Live music festivals are slowly making a comeback. Varanasi hosted Mahindra Kabira Festival — which celebrated the philosophy of poet Kabir — last week and, on the other end of the spectrum, electronic mainstay, Sunburn, will host a year-ender in Goa starting December 27. But that’s not to say digital festivals are winding up.
Sadhana Rao has curated the concerts at Bengaluru’s Museum of Art & Photography’s ‘Art is Life: SoundFrames’. While she admits some fatigue may seep in with digital events, a steady audience will remain. “Virtual festivals and stages are an important landmark in the ‘creator economy’. They will definitely plant its roots and, like most stages, evolve and add new features.”
