Roaring Farm, Mumbai
Why Contribute?

This is not charity. This isn’t a favour. This is belief. Belief in the value that original music has, belief in the time, effort and skill that independent musicians put to bring out out fresh sounds and experiences untouched or influenced by “brand guidelines” or “item numbers”.

Every single buck contributed goes towards making the show happen, its logistics of sound, lights and stage, the travel and stay for artist who travel from different cities and basic expenses like permissions, security and power etc.

All profits are equally divided between ALL ACTS PERFORMING at the show – irrespective of size , scale or seniority.  They say music is a great leveller and we abide by the same

For every contribution there is a guaranteed deliverable from our end.

Roaring Farm, Malad

The beautiful dirt track with its own lake is situated in a quiet corner of Mumbai. Nestled under a thick cover of trees, Roaring farm is a unique venue situated just around the corner of the dreams. Sprawling over 6 acres it is also one of the biggest dirt tracks around. Beautified with pristine coconut and mango trees all around, Roaring Farm is home to 5 stages, food, shopping, art and the lot at Control ALT Delete.
