DJ Jean Du Voyage


Get set for a lively weekend and dance away to some techno beats,  courtesy French DJ and turntablist Jean du Voyage. Often described as eclectic and precise, his works are apparently influenced by the numerous cultures of the world. We're hoping to catch him playing tracks from his debut album, Mantra, considered an authentic piece of art which echoes "openness to the multiculturalism of our world".

Neymar Jr’s 5-a- side Football Tournament

Neymar Jr's Five {a unique five-a-side tournament} is all set to leave the city's die-hard football fans spellbound with the Bangalore Qualifiers match. Teams will be seen battling it out to secure a place in the national finals to be held in Mumbai, prior to the world finale to be held in Brazil. Registration is free and as good as that sounds, the tournament carries a twist to it — every time a goal is scored against a team, they lose a player. The quickest team to eliminate all the players from its opposition will be crowned as winners. Who's in?
