One week, seven venues, 21 artists, Delhi’s longest running indie music festival, The Gig Week is back for its fifth edition.
It all started as a youth collective for the love of music, and to bring undiscovered independent artists out in the spotlight to the city’s audience. Since its inception in 2011, the Gig Week has staged the new wave of independent artists in the city. What started out as a collective curiosity and zeal to bring underground indie artist in front of Delhi’s eyes, now has a huge reach in the city’s music scene. The festival travels all over Delhi, presenting artists doing much more than just the usual cover of songs and honouring famous artists.
This year at The Gig Week, here are the handpicked home-grown artists to look forward to:

Voctronica
