What Is It?

Dance Ganesha was started back in 1999 with an aim to fuse the traditions and festivities of our ancient culture with contemporary fervor. This year the cavalcade will be led by Scootsy bikers {they are the sponsors of the event}, with the procession having a 40,000 Watt sound system, power amplifiers and laser lights. It will also house a dance floor as well as a non-alcoholic bar.

Dance Ganesha festival is back with its 17th edition and here’s the lowdown on why you should give the Bollywood pandals a miss and head for this instead.

Who Should Go?

People who love psychedelic music as well as Mumbai’s awesome festive season.┬áThe lineup roster has artists like Chriss Barr, Clement and Priyanjana, Essio, Groove Addict, Whosane! and Anastasia and others who’ll be churning out pyschedelic tunes.

Why Should I Go?

Anything Else?
