The Ziro Festival of Music, now gearing up for its monumental 10th edition, is back to sweep you off your feet with a spectacular lineup of music, art, and culture. From September 28th to October 1st, 2023, the serene Ziro Valley in Arunachal Pradesh, India, will once again play host to this grand celebration of passion, sustainability, community, and cultural diversity.
A Decade of Diversity and Harmony Founded in 2012, the Ziro Festival has come a long way in championing indigenous tribes and artists from Northeast India while simultaneously spotlighting the Indian and global independent music scene. It’s a unique platform where traditional and contemporary, local and global, and ancient and modern harmoniously coexist.
Sustainability at Its Heart One of the festival’s standout features is its unwavering commitment to sustainability. Ziro Festival prides itself on being the first and only festival in India built almost entirely from locally sourced eco-friendly materials, primarily bamboo and wood, which are reused year after year. Local Apatani artisans labor diligently for 40 days before the festival, crafting everything from the stages to the stalls by hand, infusing the event with an authentic, rustic charm.
The festival goes beyond just aesthetics; it champions eco-conscious practices. A strict zero-plastic policy ensures that the festival grounds remain pristine. Waste reduction measures such as composting further reduce the event’s environmental footprint. Even the land on which the festival is held is left untouched and undamaged, thanks to meticulous planning and a strong ethos of respect for the environment.
The Lineup: A Sonic Journey Ziro Festival 2023 boasts an eclectic lineup that transcends borders and genres. From homegrown talents like Mohit Chauhan and the enigmatic Alif to international sensations like Lee Ranaldo & Leah Singer and the groovy Eliasse, it’s a musical journey that spans the globe. With over 30 artists from diverse backgrounds, the festival promises to be a sonic adventure like no other.
