It is that time of the year again when a beach in a far-flung village off the Chennai coast comes alive. It is finally that time of the year again when you take out your beachwear buried under a mound of debris and hit the beach along with surfers who rule the playful waves. And to keep you company, you will also find some of the finest musicians and yoga instructors from around the world join you for the fun. Yes, this is the Covelong Point Surf, Music and Yoga Festival 2019.
This global festival gets bigger and better every year. While surfing remains the biggest attraction, the annual event will feature a global music lineup spread across three stages, yoga and meditation classes and alternative healing workshops with the Bay of Bengal in the backdrop. For the shopaholics, there will be an open flea market for trinkets, baubles and curiosities. Along with this, there will be food stalls to fill your tired growling stomachs and art installations to satisfy the aesthete in you.
As you walk through the beach with the wind in your hair and sand stuck between your fingers, you will witness a beautiful confluence of classical music and surf along with a medley of city folks and local villagers. This makes the festival quite special and unlike any other in this country. Talent and passion for surfing unite these folks, who come together to display their killer moves when they cut through the waves while the audience goes crazy cheering loudly for each of these participants.
This year will see artists like Lady Kash, Yogev Haruvi and some fusion bands like Lagori who are sure to make you groove to their beats the whole time.
So go grab that sturdy backpack of yours, some sunscreen, your crazy cool beachwear and head out to the festival that has something for everyone, just like the city that introduced this amazing festival to the rest of the world. So enjoy the water, sand and culture fest because the entry is absolutely free. What else could we ask for! Don't waste your time looking for transport in the city and have a hassle-free commute by booking a convenient cab with Savaari. Save the dates, 23rd to 25th August, on your calendar. Let the madness begin!
