After an award-winning first edition in 2014, Bhavishyavani Future Soundz and Magnanimous join hands again to present yet another edition of the much-awaited Eden ArtFest.
This time, Eden ArtFest presents itself as a two-day affair from November 14-15 spread across the immaculate lawns and indoor clubbing areas of Tote On The Turf nestled along Mumbai’s iconic Mahalaxmi Racecourse, smack dab in the centre of our beloved metropolis.
Through their expertise, the Magnanimous Group have for years raised the standards lifestyle events in the country are widely known as de facto party missionaries of the ever-evolving urban lifestyle, art and culture space. And as is custom with Bhavishyavani’s long-standing philosophy of pairing incredible local dance music talent with established and rising stars from abroad, this year’s musical lineup at Eden will see a diverse mix of bands, producers, DJs and performers across genres. This symbiotic union between two forward-thinking groups lays the foundation for Eden ArtFest, the weekend getaway of choice, a veritable oasis in the middle of an urban sprawl.
From close to home, electro-rock fetishists Madboy/Mink and feel-good word/beatsmith Frame/Frame feature alongside bass music DJ Ez Riser. Critically-lauded analog dance music producer Aqua Dominatrix will also make an appearance and the talented and enigmatic experimental beatmaker from Pune Big City Harmonics will make the trip down for a taste of Eden. Longtime music educator and vinyl-selector DJ Uri will also bring his laid back cool to #EdenArtFest.
Via Berlin from Tel Aviv and beyond come the talents of the inimitable Maayan Nidam who has been lighting up dance floors across the world since the dawn of the new millennium, spreading only the most tasteful of house and techno. She’ll find a counter-balance within borders, as Eden welcomes New Delhi producer Gaurav Malaker aka BLOT!, one half of the eponymous venerated audio-visual art duo. With that, the techno heavies of the Rage Crew ft. Bullzeye in all their glory, plus Bhavishyavani’s own residents Loopkin, Spacejams and Norcotiq, not to mention a new collaborative performance between M.MAT and avant-garde dance music producer Sandunes.
Finally capping off the weekend’s festivities are the hugely successful and flamboyant French house and techno trio dOP with their signature spin on the bonafide dance party of the future. As one of Resident Advisor’s Top Live Acts for the last 3 years, dOP all but guarantee a treat for #EdenArtFest attendees. Teamed alongside vocalist Brian Brewster, Eden will also welcome house meets hip-hop performer Aquarius Heaven proving yet again that dance music has no true allegiance to genres, and that everybody is welcome to the party.
The festival’s new home at Tote On The Turf will be re-designed with an all-new (now infamous) Eden Garden offering a fresh new perspectives on festival spaces working in line with this year’s art and design philosophy (more to be revealed in the coming days).
Obviously, Eden ArtFest will always be about more than just music. A carefully curated market will provide those inclined with their other fixes on the weekend, EDEN Village will open its gates to 40 unique and dynamic talents and brands such as Little Shilpa, Gabriella Demetries, Turquoise & Gold allowing them to showcase their stylings over two days in the midst of #EdenArtFest.
If that isn’t enough to pack in a weekend, #EdenArtFest will be the first urban festival in India to offer morning detox sessions paired with music and yoga so you can charge up for the day ahead (or get right into the dancing bright and early).
#EdenArtFest welcomes Partido – We Hunt. You Party. as its official event app partner, MissMalini.com as its favored tie-up in digital marketing and Wooplr as our eFashion partner for the weekend.
Look out for more surprise announcements, additions to the lineup and other great Eden news soon.
