Backdoors is an extraordinary outdoor concert experience produced exclusively by The Humming Tree. We bring to you, stand alone shows 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 with experiences loaded with good energies that everyone can both absorb and contribute to. Backdoors is about keeping it simple and making space for good change in the industry by bringing music to your very own backyards. The goal is to eventually launch waves of revolution to stand alongside artists in support of their art. You will see that the festival has grown 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 local talent, to cushion their growth, and to enable development with clarity, and to leave behind things that inadvertently make art and performance something that it doesn't need to be.
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.
