9 YEARS. 13 GIGS. THE BEST ACTS. ALL IN THE CITY OF JOY.
THE Festival started as a dream. An impossible one. Till it happened for real for the first time. 28th August 2012. Kolkata witnessed Poets Of The Fall live at Nazrul Mancha. 4000 fans screamed their lungs out in joy. At the City of Joy!
The next 12 chapters featuring Michael Learns To Rock, Infected Mushroom, Karnivool, The Aristocrats, Bumblefoot, Skyharbor, and more than 150 great performers, brought Kolkata closer to artists across multiple genres and nations, and the fans closer to their dreams!

KEEP OUR VENUE GREEN & CLEAN
We don't want to educate you about the needs of a green city. We may, however, inform you that getting permissions of large scale concerts in this city is a major task- so abide by all rules and regulations PLEASE! Just use the dust bins. People caught littering will be thrown off the premises into a large dustbin vat (coloured in blue and white) outside!
