Here’s all you need to know about this year’s Bacardi NH7 Weekender in Pune!


The Bacardi NH7 Weekender has evolved over the years to be recognized as the “happiest music festival” in India. First held in Pune, the Weekender has branched out to new cities like New Delhi and Bangalore, and this year, Kolkata has been added to the list as a 4th edition. The previous years’ editions were a huge success, and this year is no exception!

The line-up for the festival was cleverly revealed by the folks at Bacardi NH7 Weekender, dropping hints in the form of ‘Hangman’ games and a series of creative artwork on their Facebook page.

They took a step further with special ‘NH7 Secret Service Parties’ held on August 18 in Mumbai as well as Pune, where they announced the headlining act for Pune’s Weekender.

Pune is the only city this year to host a 3-day edition. Headlining the Pune leg this year are international heavyweights Chase & Status. If you haven’t heard this name before, you’re obviously living under a rock. Chase & Status are UK-based drum ‘n’ bass giants who have played at leading festivals around the world including Glastonbury, Roskilde and Download. The electronic duo consists of Saul ‘Chase’ Milton and Will ‘Status’ Kennard.

There are only 9,000 tickets up for grabs, so make sure you hurry! Also, if you want to attend more than one city, NH7 Weekender has special prices for the Weekender Warriors.
