Forty music acts from around the world come to Bengaluru this weekend, as part of the two-day Echoes of Earth Festival. But what's entertainment anymore without sustainability, especially in Bengaluru, where the erosion of natural resources is evident for all to see? Echoes of Earth, therefore, focusses on both - good music and sustainable living. "We wanted the festival and its platform to stand for something more," says Festival Director Rodhan Netalkar. "In Bengaluru we are exposed to the rapid erosion of natural resources.
This thought became the driving force behind the event and that's how it got its name, too - Echoes of Earth."

Since they began in 2016, Echoes of Earth has become a pioneer of sorts for festivals seound the world, and Netalkar says they have been invited to different parts of the country and the world to host the event. There are performances, workshops, themed stages and lots more. The theme this year is The Sanctuary, through which they celebrate the “endangered species of flora and fauna, through urban wildlife workshops, campus modules with film screenings, green hackathons, panel discussions and more,” says Netalkar. It’s also worked into stage design, art installations, and thematics. The venue is a strict no plastic zone, using only bio-degradable cutlery and has free water stations (RO filters) and the ‘Big Tree Stage’ is powered by using solar power.
