Glastonbury Festival 2019 Worthy Farm , United Kingdom

Date: 26th –30th June, 2019.
Venue: Worthy Farm, United Kingdom.

Glastonbury Festival is one of the world's most famous music and performing arts festivals. Embracing each and every genre across the spectrum, from rock and pop, to minimal house, techno and full-throttle drum 'n' bass, music-lovers flock to its spiritual fields down in Somerset.
Famed for its huge headline sets on its hallowed Pyramid Stage, which has recently played host to the Arctic Monkeys, Rolling Stones, Kanye West and Radiohead, it's the other side of the festival that really sets the heart racing. Take a stroll through Shangri-La – the festival's night time district – and you'll be thrown into a themed world full of immersive theatre and shenanigans, soundtracked by electronic music's finest and underground names. 
Or just up the path there's Arcadia, the sprawling spider-like, flame-throwing structure, open to only the most hardcore ravers, or the more cosier circus and cabaret field, where some of the country's best comedians come together with drag queens and trapeze magicians. 

Tickets to the festival sold out within 32 minutes when they went on sale in October, with the resale happening in 2019 for those who missed out. However, there will be a ticket resale in April 2019.

Reeperbahn Festival Germany

Reeperbahn Festival 19 – 22 Sept. 2018 The Future Of Music The music industry is often a mirror of our society. Here, too, we face the demand on artists to take clear political positions, the question what art is (not) allowed to do, the claim to overcome the gender gap, the way of handling the change in the use of media, and increasingly stronger economic pressure on the one hand, but also all sorts of suggested solutions and future vision on the other. Add to these topics the opportunity to experience the most thrilling new international bands and artists live in small or mediumsized clubs, you will end up at the heart of Reeperbahn Festival! Apart from addressing the future issues mentioned above, whose relevance often extends far beyond the music industry, Europe’s biggest market place for music and the music industry will present around 500 international bands and artists, already for the 13th time. The eight most promising acts will present themselves to a top-class jury around Tony Visconti at the ANCHOR music competition. This unique blend of future congress and festival is the essence of Reeperbahn Festival, attracting more and more music fans and professional guests from all over the world for four days to Hamburg St. Pauli every year. The fact that Reeperbahn Festival has meanwhile become a platform for political topics was confirmed by the major press conference last year kicking off KEYCHANGE, an initiative promoted by the EU and triggered by the British PRS Foundation, which its initiators deliberately set in the Reeperbahn Festival framework. KEYCHANGE stands for strengthening the role of women in the music business, again addressing an issue that reaches far beyond the music industry. 40,000 guests on four days in 2017, of which 4,700 were professional visitors from 57 nations 500 bands/artists about 600 concerts and showcase concerts art, film, readings, education 400 conference items with sessions, meetings and awards

Best Jazz Venue in India

Those of you who have been around from the 1960's through the 1990's will remember the vibrant live music scene in almost every starred hotel in India. Those were the days when you walked into a nightclub like 'Rendezvous' at The Taj Mahal hotel and 'Supper Club' at the Oberoi Sheraton in Mumbai to see curtains going up on a band that was the prime focus of these outlets. Every seat in these restaurants allowed an unobstructed view of the band that performed every night on resident contracts. Today all this has disappeared thanks to some ridiculously high entertainment taxes on live music. Today, non off these hotels have complete bands playing save for a few that feature small duos or solo singers. The Lodhi in New Delhi, recently listed among the world's best hotels, decided to step in and rewind to the good old days. They got Goa's premier jazz quartet 'Jazz Junction' to move to Delhi on a resident contract and the decision has paid off in terms of footfalls generated by the band. Jazz Junction featuring singer Daniella Rodrigues, pianist Tony Dias,
bassist Colin D'Cruz and drummer Angelo Colasco began playing at The Lodhi in June 2018. Four months into the contract the band generated a sizeable following, with quite a few high profile guests choosing to celebrate their special occasion at the Elan bar where the band performs. Against all odds the rewind option proved to be a huge success and hopefully other properties around the country takes the cue to trigger a whole new revival  of live music.
