(discontinued since 2005)
Festival) is an all-night festival of dance and
music organized by Nrityagram every year.
Thirteen years after the
first Vasantahabba, it is now considered the 'Woodstock'
of classical dance and music in India. Living
legends and leading artists congregate together,
under one sky, to make Vasantahabba what it is
- an unmissable treat!
People arrive at 2 PM,
for an event that starts at 6 PM. They come with
family; they come with friends. They come from
all over India; they even come from abroad. City
dwellers come; so do the villagers. They know
everything about Indian culture; they know nothing
about Indian culture. Yet they will not leave
before 3 or even 8 the next morning!
The history of Vasantahabba
is remarkable. From an audience of 3,000 in 1990,
there were over 40,000 in 2003! The festival has
been covered on the web and on television networks
from around the world. And millions have witnessed
the event LIVE on Doordarshan, the public broadcasting
station of India.
