And yes, after going on a break thanks to the ban on live music and a couple of other complications, the highly popular free music event- Freedom Jam is back this 2009! Maybe not in full glory, but we’re still happy about the return.
Hosted by Guruskool, the event will take place on the 14th of August 2009 at the Alliance Francaise (Vasanthnagar) Bangalore.Timings and the show lineup will be announced in a few days.
Bands that want to play at the event have been requested to email their profiles to [email protected]. The profile must include the following details:
– About the band
– Current line-up
– Contact numbers/ addresses (IMPORTANT!)
Those who are interested in helping out as volunteers can also mail in and contact the organisers.
From the massive Palace Grounds of the previous years to the restricted auditorium this year, there has been quite a downward shift in the scale of the event. But the purpose of the Freedom Jam movement is still the same- to promote and encourage free live music, and the support from music lovers too, is as strong as ever.
More updates will be up on www.headbangers.in, so keep an eye open.
