If you’re a music fanatic, you will already know that 9th edition of NH7 Weekender kicks off in Pune this Friday. The Meghalaya leg of the fest was a huge success and given that it is one of the best music festivals in India, there will be a ton of good artistes to look forward to! Here is our list of the musicians we can’t wait to catch live…
Aswekeepsearching
 

Aswekeepsearching

They’re a 4 piece post-rock band from India whose music has recently gained popularity. They just finished a tour across all major metros to promote ‘Zia,’ their new album. We can’t wait to watch them perform our favourite track ‘What If’ from their record ‘Khwaab’ on Day 1 of NH7 Weekender.

Scribe
 

Scribe

One of the country’s most cult metal bands, we couldn’t miss out featuring Scribe on this list. With a reputation that spans close to a decade and legendary mosh pits to their credit, metalheads of the country will unite to watch one of their favourite artistes play their umpteenth set at NH7 Weekender this Friday.

Steve Vai
 

Steve Vai

Undoubtedly one of the highlights of this edition of Weekender, the legendary Steve Vai will perform on Saturday. Fans and aspiring guitar players will be thronging to the Bacardi Arena to watch the guitard wizard and former student of maestro Joe Satriani in action, and if you haven’t heard him before, this should be a great introduction!

The Ram Sampath Experience
 

The Ram Sampath Experience

Ram Sampath is the genius behind the cult track Bhaag DK Bose from Delhi Belly. He is also the genius composer of Shaan’s Tanha Dil which we have practically grown up with. If you’re a fan of MTV Coke Studio then you must’ve definitely seen him create magic with his voice and by blending unlikely genres of music. If you haven’t already, check out his track ‘Kattey’ with Bhanvari Devi and Hard Kaur which he brilliantly composed and played the keys for. He’s an artist you should absolutely not miss this NH7 Weekender! He plays on day 2, 9th December 2017.

Cigarettes after sex
 

Cigarettes after sex

And now for the headliners! Cigarettes After Sex is an American band that is killing it with their music on the Indie rock circuit. Active for about a decade now, they’re best known for their mellow music. Check out their singles ‘Affection’ and ‘K’ before you watch them Day 3 of Weekender.

Special mention:

Fan favourite Indie giants, Pentagram, who disbanded three years ago will be reuniting this year and close this edition of NH7 Weekender.
