DIY Day's Debut Appearance On April 26

Apr 24, 06:00pm

The DIY Day is a day long festival aimed at promoting the DIY ethic of art and will be hosted at the Akshara Theatre on April 26.

The DIY Day is set to make its debut at the Akshara Theatre in Delhi on April 26 in a bid to promote the DIY ethic. The one day festival is programmed to offer the visitors a host of events including music, comedy, and theatre; and an opportunity for artists to shell out some of their best homegrown works of art including CDs, food, jewellery, clothing, and screen films at their respective stalls. For a mere 300 bucks, one will have the excuse of sticking around the whole day experiencing the work of fourteen artists, with performances by Tankbund, Kitchensink, Jamblu + Lifafa, Nice Weather For Ducks, Kaivalya Play’s Improv Group, and New Delhi Comedy Club’s New Dicks On The Block, amongst others. Curated by Ghar ka Records in association with Epic Shit Entertainment and Akshara Theater, the DIY Day is a completely crowd-funded event with a successful campaign so far and boasting of a new and different format, on top of which, Pepsi MTV Indies (PMI) is also crowdsourcing one band to play at the DIY Day. Delhi bands are invited to write to PMI to earn a spot at the daylong festival; so hurry up and send in your applications now. 

Buy tickets online.

Bands can write to Pepsi MTV Indies to participate, via email.
