Echoes of Earth, a Bengaluru-based music festival, plans to focus on the marine world at its third edition scheduled to be held in December this year.
The programme will be held on December 1 and 2, 2018 at the Embassy International Riding School.
According to the organisers, Echoes of Earth celebrates music, art, and culture. The festival in its third edition is scheduled to include a stellar international line-up with sounds of Jazz, Electronic music, Indian rock, pop, underground techno, house, rock and Indian folk.
But music is not their only passion. Echoes of Earth aims to create awareness about the environment and is focused on creating a platform where artists and eco-conscious people can showcase various ecological ideas and concepts to the larger festival audience and create awareness of a more sustainable way of life. The festival will pay homage to marine and aquatic life through larger than life art installations and four stages made from upcycled and recycled material.
The marine ecosystem is said to be among the world’s largest aquatic ecosystem, according to Wikipedia. Marine waters cover two-thirds of the surface of the Earth. Salt marshes, intertidal zones, estuaries, lagoons, mangroves, coral reefs, the deep sea, and the sea floor together make up the marine world. Well-being of the marine ecosystem is also important for that of the terrestrial world. However, the marine world is facing damage from various corners, from climate change to man-made disasters (such as oil spills).
The two-day festival will also hold workshops on music, wellness, and the green lifestyle.
