When Chai Met Toast
The Humming Tree brings to you Backdoors 2018 - two stand alone shows in Bengaluru and Mumbai featuring some of the biggest artists in the world for all the love that can be filled into special warehouse venues and outdoor spaces. But that's not all, each aspect of the festival is uniquely knit together, along with the great lineup, with experiences loaded with good energies that everyone can both absorb and contribute to. Backdoors is about keeping it simple and making space for great LIVE music that can be appreciated in the right climate thats all about the music and nothing else. The festival has and will grow along with its parent values at the upcoming edition; an ethos that The Humming Tree proudly claims as its own - to provide a platform for real talent and to facilitate a culture that has access to and an appreciation for the talent on display. We are so excited about this 2018 edition and lineup and can’t wait to share this experience with you!
Edition 1 of Backdoors featured Steven Wilson (United Kingdom), José González (Sweden), and Patrick Watson (Canada)
The Humming Tree
Open since June 2013, The Humming Tree is an arts, music and performance venue based in Bangalore, India. We’re built on a foundation of passion and love for the arts. We provide a nurturing environment for both artists and audiences to explore the varied creative resources we have access to in the world around us. Over the last four years, we’ve been the kind of space that positively preserves, sustains and changes creative discourse for the future thus becoming the city's go-to creative incubator. Each one of you contribute to making this possible.
We’re currently curating 20+ programmes a month panning across not only music but also film, culture, education, comedy, theatre, poetry, storytelling, fundraisers, conversations on the environment and sustainability and supporting social change and awareness through our various projects.
