By blending music and art, some of the most creative forms of expression, we hope to envision a new experience for the creative soul. We received a positive response last year and are certain that this year will be even more exceptional.”

The ‘Emerge’ partnership is the perfect platform to further our efforts in this and we look forward to hosting many such events which will not only bring the musical styling of quality international artists to Indian shores, but also create a 360 degree urban cultural experience.”
Kicking off the revamped ‘Emerge’, DJ Dismantle will perform in Mumbai, Pune and Delhi on 18, 19 and 20 September, respectively. Anant Ahuja, New Delhi based graphic designer, will showcase his work at the Delhi gig while visual artist Rohan Dahiya, along with designer Mudit Ganguly, will exhibit their art in Mumbai and Pune.
