    A three-day cultural festival brings contemporary and established artists together

    Three days of networking, music, films and beautiful people — that is what the second edition of IndiEarth XChange at The Park is all about. Organised by Yotam Agam and Sonya Mazumdar from EarthSync, the XChange is a series of conferences, workshops, showcase performances, screenings and think-tank sessions between the Indian independent music, film and media industries, and key national and international delegates. “The event acts as a meeting point for established and emerging members of India’s music and film industries, and also includes a music and film festival with an eclectic line-up of renowned national and international artists,” says Agam, who promises 200 delegates from 20 countries for the event.

    The line-up
    Expect a wide range of artistes like Berlin-based producer Robot Koch, Brooklyn-based producer-visual artist J Viewz, indie/electronica duo Shaair and Func, Success and French Cowboy & The One from France, indie alt-rockers Skrat and Bicycle Days, folk-electronica collective Business Class Refugees, Tritonik with their signature style of Mauritian blues, Carnatic maestro Mahesh Vinayakram and DJ and producer Nucleya. Besides music performers, there will be movie screenings, “Sahel Calling is about the refugee population in Mali and we have Dead Cat — a quirky tale of love set in London. These are just some of the offbeat independent films that will be screened at the festival,” concludes Agam.
