T.A.A.Q. a performance worth the wait!

Having built its fan base across the globe, fans at the MAD Festival made it a point to be at stage 1 to catch Thermal and a Quarter do what they do best. An electrifying performance by the band at the palace left ll in attendance wanting more.

When asked what they thought of the destination for the festival, T.A.A.Q. went back to their college concerts where sweat, dirt and music went hand in hand and how they were surprised at how pleasant and inviting Ooty was for a music festival.

Cloudy skies and a slight drizzle, brought out the big orange canopies on stage, but that was no reason to slow it down. Beautiful skies and the magnificent palace only made the performance even more memorable.

Glad that music in India was finally getting its platform, T.A.A.Q. was all thumbs up for the M.A.D. Festival at The Fernhills Palace, Ooty.

Performing at a palace – the EXPERIENCE!

India’s best bands were at the MAD Festival at Ooty and what a treat for every music enthusiast. “Woodstock comes to Ooty” they said… with fans sprawled across the lawns, the feeling was pretty much of Woodstock!

Apart from the sheer thrill of music festivals coming to India, the bands were amazed at the location! Kudos to Cobalt for pulling of a festival at a PALACE!

HERITAGE MEETS CONTEMPORARY MAGIC

In its continued efforts to feature Ooty’s tribal legacy, the Royal Family at Ooty opened the first day of MAD festival with an invocation by the TODA and KOTA tribes. Performing in their tribal attire, the groups set the mood to this magical mix of tribal, contemporary, funk and jazz music festival!

The MADness then unfolded with KRYPTOS taking centrestage! Needless to say a mind-blowing performance!

Meanwhile, at stage 2, or as we call it Calaloo, ringing it in Royal Style at Fernhills Palace was VAYALI, a Kerala based Bamboo Orchestra. Melodious, soothing and calm, no better ask on a serene morning under a tree at the MAD Festival at Ooty.

Then came rolling in with bursts of colour was SWARATHMA and their music with a message. The MAD festival got MADDER with SWARATHMA doling out music that got the crowd jumping for more.

As the sun slowly went down, a walk through the woods and through Ooty’s very own funky bazaar at the MAD festival was truly beautiful.

The evening only got better with power packed performances by RAGHU DIXIT PROJECT and INDIAN OCEAN. With the sudden surge of people it was evident they knew what they wanted and did not go back unsatisfied.

Day 1 saw a magnificent end… only to let us know what we have in store for the next 2 days!
