Not a musician, but want to help out with the city’s independent music scene? This upcoming, two-day-long crowdfunded intimate music festival is where you should contribute.
Help Kolkata's Indie Music Scene At This Crowdfunded Music Fest
Did you know Kolkata has this burgeoning community of uber-talented musicians who make really awesome original music?
So some of these local musicians got together in a living room in Jodhpur Park and started off this series of monthly intimate music gigs in the form of ‘Parklife’. Amazing, right?
After the super successful first gig in the living room and the lit AF sequels in the terrace, they now want to go big to curate a music festival through not just one, but TWO back to back evenings! And what is in store for this festival?
Two evenings of fresh independent music and art in collaboration with SlumJam.org, Friday Night Originals, The Accidental Note, and Forever Poetry. They are calling this festival A Bigger Parklife, and have slated it for June 16 and 17.

So how can you help, you ask? Simple, since this is going to be a crowdfunded, homegrown event, you can contribute to simply making this happen!
The local scene in the city is struggling for lack of support, and a simple contribution can go a long way in not just helping ‘A Bigger Parklife’ happen, but also in encouraging these musicians to keep making music.
The lineup of artists for this festival is still being decided on, but you can expect an eclectic mix of both younger bands and popular acts!
