Sunburn in Delhi
Picture clowns, stilt walkers, fire dancers, musicians and DJs will all come together for a carnival of sorts this October, as Delhi gets its very own Sunburn Festival. Although the three-day event happens in Goa every year, the Delhi version will be a one-day event — organised by Percept — to be held at the Unitech Golf Course & Country Club in Noida on October 7.
Details such as the line-up and ticket prices are still not announced, but the organisers are encouraging everyone to "wear a tutu, dye your hair orange, or wow us with your ultra-cool neon shorts". Sounds like fun? We must wait and watch.
Celebration of Thumri
The devouts of classical music have a reason to rejoice as several devotional and romantic notes will tug at their heartstrings this month. With an aim to revive the classical music form, Thumri, Sahitya Kala Parishad — along with the Department of Art, Culture and Languages — is organising a two-day festival in the Capital, which will witness performances by maestros such as Shubha Mudgal, Vidushi
Girija Devi, Pandit Ajoy Chakraborty and Malini Awasthi. The event, to be inaugurated by Delhi's Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, will be held on August 13-14, 6.30pm onwards, at Kamani Auditorium, Mandi House.
