If you haven’t heard about this festival, you’ve probably been living under a rock. So, here you go, here’s all the intel you need!
All About The Festival
The Ziro Music Festival is a four-day outdoor music festival hosted by the Aptani Tribe which is known for its hospitality. The idea for this festival was conceived back in 2012 by Bobby Hano and Menwhopause (band) guitarist Anup Kutty. In a span of just a few years, it has become one of the biggest music festivals in the country! 40+ artists of mixed Genres from all over the country come to perform at Ziro Festival of Music. Other than the music the hospitality of the Apatanis, the local food and wine produce, the campsites and the after-party jamming sessions are some of the other things you can look forward to!
