BENGALURU: The NH7 Weekender, an indie music festival was held on 5th and 6th of December at Laxmi Lawns in Magarpatta, Bangalore suburbs.

“It was a one-of-a kind experience, in handling such a huge crowd at once. The artists as well as the attenders were extremely happy and enjoyed to the fullest,” said Payal Jairaj, one of the organisers of the event.
The two-day event had 30 plus artists and bands from all over the world, A.R.

The Indian bands like Brodha V, The Ganesh Talkies, Noori, Swarathama,Thaikkudam Bridge and many more were a part of the festival.

Music with a conscience was the theme of the weekender festival, which saw famous Bollywood artist Vishal Dadlani dedicating a solid one-hour empathising with the drowning state of the Chennai city.
