Chetana and Shridhar Kinger from Pune loved the Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace as a backdrop for a music festival. Ferrnhills Royaal Palace has been hosting goM.A.D music festival that was recently held in Ooty for the past 2 years and it has been an awesome experience for us too! We love the amalgamation of music, art and dance at such a historical place and at such a beautiful location. Watch the video to know these youngsters views
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
Recreating one of the most memorable qawwalis “Duma Dum Mast Kalandar” at Ferrrnhills RoyaalPalace was a brilliant experience for us. We wish all the best to the cast and crew of the hindi movie David and Bejoy Nambiar the director. We also thank them for choosing Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace as a shoot location for this action packed movie.

Papon enthralled the audience at Fernhills Palace Ooty, at the recently concluded MAD festival. The very talented Papon, did it again in the latest episode of MTV coke studio, where his performance of Tokari, has caught on everybody’s imagination.
Tokari is a folk song from Assam. Tokari is a form of traditional folk music in Assam, which also originates from the Assamese instrument dukari. Papon has added a lot of electronic elements to the song. This form of folk music is slowly dying out in Assam & this is Papon’s attempt to give it some focus and bring it back to life.
It’s more than three months, since the MAD festival and we are still dizzy from the glitz and frenzy that unfolded for three days in the month of April at Ferrnhills RoyaalPalace Ooty. Three days of Music, Art and Dance, a whirlwind of activities, soulful music right from rock to folk and free spirited indulgence – all on the star-lit lawns and woods of the Ferrnhills Property.
Our 40 acre property was milling with music lovers, travelers, photographers and the like. All had come together to celebrate music that cuts across genres and countries. The ‘MAD’ culmination of music, arts and cultures against the backdrop of our Heritage Hotel, kind of transported us back in time, when Maharaja’s patronized various art and cultural activities to promote a talent or creed. It was befitting that a contemporary music festival be held in the erstwhile summer palace of Maharaja of Mysore, in the picturesque hill station of Ooty. As the likes of Raghu Dixit and Papon performed to a live audience, everybody relaxed and rejuvenated in the perfect weather of Ooty.
Our guest list included Raghu Dixit, Papon, Indian Ocean and Isha Sharvani. As they soaked in the colonial charm, we strived to ensure that all the guests and the audience got to enjoy every minute of their time spent at Ferrnhills. It was a MAD extravaganza that had continuous performances on two stages built on either side of the woods at Fernhills property. The woods doubled up as the bar and a flea market, where audience could relax and shop to their heart’s content. Big brands like Kingfisher, Blackdog and Signature had set up this bar in the nature’s lap. The jam sessions and the paintball zone added the zing factor to this vibrant festival . We look forward to hosting another M.A.D festival in near future.
