What is Beantown Backyard Festival?
A two-day festival with brilliant music, unlimited food, and eccentric experiences, is all set to be held this October in Bengaluru.
As explained by the director of Beantown Backyard Festival, Kabir Ahmed, to Economic Times, the sheer idea behind this festival is the nostalgia of old Bengaluru (Bangalore), a time when things were much simpler and the city was not an IT (information technology) hub.
The festival also got its name from this idea . Bangalore, when translated in Kannada, means the town of boiled beans. In addition to this, the term Backyard is a metaphorical term for Nandi Hills, as the backyard of Bengaluru.
When is Beantown Backyard Festival?
The two-day festival will be held on 27 October 2018 and 28 October 2018.
