Delhi’s jazz lovers got a chance to treat themselves with a melodious weekend as the 7th edition of the Delhi Jazz International Festival returned to the Capital from September 23 to 25, 2017 at Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri.
Over 11 bands and artistes from countries such as France, Israel, South Korea, Mexico, Taiwan, South Africa and India enthralled music lovers at the event which saw over 15000 people in audience over the three days of its organizing. The event was organized by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) under the aegis of the Ministry of External Affairs and was managed on-ground by CS Direkt.
CS Direkt won the execution mandate of the festival following a multi-agency pitch and managed all aspects of the event right from PR, OOH duties and logistical support to the overall event planning and execution.
Apart from the soothing music and the performances of ace bands, other highlights of the event were stage setup and venue décor that also included giant art installations that symbolized the sub-genres of Jazz.
The festival was tremendously received by the audiences as well as the high-profile government officials and guests who attended the event.
Speaking about it, Prasun Kumar- GM- CS & BD, CS Direkt commented, “It is always interesting to work on music festivals and large format events and the Delhi Jazz International Festival was no different. The festival is truly a one of its kind event and saw large number of audiences pouring in across the 3 days and while it was a delight managing all aspects of the event, we also had to be very careful in terms of security arrangement and protocols given the number of VVIP’s attending the event. The biggest challenge in execution came in when there was a massive downpour on September 22 morning, making us feel completely helpless since we were dealing with an outdoor location. However, we continued with the efforts and thankfully, the rained stopped to enabling us in executing the most well received edition of the music property so far.”
