Bacardi NH7 Weekender Pune has managed to cover

all genres with their 2018 lineup. The annual music festival announced headliners, including American guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, who last performed in India in 2005.

In 2005, when guitarist Joe Satriani was on his debut India tour, his show in Kolkata was cut short, much to the disappointment of his fans. But some of the adrenaline packed moments at his India shows — in Mumbai, Bengaluru and Kolkata — were part of Satriani’s eponymous Live DVD that released in 2006. This year, the instrumental guitar virtuoso returns to headline the three-day NH7 Weekender Festival in Pune. Fans can expect Satch, as the guitar hero is known, to perform from his album What Happens Next, which released earlier this year, besides music from his more popular albums such as Flying in a Blue Dream.

The line up, which was revealed this week also includes big names on the international music scene such as Australian soul quarter Hiatus Kaiyote to French multi-instrumentalist FKJ.

The festival line-up also includes Chennai vocalist Benny Dayal with his band Funktuation, New Delhi-based rock outfit, The Local Train and electronica artiste Dualist Inquiry, also from the capital and Mumbai bass prodigy Mohini Dey. As has been the norm over the past few years, NH7 Weekender will also appeal to fans of stand-up comedy with names such as Radhika Vaz, Sumukhi Suresh, Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakya taking to the stage.

Also headlining the festival are celebrated names such as Hindustani classical vocalist Shubha Mudgal from New Delhi and siblings Salim and Sulaiman Merchant who will represent the Hindi film music scene in the country. Another contemporary artiste from the city at the festival is electronic music producer Ritviz Srivastava, who goes by the stage name, Ritviz.

Other big draws include American prog metal band The Contortionist, Irish post-rocker’s God Is An Astronaut, Australian instrumental rock group sleepmakeswaves and more.

The Pune edition of the festival is slated to take place from December 7 to 9, 2018. – Agencies
