Delhi’s very own independent music festival is back with a third edition – and it’s only gotten bigger & better!
The Gig Week (TGW) started out in 2011 as a youth collective with an intense love for music. It has now become a music platform that stages the new wave of upcoming indie talent in the city.
Over the years, TGW has seen artists like Dualist Inquiry, Blackstratblues, Skrat, Half Step Down, Junkyard Groove, The Doppler Effect, Shantanu Pandit and Urban Soundscape among many other talented acts. Venues have been packed with music enthusiasts swaying to the rhythms.
The week-long festival takes place across various locations in Delhi and will feature a varied mix of artists spanning a slew of different music genres. Managing Director of TGW, Anubhav Gupta, said that since there has been a larger focus on EDM all over, they will be including some of that in their schedule for this year, thus expanding further on genres.
