Text BoxDiscovery of music is the key attraction of the Summit- classical, modern, trendy, iconic, artistes at the top of their genre, in every genre, wow the audience every year with every edition of the Summit. However, what truly sets apart India Music Summit from other music events in the country is that the Summit is much more than just concerts and performances. Over three days, audiences interact with artistes in an intimate set-up, attending workshops, seeing them jam together, talking to them one-on-one and getting to know more about them as people apart from their public persona. They even get a chance to sing along with them at late night nostalgia sessions. For a music loving audience, there aren't many things better than that.
Nonstop Music - Morning, Noon and Night
Sessions begin from 6 a.m. with mellifluous melodies, flute rendition or bhajans, move on to conversations and afternoon classical performances, to energetic evening concerts and onto late night open mic sessions where the audience get a rare chance to sing along with their favourite artistes. There isn't a moment of the day where you will be without sur or tal at the India Music Summit, where every hour, every session is meticulously curated keeping the audience in mind.
