Jay Shah, Vice President - Cultural Outreach at Mahindra Group, said, “The Mahindra Group has always been at the forefront of promoting and exploring diverse art, music and culture through various initiatives and programs. The Mahindra Roots Festival was born out of this same need. With a truly exceptional line-up for its debut edition, the festival will bring forth and celebrate India’s dynamic culture and its rich history and past in a way that deeply resonates with today’s youth. I also hope the festival further encourages the Gen Z and millennials to return and stay in touch with their roots despite their sights set on the future.”

VG Jairam, Founder of Hyperlink Brand Solutions, added, “Community and celebration of diverse cultures are what defines us as a collective. We are glad that our involvement generates much admiration from both the artist communities and the audience as well. Our programs are conceptualised to establish a connection with our current and new-age audiences. The buzz around the Mahindra Roots Festival has been growing. And, we are glad to be teaming up with the Mahindra Group as this will surely help us push the boundaries to expand on the philosophy of bringing the roots of our diverse Indian culture on a single platform.”

He further added, “The Mahindra Roots Festival, with its incredibly diverse line-up, promises to take fans on a soulful cultural journey with an element of discovery, making the festival the living, beating heart of Indian arts and culture.”
