(Dhruv Visvanath Trio)
Landour is situated on a ridge skirting Mussoorie, a historic hill station. For most of the year, it stays rather quiet, with Mussoorie playing host to most tourists. The few travelers who do end up visiting Landour are always surprised by its quiet yet lively demeanor. The Big Gig Exclusive has been held here annually for the past 3 years and while it does add a bit of sound to the landscape, the combination of music and nature is in one word, heavenly.
This year 19th April will mark the Big Gig Exclusive’s third anniversary. The past two years have seen a variety of artists covering a vast spectrum of musical styles. Whether it is Southern American folk music or Delta blues or even acapella singers, the line-up of musicians has never been run- of-the-mill, but it has always been fresh and unique.
This year too, we promise not only to have diverse artists but there are acts lined up from various parts of the country to offer up some of the most incredible live acts seen on stage. This time around we have 8 artists playing from noon into the late hours of the night for your listening pleasure.
