The F16s are one of the newest acts on the burgeoning Chennai underground music scene. They are a five piece Rock n Roll act with a distinct indie aesthetic and a hint of electronica.
SnowShoe is a studio project led by Sky Rabbit’s lead guitarist, Rahul Nadkarni. Built from scratches put down over the years, their moody, sixty minute set, has moved to the stage with a mash up of samplers, loopers and live instruments. The two-piece live outfit also features fellow Sky Rabbit member, Harsh Karangale on drums.
Nadkarni’s effortless layering and memorable soundscapes explore the depths of this seemingly very personal project that is growing in an emotive direction with a tight and slick live performance to boot. A cerebral adventure that we’d catalogue right next to acts such as Bonobo, Nightmares On Wax and Four Tet. A band that epitomises the exciting contemporary wave of electronica, currently gripping the nation.
Over 3 years of his existence as an engineer and producer in the Indian alternative scene, Ayan De merges emotive grooves with textural grit and glitch – cold and clinical instrumentation shivering with emotional fervour and timbre alike.
Whether you like your beats mild, raw, or loud, chances are there's something for you in the music of Paralights. De has a clear possession and wide-ranging vision to balance minimal and maximal technicality and musicality, as first demonstrated on his debut Scores For Your Background EP. With more recent collaborations with Mumbai based Sandunes, his compositional range and palette for various electronic sensibilities also came out on full display.
It's obvious that Paralights accomplishes this by consistently re-inventing combinations of a relatively scaled-down toolkit.
The Vagina Monologues is a global phenomenon and has become a brand name in India. This powerful play-an unusual blend of outrageous comedy and heart-breaking drama-tells the stories of women like you have never heard before. Ask anyone who has seen either the English or the Hindi version of The Vagina Monologues and they will tell you that this play is a must-see and transformational-a play that is exceptionally relevant in modern India.08:30PM-10:00PM
From the Maharashtrian woman who met a man who "loved to look at her" to a Parsi woman who hasn't been "down there since 1944", this play promises to enlighten and entertain you like no other play out there right now. The piece de resistance of the evening is a medley of the Big "O". It has been truly said of Eve Ensler's masterpiece, that after watching it, no man or woman will ever be the same again!
The Vagina Monologues has been part of a larger movement here called V-Day India. This movement, along with the play, has helped raise awareness and funds to combat and eliminate violence against women and girls. To date, The Vagina Monologues in India has raised upwards of Rs. 80 lakhs to donate to individuals and organizations working towards ending violence against women and girls.
It’s the incessant bass, screaming arpeggios and piercing percussions that truly define Helium Project. His sound is all about paying homage to his first love, “Music”, and particularly about an explosive electronic experience...
Arijit aka Helium Project excels in the genre of Techno and Progressive house. Perhaps just “electronica” could define the resulting product - but then, it isn’t about neat packaging. It’s about pushing the envelope and fusing influences to create a distinctive brand of dance music. And that is exactly what Helium Project does…
With a constant introduction of new styles and techniques in his live mixes along with his killer instinct for picking the best sounds and producers, Arijit never fails to get the dance floor pumping!

Touted as, "One of India's top ten comedians", by The Times Of India, Sorabh is one of the country's most traveled comedians with his solo show, "Pant on Fire" having done over 150 shows in 16 cities in two years. He received just three death threats and lost most of his hair, but, it was worth it for the frequent flier miles.
His comedy style veers toward exaggeration, hyperbole and some of the worst accent portrayals in human history. Suspicions of substance abuse upon seeing him on stage are rife but, thus far, unproven. Recently, he has also proved that he can read and write by releasing his debut novel, "The Wednesday Soul"

Daniel Fernandes bid adieu to a career in advertising and took to stand up comedy last year. His material is based on his experiences with travel, 69 failed relationships and his favorite Indian community amongst other things. He feels pretty much anything he has to face in life has comic potential so why not just laugh it off and pretend it never happened?
Not related to Vinod Khanna…(Saddest thing he has heard from people…so far) Comedian, Radio Jockey at Radio Mirchi also an artist...(he only does abstract art like palm and leg impressions..on canvas because he is a big fan of M F Hussain..only difference is he earned lakhs and Abhimanyu only manages to get a blank stare from people).
Renato Moreira was born in 1984 in Lisbon, Portugal. Starting his route in the electronic music field in 1998, he began to gain a taste for computerised production.
His initial experience was in genres of electronica like breakbeat, downtempo and house, before he turned to the more dark path of psychedelic trance in his self-titled project LAB, influenced by the upcoming wave of Russian sounds. LAB's music is based on fast paced and groovy full beats, inducing futuristic ambiences and breaks, featuring powerful mental twisting leads!
In the last 6 years, LAB has performed Live Acts and DJ Sets all over the world, at festivals and parties in Portugal, Warsaw and Gdynia, Poland, Stockolm, Sweden, Prague, Czech Republic, Gent and Antwerp, Belgium, Innsbruck, Austria, New York, Austin, Texas, San José, CA, Costa Rica among others.

Love, love me do, sang four young boys from Liverpool in 1962 setting off a storm that swept teenagers in every remote corner of the world. In socialistic India too, youngsters put on their dancing shoes to groove to this new sound, so different from anything they had heard till then. Some teenagers were sufficiently inspired to grow their hair, put on their bell-bottoms and pick up their guitars and the Indian pop and rock revolution was born.
But it was not just about the music though that was important. As Sidharth Bhatia’s colourful and incisive book tells us, it was an attempt by a new, post-independence generation – midnight’s children – to assert their own voice. Theirs was a voyage of self-discovery, as they set out to seek freedom and liberation from older attitudes and values. At the end of this era, nothing – politics, society and fashion – would ever be the same again.
