someplace Else – Kolkata and Gatsby 2000 – Chennai, among many others. We’ve attended a few of these, and we must say, it’s been fab!
Some big-time influencers have also made their presence felt at these parties, like Ranveer Brar, Miss Malini, Shivi Tondon/Srishti Agarwal (Curious Component), Maria Goretti and Aleena Mackar, among many others.
There were also those who were privileged to something special, courtesy NEXA. At every event, there was a small Lounge area for NEXA users, where NEXA card holders got an envious view of the performances along with F&B services on the house.
Some interesting activities did take place at the venues; a social media contest where people had to post online, from the venue, using #BalenoWickedWeekends. Two winners were then chosen and granted access to each of the events. If you ask us, this was a great way to spread the buzz and get people talking, while rewarding those who took the effort.
So drop everything else on October 7th and head over to the Playboy Club at Samrat Hotel in New Delhi for some good times. We will see you there!
