Kasauli Rhythm and Blues Festival
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.
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!
