Do I have to bring a printout of my festival ticket?
We love the environment, so the folks at the box office are happy to see your ticket on your mobile phone. Be warned that there is a limited mobile network at the venue, so remember to save the ticket on your phone. The SMS sent by Insider.in at the time of ticket purchase will also do for entry.
Is there a minimum age for entry?
Age is just a number, so there’s no minimum age for entry to the festival. We do insist, however, that children below 16 years be accompanied by an adult guardian, and that extremely young children get hearing protection so that they can groove to the music no matter where you take them (earplugs will be available at the box office). Also children under the age of 10 get in for free!
Can I transfer my ticket to someone else?
Yes. To transfer tickets, please follow the process givenhere. You must log in to your Insider account and enter the details of the person to whom you want to transfer your ticket. They will receive the e-ticket instantly on their email and phone. Please note that online transfers can be carried out until 24 hours prior to the event.
Can I cancel my ticket?
Sorry, no backsies here. We will not be able to cancel/refund tickets. To transfer tickets to someone else, follow the process given here. Please ask the person to come with: 1) a valid, government-issued photo ID and 2) a copy of the e-ticket you transferred in their name, which they will receive in their email and via text message. Please note that online transfers can be carried out until 24 hours prior to the event.
What kind of ID do I need?
To enter BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender, you must present identification. So please carry a valid, government-issued ID, such as a passport, Aadhar card, PAN Card, or driver’s license. Letters from your grandma claiming how old you are won’t do, sorry 🙁
What time does the event start and end each day?
Entry to the festival begins at 3 PM, and the festival ends at 10 PM (but in your heads, the Weekender state of mind never stops).
Can I bring outside food/drinks to the festival?
Outside food and drinks are not allowed inside the venue; food and beverages will be available for sale. If you have special dietary needs on account of a medical condition, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is parking available at the festival?
Yes. However, space is limited, so come in early to avoid the hassle. Bonus: we have amazing artists playing early sets just waiting to be checked out.
Does the venue have ATMs?
Yes! Having said that, card payments are also accepted at all our stalls. However, we encourage cash transactions at the stalls and coupon payments at the bar.
To skip the queues, buy your coupons now on Insider!
Are doggos allowed?
Yes. Cattos also. We’re a pet-friendly festival, so the more the merrier! But do make sure they’re habituated to loud noises and crowds at public spaces. We want them to have just as much fun as you!
What can I bring with me?
Your friends and family, good vibes and everything in between. Things that aren’t allowed are:
- Illegal substances, drugs, related paraphernalia
- Cigarettes (although you can buy a sealed packet inside the venue)
- Large chains or spiked jewelry
- Weapons of any kind – including pocket knives, pepper spray, guns, fireworks, or any explosives. The only burns you’re allowed to diss is through your wit.
- Outside food or beverages (including alcohol)
- Professional photo, video or audio equipment (No detachable lenses, tripods, big zooms or commercial use rigs)
Is there an official hashtag?
Yes! Just like no wedding is complete without one, we have an official hashtag too. Use #BACARDÍ NH7 on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, and you might just get a shoutout from us!
How many stages are there?
6 stages over 3 days in Pune. 4 stages over 2 days in Meghalaya. All to make 1 fantastic experience (and a 100% reason to remember the name).
Will I get alcohol at the venue?
Yup, but you’ll only be served alcohol if you’re of or above legal drinking age! (It’s probably one of the few perks of growing older). And if you do drink, be good ok? Handle thy liquor well, so that everyone can have a fantastic time!
What will I get to see at BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender?
There’s post-rock, progressive metal and carnatic fusion for some. There’s Bollywood, hindustani classical and acoustic sets for others. There’s electronic rhythm and blues, chillwave, future soul, rap, and every other genre whose names we couldn’t invent when we had to publish this, all making their way to the happiest music festival.
If that wasn’t enough, the comedy zone at Weekender Pune is brimming with the best comedians to ever pop out of India and across the globe.
Regardless, there’s something for everyone at India’s happiest music festival.
There’s so much music here! Where do I start?
It’s all up on the internets, so look up any artist you think you might look. But to get started, we’ve got your covered.
