EVENT: JUMPSTART TREK WITH a GIG & BBQ

Friday, October 14, 2011

Musical trail
If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, then you’re going to become an even bigger one after you realize what Jumpstart has in store. Jumpstart, the guys responsible for some of the best treks on the outskirts of the city, are teaming up with Indie artist Nikhil D’Souza for a trek that combines nature with music. And you’re invited along.
 
Akul Tripathi from Jumpstart tells us what we can expect. He says. “We believe that music holds the power of transcendence and, when outdoors, it can provide for a magical other-worldly experience. The Great Gig in the Sky is a platform for exploring the outdoors and the natural world with the soothing accompaniment of music. The programme invites bands and artists to travel with Jumpstart on a two-day trek. In the evening, artists facilitate a jam session with other participants in the group.”
 
Nikhil, who has been involved in songs from movies including Aisha, Anjaana Anjaani, Crook and Kuch Luv Jaisa, is equally excited and says, “I get to go on a camping trip, play music that I want to play, meet interesting people over a weekend near a beautiful lakeside far away from the worries of the city? What's not to like?”
 
You can be sure that you’re going to love it too because music is not just what they have in store. Apart from a gig, you get to camp by the lakeside in tents, enjoy a dip in the lake, take part in a games session and they’ve even thrown in a barbeque. The next day, you can indulge in a trek up a mountain for a breathtaking view.
 
Complete with a gig, a trek and adventure activity, this weekend trip up to Igatpuri is definitely worth considering. Jumpstart will also be having other gig combined treks in the near future, so watch this space for more information.
 
When: October 15 and 16
Where: Igatpuri with Jumpstart
