One of the most anticipated homegrown electronic festivals that the city looks forward to is the Mandala Music Festival which has been on for six editions. The little nip in the air along with banging underground and dance music tracks makes the festival a night to remember. For this season, the festival by Decible Events is taking place at Cafe Ekante Island in Eco Park on December 3 and will not have two but three stages this time.

The music

Starting with the Mantra or the main stage, the artiste line-up will see a mix of EDM, commercial, hip-hop, house music, psy trance and more. The DJs and artistes include a mix of local, national and international acts including Chester Young, Ivan, Mihir Chandan, General Zooz, Teri Miko, Xavier, Outlaw, Aaditya, Gourav, Kunal Shaw, Man-You, RVD, Steven and Sumit Pradhan.

The Tantra stage is smaller and will only be dedicated to the sub-genres of underground music. The sounds will be a mix of progressive house, minimal techno, melodic, indie dance, disco and more. The line-up includes Ankytrixx, Citizen Kain, Tash, Arpan, Devaa, Dharmalogy, Kunal G, Antidote, Cmyk, In Between, Sohail, Unheard and Tanishq.

The Yantra stage is newly introduced this year. This stage will be dedicated to the underground hip-hop scene which will have a mix of beatboxers, street dancing, freestyle rappers and more.

Organiser speak

“This is the sixth edition and I would like to thank Kolkata and Bacardi for supporting us all these years. Would not be able to continue for so long for the homegrown festival of Kolkata. This year, people from outside Bengal have inquired of the festival so I would say Mandala is slowly reaching out outside the city. We request everyone to come early since it’s not just a festival, but an experience,” said Mohanish Lama, founder of Decible Events.
