Organised by Coconut Events, the 10-day festival was staged in the Golden Memories Dome, and attracted 12,000 guests. Renowned Indian folk singers, Kirtidan Gadhvi, Nisha Barot and Jetal Soni, performed every day.


The organisers appointed pro rental company, Stagecraft, to manage the challenging brief. Stagecraft had recently purchased a second dLive system from Allen & Heath’s distributor, Sun Infonet, comprising the flagship S7000 Surface with DM64 MixRack, to join its existing S3000/DM48 system. The S7000/DM64 system was selected as the FOH and monitor mixer for the festival, managing a spectrum of instruments such as 8 dhols, 6 drums, 5 floor drums, 1 kick drum, Indian acoustic percussions, bass, guitar, banjo, saxophone, clarinet, melodica, and keyboards, totalling 64 inputs and 27 outputs.
