8 years, 10 shows, 3 cities and 100+ acts later – Control ALT Delete, India’s largest crowd-funded DIY music festival, is back! This year, Control ALT Delete will feature 2 days, 5 stages and 45+ artists in the unbelievably green and serene space of Roaring Farm, Malad on 9-10 March 2019. Roaring Farm is an old motocross track spread across 6 acres in a farm in Malad, Mumbai.
Independent music across the country is evolving into its own little communities, sub-genres and subcultures. Control ALT Delete aims to represent and showcase all of these burgeoning scenes while giving the power back to where it belongs – to the listener. The lineup for Control ALT Delete this year has been announced, spanning across 5 stages - Sidestand (Alternative, Indie stage), Survive This (Heavy metal stage), Mumbai 95 (hip hop and cypher stage), Synths & Strings (Singer-songwriter, ambient, pop music stage) and Electric Jungle (Live Hip hop, Electronica). The festival has also introduced CAMPING to this year's edition, with accommodation options at great prices on the festival site itself. The campsite will be managed by award winning company Carvan Trips.
Control ALT Delete follows a 'pay what you want' policy. Every single buck contributed goes towards making the show happen, its logistics of sound, lights and stage, the travel and stay for artists who travel from different cities, and basic expenses like permissions, security and power etc.
