Deep Purple, Limp Bizkit, Anthrax, legends like The Wailers (Original band of Bob Marley) & The Doors (Original band of Jim Morrison)...they are all going to be playing together live in Delhi’s NCR on 16 and 17 February 2013.
Yes, believe it or not, the above lineup will be assembled together on stage at Gurgaon as the first leg of Percept Ltd.’s Fly Music Festival.
With Fly Music Festival, Percept hopes to encore in the field of live music, what they’ve already achieved in the arena of music festivals with the Sunburn Music Festival.
Shedding light on Percept’s plans its head honcho Sailendra Singha said, “So far live gigs in India have had a limp history. Music fans would get a Guns N Roses or a Santana doing their live act. And that’s it. For the first time we will be bringing 14 live acts together on the same stage in Gurgaon on 16 and 17 February.”
Singh added taht he hopes to revolutionize the way live rock bands are perceived in India. “Do you know, India has a population where 62 percent are below the age of 25 and do you know that India has the largest population of football fans in the world? Which is to say, young Indians like to ‘watch’ not participate in live acts. That’s where Fly Music was born.”
The Delhi lineup of international rock musicians is incredible. “We have The Wailers without Bob Marley and the Doors without Jim Morrison,” said Singh.
From Delhi Fly Music goes down South. But not Mumbai.
