The Goa Music Festival kicks off on April 8 with the first grand inaugural event at Elephant Art Café in Anjuna Beach, Goa. With over 150 performances or performing groups scheduled over the two months of April and May at about 40 different locations, the Goa Music Festival will cover and traverse the length and breadth of Goa from Canacona in South Goa, to Morjim, Ashwem and Arambol in North Goa.
The main stops will include the tourist spots of Anjuna, Vagator, Baga, Calangute, Candolim, Miramar and Panaji in the North, and Majorda, Benaulim, Colva, Cavelossim and Palolem in South Goa. The brain-child of DJ Jenny D, the Goa Music Festival is coordinated by DJ Frank Franklyn.
The Goa Music Festival will see different genres, styles and types of music and musicians like jazz, pop, rock, reggae, retro, blues and Bollywood come together under one umbrella. About 60 of Goa's best DJs will also perform alongside the musicians and bands. This is an initiative to promote Goan music, Goan musicians, bands, DJs and also indirectly promote Goan food and culture, according to Franklyn. The performances will be held at different restaurants, clubs and hang-outs around Goa all under the banner of the Goa Music Festival.
