Longer the weekend, longer the music. The fifth edition of the Kasauli Rhythm & Blues Festival, nestled peacefully up in the hills, promises to treat you to magnificent views and soul-stirring sounds while taking up a good cause. In order to raise awareness and support for under-privileged critically ill children, the music festival and fundraiser, organised by the Genesis Foundation, will celebrate music, art and food while instilling hope and life. We pick three performances to look forward to. 

Massive Vibe
A diverse group of ten artists have collaborated to spread positivity and messages of self-discovery. Massive Vibe Live! is an on-going worldwide concert combining various genres of music with unique lyrics, dances, impromptu instrumental solos and holistic visuals on one platform. Having performed in Pune, Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi and Bangalore in the span of four months, Massive Vibe Live! will now bring its powerful feast of empowerment to the mountains of Himalayas. This will also be their last concert of the India Tour, catch them perform live while you still can!

The Local Train
The Delhi-based alternative rock band, was named India’s No. 1 Rock Band by Sennheiser India in 2015. Catch The Local Train performing some of their most beloved recordings, Aaoge Tum Kabhi from the movie Angry Indian Goddesses along with their new single, Dil Mere, released earlier this year. 

Kanchan Daniel and The Beards
The only blues band in the line-up hailing from Bombay, Kanchal Daniel and The Beards will be performing the best of their cathartic music. With inspiration rooting in the likes of Layla Zoe, Jimi Hendrix and Big Mama Thornton, channel the blues in all the right ways with their tracks Quirky Perky, The Road and Superficial. If you are in luck, you might get to listen to tunes from their upcoming album.
