Drummers in the woods having some great time at goM.A.D festival, Fernhills Palace Ooty

As the bands played on stage, a few others created their own music in the woods at Ferrnhills Royale Palace Ooty. They used waste drums, bottles, sprays, PVC pipes! Everything seemed to create some music, and how the crowds enjoyed it! Take a look at one such fun evening, during the goM.A.D festival 2013 in Ooty

Having Fun can be soooo tiring at goMAD in Ooty

As Day 2 at goM.A.D culminates, we have already heard almost 32 bands! The atmosphere is electric and the woods are alive with music and art! So many new talents have performed and so many interesting stories to share.

007The huge lawns at the Fernhills Palace are the perfect setting for such a unique concept- 2 stages with continuous live performances, lovely art instillations in the woods, relaxed atmosphere and great food and drinks… what more could you ask for? The mornings are spent hearing great music while lazing on the grass. But that’s not all, there’s a fun Photo Booth from Pictureculate who offer you amazing props! Wear the props + get wacky+ and a cool pic is ready in no time! What a fun way to remember the M.A.D festival J

People have come from various backgrounds and races, but what unites them is the goM.A.D festival. Enthusiastic photographers and professional ones are having the time of their life capturing the vibrancy, the spontaneity of it all!

The woods through which one has to pass to reach the other stage, just adds a different dimension to the whole atmosphere. It is almost like being in a fairy tale, where art installations peep from every branch of the tree and the moist earth adds freshness to the flea market here. If you want to have some fun, there is a caricature stall! Have a caricature done of yourself or your gang at M.A.D, It’s all about having fun! There was even a cool group that created music with empty drums, paint cans, empty bottles and PVC pipes!

As night sets in, the music comes alive with lovely lights playing on the stage! The chill in the air does not matter and evenings offer the perfect ambience for some mad dance moves, while the bonfire in the night offers a place to make new friends. It is Music… Masti and Madness all the way

Mr. Shishir Mishra writes on Tripadvisor with the name SUN-VI


“What a wonderful place!!! It is a huge well maintained property with lots of trees, amazing views and massive and beautifully maintained lawns in ooty.
There are golf carts to take you around the property. At each turn on the road inside the property you are left thinking how royal it would be when the palace must be hosting its King long back.
The rooms are good, Jacuzzis in bathrooms, ornamented dining hall (durbar hall), hundreds of pictures of the bygone days and innumerable memories, this Palace is certainly one of the better ones I have stayed so far.
The service is good and the staff is helpful. Kids will enjoy playing in the huge lawns or some indoor games. You can sit by the bonfire in the evening and with each sip of your favourite drink keep going down the memory lane!!!
A must watch even if you are not staying here!!!”
All we can say is that we are deeply touched by your kind words. A big Thank you! You really made our day. We look forward to serving you in future.

Isha Sharvani’s dance video from the MAD festival Ooty

As Isha Sharvani performed at Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace to a mesmerized audience, all we could think of was capturing this great dance form into a video and treasuring it for life. Isha is an accomplished acrobat dancer, whose claim to fame were the flawless aerial moves in the movie Kisna. More recently she has become a household name for her beautiful renditions of various bollywood dance numbers on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, a popular show on Colours Television channel.

Daksha Sheth Dance Company and Isha have put together the dance show named Shiva Shakti that was performed at Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace. They will be touring this show for the year 2012. It is a Tantrik interpretation of freedom. It is a representation of a desire to unbound, and go beyond boundaries. Seeing Isha perform live against the backdrop of an erstwhile palace was magical and the vast expanses of lawns made the dance interpretation of being free come alive. The dance form, though contemporary is an improvement on various Indian dance forms and skills.

With great reviews from Madhuri Dixit, Remo and Karan Johar, along with some astounding scores, we are sure that she will emerge as one of the toughest contests to beat on this show. Here’s wishing Isha great success for her television endeavor. We hope to see many more brilliant performances on the show, just like the one that we witnessed at Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace, Ooty.
