Zorba, New Delhi will host the two-day event that will see performances by the likes of The Raghu Dixit Project, menwhopause, Ashvin Mani Sharma and Them Clones.
W.O.R.M.E stands for “World Of Rock, Metal and Electronica”, according to the official Facebook page of the Nokia Lumia W.O.R.M.E Festival. The idea behind establishing this world of rock, metal and electronica, according to the same page, is to create a hub where artists from different spaces can interact and share music and talk to other artists and find out what is happening in the independent space in India. The organisers say, “The primary objective of WORME is to support, engage and promote artists and grow the music scene in India,” and the reason they have launched the W.O.R.M.E Festival is so artists can realise their dreams and get national exposure and more opportunities. It seems like a pretty noble idea.
The festival will be held at Zorba, New Delhi between December 14 and December 15 and will feature performances by at least 18 Indian indie acts including folk giants The Raghu Dixit Project, New Delhi alt-rock acts The Circus, menwhopause (pictured) and Them Clones and electronica artists like British producer and DJ Anil Chawla and New Delhi producer Ashvin Mani Sharma (of Jalebee Cartel) among many others. The organisers also held a contest that saw four bands selected from four ‘zones’, namely the North, East, West and South of India, and these bands will perform on December 14.
