This festival brings a diverse but much-loved line-up of Indian bands onto one platform

The Under 25 Summit 2017 is taking the city by storm with speakers like Arnab Goswami, Kenny Sebastian, Tanmay Bhat and many other influencers. It promises to be the largest youth festival in the country and features talks, panels, workshops, performances, art installations and much more. The festival winds up with an Under 25 Music Festival in association with The Humming Tree.
“Music is the universal language without a doubt and the entire team thought that there couldn’t be a better end to the festival than music from few of the best musicians in our country,“ says Anto Philip, the co-founder of the Under-25 Club, the organisers of the festival.
The line-up of the evening features popular young bands from the country that have also been youth icons. City-based Indian rock/pop band Lagori being one of them. “I have been friends with Anto for a long time and I think the summit is a great endeavour,” says Geeth Vaz, the guitarist for the band. The band has written a few songs especially for the performance. Vaz reveals, “We have a song called Yaad, which is about nostalgia and growing up in a very different India. I think it is suited for the crowd we are expecting.” Another city band on stage will be Parvaz. The rock outfit was formed in early 2010 and recently released their debut LP Baran.
Chennai based Skrat is also part of the gig. Skrat is known for their alternative and hard rock vibe and their laid back garage style. They recently played at Mood Indigo, the IIT Mumbai festival. The fourth band is a reggae and dub ensemble, The Fanculos, from Mumbai who plan to bring some of their high-energy funk-inspired tunes.
