The Humming Tree to bring 'Backdoors Festival' to Mumbai this year

The forthcoming edition of Backdoors will see it grow from a standalone show in Bengaluru to two festivals across Bengaluru (17 February) and Mumbai (14 February) featuring some impressive contemporary acts.


Organised by The Humming Tree, Backdoors aims to keep the festival simple and make space for great live music to be enjoyed within a creative and appreciative environment.

Backdoors 2018 has announced that progressive metal act TesseracT and indie-folk singer Mahesh Raghunandan will join the lineup for their forthcoming festival alongside artists including rapper, singer, drummer and producer Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals, alternative rock quartet Wolf Alice, hip-hop and spoken word artist Watsky, English drummer Danny Goffey (from erstwhile rockers Supergrass), Indie singer-songwriter Prateek Kuhad, hip-hop act Divine and folk-rock band When Chai Met Toast.

The Humming Tree will be presenting this edition in collaboration with Amnesty International India.

"We're thrilled that our second edition is bigger than the first.  We aim to provide a platform that pushes bands and artists that we feel really need to be heard." says Nikhil Barua, Founder of The Humming Tree. "We know our Bangalore audiences are hungry for good music, and this year it's great to be expanding the festival to Mumbai. Bigger platform, more variety. See you there!"
