The third edition of 100 Pipers India Music Week, presented by Rock Street Journal, returns this year, from December 4 to 8. The showcase festival, celebrating the spirit of live music, will be held in Mumbai, with artists from India, Norway, and France performing at The Blue Frog and Cafe Zoe in Lower Parel. This year's line-up features eclectic artists spanning multiple genres, from experimental-progressive jazz, electronica, blues, alt-rock and rock 'n' roll, with renowned Norwegian jazz ensemble Jaga Jazzist, Samsaya (Norway), Blackstratblues, Soulmate, Success (France), Nischay Parekh, The Supersonics, Spud in the Box, French Cowboy and the One, PINKNOISE, Sky Rabbit, and many more taking the stage, with the showcase gigs being presented in association with the Blue Frog.

The idea behind the programming is in concurrence with the core RSJ philosophy of “Discover. Publish. Showcase.” – wherein audiences will be able to experience some of the best independent music from across multiple genres. Festival Director, Anirban Chakraborty, states: “We’re very excited about the artists coming in this year – and especially honoured by the interest many of them have shown in performing at IMW. There is no doubt that this annual festival and conference is beginning to achieve what it set out to – promoting and supporting the independent music scene in India.”

India Music Week III also features a free two-day music conference organized in collaboration with Rikskonsertene/Concerts Norway and the Royal Norwegian Embassy, and in association with the True School of Music. The conference will be held at the True School of Music on December 4 and 5.

It focuses around the two main themes of Music & New Technology and Education, with a series of panel discussions and presentations. There will also be roundtable discussions to facilitate exchanges among music professionals from India and abroad (around themes such as live bands in India today, sponsorship, touring in India and abroad).

The festival is the brainchild of the late Amit Saigal, the founder of Rock Street Journal, as a response to the need to consolidate the Indian independent music industry through a sustainable platform interacting with the global marketplace.
