Bacardi NH7 Weekender will once again, after quite sometime, be celebrating metal at Weekenders across India this year. With 2 main Weekenders at Meghalaya and Pune, and around 6 Weekender Express shows (one day concerts), they're bringing down some exciting artists besides the metal bands playing too!

Let's take a quick look at the international and Indian metal bands playing Weekender this year.

1. The Dillinger Escape Plan
One of the bands in the lineup on their last world tour, the other being Textures. You would know the band for their legendary stage antics involving burning shit onstage, stage truss climbing and more. Not sure if they're up to it anymore but it'll be fun watching them live for sure.
Where: Pune

2. Textures
They've been here over and over, probably played more shows in India than some Indian bands :P (exaggeration intended) but yes, they're back because they won't be after this gig. But you've gotta fucking love Textures for the prog and tech they've brought into life with sexy albums like Silhouettes and Drawing Circles.
Where: Pune, Meghalaya, Bangalore

3. Steve Vai (Because he's metal AF anyway)
Steve Vai is a legend. I say no more. Steve going 'Getchyo hands off bish' in this picture.
Where: Pune, Meghalaya

4. Skyharbor
They're absolutely killing it in India and the international metal circuit. After having toured with nu metal monsters Deftones, this brainchild of Keshav Dhar has turned into something phenomenal. Really happy for them!
Where: Meghalaya, Bangalore

5. Bhayanak Maut
Oh my. <3
Where: Meghalaya

6. Zygnema
Tearing shit apart. Always. Can't wait to watch them again and again and again.
Where: Pune, Meghalaya

7. Goddess Gagged
The band got back from a hiatus somewhere last year when BlueTree did a comeback tour with the band. It's nice to see them back and I hope they play more shows than they already do.
Where: Meghalaya

8. Kraken
This band was love at first sight for me. If you get to check these guys out, make sure you ask them for their new album. For those of you who don't remember Kraken, you might know they were nominated for the best song category at the Rolling Stone Metal Awards some years ago, for song 'Dance Jane Dance'.
Where: Pune

Other Metal AF artists playing weekender include Khasi Bloodz, Skrat, Mosko, Zokova, and I'm super kicked to see them live. Get your tickets to all editions of Bacardi NH7 Weekender on Insider.
