The thousands of attendees visited events and activities in various categories such as Children, Cinema, Dance, Food, Heritage Walks, Literature, Music, Standup Comedy, Street, Theatre, Urban Design & Architecture, Visual Arts and Workshops. Following the precedence set over the last few years, the newly-introduced genres of Food and Stand-up Comedy once again garnered a lot of attention and attendance. The traditional favourites Cinema and Theatre continued to entertain the audiences with breath-taking performances on stage and cinematic excellence on screen. Theatre witnessed some of the best performances such as Pitaji Please & Locha Gotcha.
Cross Maidan, which hosts the Dance & Music sections was thronging with crowds eager to grab front row seats even on weekdays. Not surprising though, with the music line-up comprising diverse talent like Jonita Gandhi, Taufiq Qureshi, Shilpa Rao & Amaan & Ayaan Ali Bangash.

70 EMG is responsible for the overall management and production of the festival and to supplement production managers to the individual curators. The event saw a footfall of half a million attendees over the course of nine days across the 15 venues that form a part of the festival space. For the smooth running of 600+ events across 14 verticals, 70 EMG employs 14 managers with their separate teams, with each vertical being managed as an individual event.

Like every year, a fresh 70 EMG team set out to collaborate with the KGA to overcome new challenges to create a better experience for the people who come to visit the festival, and I am thrilled to say that we have produced a brilliant event together again, taking the event to greater heights.”
