Lineup and venue details of the three-day festival are yet to be revealed.
The eighth edition of beer giant Kingfisher’s The Great Indian Octoberfest will take place in home city Bangalore between October 12-14. The lineup of the three-day music festival hasn’t been announced yet, but in the recent past metal acts like Poets Of The Fall (2011) and Lacuna Coil (2010) have headlined the event. While the Finnish Poets will be back in the country this week, bets are on for which international (metal?) act will headline the festival this year. Who do you think should headline the festival in 2012? Leave a comment and let us know.
With the future of go-to venue Palace Grounds looking uncertain, we’re hoping Mr Mallya’s clout in the city can bring back the beloved gig center for this event. More from The Great Indian Octoberfest 2012 as we hear it. In the mean time, check out this fan video of Poets Of The Fall performing ‘Carnival of Rust’ at last year’s edition of the festival.
