Feel Coachella in NE India

It’s Coachella season! And I couldn’t help put together a look for it. Now I would be lying if I said this look came naturally to me, it didn’t. I drew inspiration from one of Kendall Jenner’s Coachella looks from last year. This dress, from Forever21, was love at first sight and I had different things planned for it which were never realized šŸ™ Plus I am in that phase of life where I have way too many unused clothes in my wardrobe and I do not wish to buy anything until I use them all. Hence I decided to use this dress for the look and add a bohemian touch with some statement jewelry pieces. Completed my look with the Adidas Stan Smiths considering the amount of walking involved.

Now that I have my look ready, I want to be there. But alas, the current situation doesn’tĀ offer me the luxury of traveling halfway across the world to be a part of this mega music and arts festival. So that’s when I thought I should share similar events for those of us in India looking for closer to home options. I am sure, all of us are very well connected and there is no event in mainland India I can tell you about.

So let me tell you about some of the stuff that happens closer to the place I call home, Northeast India. This one’sĀ for all those indie music lovers, you must visit theĀ ZiroĀ Music Festival.Ā This is an outdoor festival held every September in the Ziro Valley of Arunachal Pradesh. It showcases independent music, popularly know as Indie music. Ā This festival lasts for about 4 days and you get the spend these 4 days in camps under the pristine blue skies of one of the most beautiful Indian states while drinking the famous local rice beer, apong. What else could one ask for, nay?

The next one is an annual cultural event held during the first week of December, calledĀ The Hornbill Festival in the capitalĀ city of Nagaland, Kohima. It’s one of the largest celebrations of the indigenous Naga tribes and displays an array of cultures under one roof. Art, craft, songs & dances, sports and musical concerts continue through the night while one enjoys the delectable tribal cuisine and of course, apongĀ . One of the major highlights of the event is the Hornbill International Rock Festival that has local and international rock bands performing.

So if you’re in India and are a fan of nature and adventure along with music and art, these events are a must visit for you.

Now, how to get there might much more planning that I am not equipped to provide on my blog but hey, where there’s a will, there’s a way.

So, hope to see you there soon.

And you already know what you would find me wearing.
