An evening of rock, metal and electronica

Dec 7, 2012, DHNS:

Delhiites thronged to Blue Frog on December 2, when Nokia Lumia Worme (World Of Rock Metal Electronica) Festival came up with their second edition. ‘The Uncertainty Principle’ qualified from North zone for the finale which will be held across two days, on December 14-15, at Zorba.

The Fest, a unique engagement platform for independent musicians across India also saw performances by Delhi-based metalcore band ‘Artillerie’ who put up a scintillating performance and wowed the frenzied audience at the venue.

The judges selected the winning band from amongst the five bands that were short-listed for the prelims, viz. The Uncertainty Principle, Dementia, Ebonix, Rogue Saints, Bridge To Elsewhere who made sure that their thrilling performances make the enthusiastic fans scream for more.

The winning band will compete with the finalists from Mumbai (The Beatroute), Bengaluru (Clown with A Frown) and Kolkata (Buddha Therapy). The finale will also feature live performances by some of India’s leading artists/bands including Raghu Dixit, Them Clones, Menwhopause, Boom Baba, Vaeya, The Circus, Kohra, Devoid, Zygnema, Skrypt, Mafaiza among a total of 30 artists.

Michael Khanna, the brain behind Worme Fest, said, “The response we have received from Delhi audiences is mind-boggling. The fans here have an unbelievable appetite for good live music. We’re confident that there isn’t a better musical treat for them than the Worme Fest.”

Worme is an engagement platform for independent musicians across India and is a hub where artists in the rock, blues, jazz, fusion, metal and electronica genres interact and share information about what’s going on in the world of music; the latest happenings, events and trends that are defining their music scene and the people driving those trends. The most exceptional thing about the festival is that it cuts across genres and doesn’t represent just one.

“The objective of this platform is to initiate a movement within the country which is endorsed, supported and enjoyed by professional artists, sponsors, music labels and the music lovers. Worme will enable the next generation of independent musicians to get opportunities, recognition, growth and exposure and provide them with exposure and appreciation at both national and international levels,” sums up Michael.

One of the several unique initiatives to promote independent musicians in India is the creation and launch of a national level annual music festival, the Worme Festival, which attracts the best upcoming talent from across the country and provides them with exposure and opportunities nationally so as to help them pursue their dreams further.
