Ritviz Announces Debut Edition Of YUV Fest In Pune

Ritviz YUV Festival

One of India’s biggest electronic music acts at the moment, Ritviz is gearing up for a massive season! Fresh off the announcement of his upcoming debut album ‘DEV‘ which is slated for a release later this month, the ‘Udd Gaye‘ hitmaker took to social media earlier yesterday to unveil his very own festival.

Known as Casa Bacardi on Tour presents YUV Fest which is being brought to life as part of a collaboration with Bacardi and Ritviz’s long-time manager and business partner Rahul Sinha, the festival will be embellished with real-world comedy and music performances. Conceptualised with a vision to give an impetus to the burgeoning independent scene, it will travel to 9 cities across India over the next 3 months starting October 2019.

The first leg of the festival will be hosted in Pune on October 11th followed by boutique editions in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Indore, Kolkata and Guwahati. Artists featuring on the line-up for the debut edition include names like Seedhe Maut, SickFlip, Dorwin, Kenny Sebastian, Sumukhi Suresh and Aadar Malik, all of whom will be performing alongside Ritviz himself who will be showcasing his upcoming LP live for the first time. Talking about his very own festival, the young star said in a statement:

“There will be a lot of giggles, jollities and laughter guaranteed! Storytelling is a cornerstone of the festival and it will serve as a platform to showcase some of the most enterprising independent artists from the music and comedy circuit of the country. The next five years are going to be huge for the independent scene in India with several entities coming forward to help indie artists do what moves them and encourage their passion. It’s imperative that we do not emulate the West and create ground-breaking content of our own that we can present to the world and festivals like these are a need of the hour. I’m happy to collaborate with Bacardi who endorses the vision of the festival.”
