Festival director Supreet Kaur said- "We're thrilled to be back in Meghalaya for our fifth year in the state. Since our festival's journey began in 2010, Bacardí NH7 Weekender has programmed extraordinary talent for an equally passionate and growing audience of music fans. The festival began as a home for indie musicians to connect with their fans like never before, and over ten years, it's been surreal to witness the festival grow in the most organic way - both sonically and as a community. With over 82% of our line-up making their festival debut this year, we hope to see fans, old and new to celebrate this decade of happiness with us".
"Bacardí NH7 Weekender has successfully brought independent music to mainstream culture, and we are confident that in the next ten years, the community will grow bigger and stronger. This year, we look forward to celebrating the festival, our fans and the spirit of always doing what moves us"- Said Bacardí Director Marketing, India Anshuman Goenka.
