Lollapalooza India 2024
1300 hours, 175 people, 111 instruments, and a 14-foot masterpiece later - the Music Mandala: This installation is an ode to BookASmile’s decade-long commitment to democratise music, making it accessible to all
All the instruments on the Music Mandala will be refurbished and gifted to budding musicians from humble backgrounds to help them kickstart their journey into a world where their talent can be mastered and voices can be heard.
Now here’s where you join in the fun! Head on to the String A Song Wall and get creative!
Whether it’s a groovy tune from the 80s that you sing in the shower, a classic Hindi gaana that reminds you of your 1st love, a banging Bollywood hit that shakes up your soul, or even a Gen Z reel song that refuses to leave your head as you zip around in your car, We invite you to String A Song on seed paper and help us raise funds for the refurbishment of these instruments! For every song strung
Apna time aayega nahi, hum lekar aayenge!
Our country is brimming with talent, ready to overflow into a creative river of music that knows no boundaries or borders. This year at Lollapalooza, it’s not just about our fantastic headliners and big household names. We bring to you the unheard voices, the undiscovered talent, the foundation of our very city:
From the gullies of Dharavi, our cyphers showcase their rapping, beatboxing and breakdancing skills – performances guaranteed to leave you in awe. Get ready to witness raw and unfiltered magic enveloped in Mumbai’s largest music festival today.
The next time you eat a packet of chips, save the plastic packet because if you are anything like Without, you can probably invent something so cool, that you’ll always have a conversation starter wherever you go.
Without is the world’s first brand of recycled sunglasses made from “impossible to recycle” plastic packets of chips… BookASmile and Without come together at Lollapalooza 2024 to help our environment and make you feel more stylish!
And even cooler are the ripple effects as the more sunglasses sold, the more impossible-to-recycle plastic is recycled, hence more empowerment to our waste pickers! A percentage of these sales also goes towards keeping the children of waste pickers in school.
So join us, as well as some of your favourite artists, and grab a pair of sustainable sunglasses. Help the environment and look good while doing it.
