If you are hankering for live music after more than a year of lockdown ennui, the ‘World Music Festival’ in Islamabad this weekend might be something right up your alley.
The three-day event will begin on 18 June at the Hill Joint, the rooftop amphitheatre at Lok Virsa National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage. The celebration, held in the collaboration with Echo Records, aims to “bridge the gap between artists and their audience by providing a platform to both.” But there’s more than just live music. According to Hill Joint’s official Instagram page, traditional food stalls will also be there. Food and music surely make for a heady combination!
The festival that ends on 20 June, is a nod to World Music Day that begins on 21 June, the summer solstice. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now the world’s largest annual music event. It is held in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries. Amateur and professional musicians perform on the streets providing free concerts to the public
