It’s not uncommon for people to speak of music and peace in the same breath. Now, a new global initiative is pushing harder for them to be linked officially. The brainchild of actor-turned-filmmaker Jeremy Gilley, Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalise World Peace Day (September 21), making it a day that celebrates global unity and intercultural cooperation. And spreading peace through music is its prime motive.

The Indian edition of the event will be held on September 20, and it has been jointly organised by Eventwala and Vh1 India. The party will feature some popular international psytrance names as well as a fine set of local musicians. Check out the line-up below:

For the past many decades, millions of people have been active on World Peace Day in many countries around the world, and hundreds of organisations have carried out life-saving activities in areas of conflict. Peace One Day’s campaigns and activities in education, music, film, sport, dance, art and online media have even proved that having a day dedicated to world peace works.
