Come October 11 and Blue Frog, Delhi, will transform into a perfect festival venue, complete with four stages — which will host over 30 artistes — and a flea market set-up with art installations, food stalls, exhibitions and a wide range of activities. The popular live music venue is gearing up to host the much-anticipated third installment of the Area 79 Festival.

The past 2 editions — that were held in the outdoor and indoor spaces of the same venue — had also aimed at providing a unique experience by mixing alternative lifestyle and culture.
