Things are hotting up for the third edition of Nariyal Paani, the music festival in Alibaug. The festival décor will reflect Nariyal Paani’s free-spirited bohemian energy. It is nice to note that in keeping with its zero plastic, eco-friendly ethos, only biodegradable materials will be used. A short boat ride away from Mumbai will take you to a medley of Indian and international independent artistes, performing live original music. Programmed to ensure maximum revelry, the genres will range from folk, jazz and reggae, to electro-pop, hip-hop and beat-boxing. Performing acts include Donn Bhat + Passenger Revelator, Fiddler’s Green and Bellatrix. Attractive art, fantastic food and craft beer will be on offer at the festival on January 21 and 22. And it is also nice to note that in the lead-up and during the festival, Nariyal Paani will work hand-in-hand with local communities in the surrounding villages, providing employment and nurturing economic growth.
