About Bacardi NH7 Weekender 2020
Bacardi NH7 Weekender is a 10-year-old tradition that introduced us to some amazing artists from around the globe and India. Be it world-renowned performers such as Steven Wilson, Steve Vai or Indian gems like Prateek Kuhad, Divine, Parikrama & more... this festival gave music and party with both hands. And now that the world is grim from the virus, they introduced the digital version of Bacardi NH7 Weekender with a lot more finesse and sophistication.

1. To begin with, there are going to be 24 international and homegrown artists performing this year on their special never-seen-before sets.
2. The festival is going to stream on multiple stages simultaneously.
3. You can look for Bacardi Stage, Dewar's Stage & Breezer's Vivid Stage during the festival.
4. This one-of-a-kind virtual platform is a joint effort of OML & Paytm and dear God, they've put through some quirks of their own.
5. This year, Weekender is planning to take virtual music festivals onto another level by adding super cool features which include virtual games, a virtual photo booth, virtual chat platform to say HI to your favourite artist, etc.
6. Naturally, there's more... another awesome-sauce gimmick of Weekender 2020 is about hosting a virtual party. While the festival is in full-spin, you can host a virtual party and invite 11 of your friends where you can enjoy the fiesta even more.
7. The last thing and its a biggie... another feature called Spotlight can get you highlighted on the Weekender Spotlight during the Live fest. All you gotta do is upload a 15-second clip of yourself saying & doing whatever and you get a chance to be on the Spotlight in front of the entire viewership. Whaaa?
You'd be subjected to the world of Indie rock, folk-rock, electronica, Hindustani classical and so much more. Here's the list of all the artists performing this year.
