In Pictures: Live From The Console @ Byke Grounds, Cavelossim Beach, Goa

  • Go Goa!
    Live From The Console, now an established fortnightly feature in the Indian indie event calendar, journeyed to Goa in the form of a two-day festival. The festival took place in the grounds of The Byke Old Anchor Hotel at Cavelossim Beach, Goa, on December 29 and 30.

  • The Colour Compound
    After an inagural set by pop-rock act The Koniac Net, day one of the first ever outdoor Live From The Console saw Mumbai alt-rockers The Colour Compound play a chilled out sunset set.

  • Nikhil D'Souza
    D'Souza's set began well, but did not get a particularly great response from the crowd, most of whom were happily lazing around on the floor.

  • Unhappy
    The singer-songwriter was not pleased with the crowd response, and left the stage in a rather grumpy mood.

  • Peter Cat Recording Co.
    While the Delhi act played an enthusiastic set, the audience was still too caught up with the ambience and the sea breeze to actually groove to the music.

  • The Clown On the 22nd Floor
    Frontman Suryakant Sawhney was not at all please with the lax response, and muttered darkly at the audience before he left the stage.

  • A good end to 2012
    The band closed 2012 with what was highly heralded as one of their best performances, setting the tone well for the headlining act of the night.

  • Cults
    The New York indie act played an engaging hour-long set. Vocalist Madeline Follin guitarist Brian Oblivion shared a great onstage chemistry.

    While the crowd took a while to get going, pretty soon everyone was swaying along."This has definitely got to be one of the kvltest locations the Cults ever played at," Oblivion told an NH7 writer.
    "That girl is a heartthrob, dude" - That same NH7 writer, later.

  • In the mood for some reggae?
    Here we see a young LFTC attendee who, as it seems, is dressed just right for a day of reggae.

  • Tough On Tobacco
    The Mumbai act's set marked one of the highlights of day two. After mellower singer-songwriter sets by Alisha Pais, Siddharth Basrur and American folk singer-songwriter Joe Purdy, TOT's more upbeat set brought the groove to the night.

  • Visually relevant
    Visuals at Live From The Console are always stellar, and the Goa edition of the event was no exception. Visuals for TOT's set were particularly tongue-in-cheek, and included a challan that one is served for smoking in the concert area. #giggle.

  • "Up Across The Hill"
    We wonder if Coutto will ever sing these lyrics looking out at an actual hill. That'd make everyone's day.

  • Dub Mafia
    Bristol drum n' bass act Dub Mafia was up next. Frontwoman Eva Lazarus' immense stage presence got the crowd bouncing.

  • Breezy beach scenes.
    The crowd was going quite wild, by this time. Breezy beaches, beer and good music made for a great vibe at the festival. All eyes were on stage, waiting for Julian Marley's performance.

  • Julian Marley
    The son of reggae pioneer Bob Marley spoke about race, and peace. He performed his own tracks along with his band, The Uprising, as well as his father's well known tracks, including 'Kaya' and 'Is This Love'.

  • Marley on the beach
    "Timeless music like this stays relevant, no matter what corner of the earth you're listening from. Lyrically, this music hit home. Let's not forget our roots. I wish more people understood the significance of Bob Marley's son playing a show in India. It seemed like the perfect setting. You couldn't beat that." - NH7 Sub-Editor Abhimanyu Meer

  • Get Up, Stand Up
    Marley ended his set with 'Get Up, Stand Up', making it a perfect end to the festival as a whole.
