Solis Music and Arts Festival is regarded as the biggest international music festival ever, and with successful events in Islamabad and Lahore earlier this year, it’s finally headed to Karachi this weekend.
The festival aims to create an impact on the country’s art and music industry by bringing a fusion of both under one roof for one whole day, with local and international acts in the lineup. Which is exactly the reason why you should be excited for it. Taking place on Saturday 16th November, Solis is out to sort your weekend out. and here’s why you should make your way to the festival!
Clean Bandit is playing!
Now, if you’re into EDM, this should probably excite you considerably. A huge name in the industry, this British electronic music band has a Grammy to their name if you need any more assurance! With hits and collaborations with Demi Lovato, Sean Paul, Anne-Marie, Zara Larsson and Jess Glynne among others, Clean Bandit is reason enough to attend the Solis Festival.
Soul Potion 42 Day Yoga
Yes, there’s a whole slot dedicated to yoga, with Soul Potion complimenting it. Can you think of any better way to unwind and have a great weekend in the same day at the same location? Probably not. What’s better is that it will take place with Nusrat Hidayatullah, Ayesha Omar, Momina Mustehsan and Sheheryar Munawar.
Hardwell’s protege Kill The Buzz will be in the house
Yes, you read that right. Making his mark on the EDM scene in 2012, Kill The Buzz’s breakthrough track, Party Hard, was released under Hardwell’s label Revealed Recordings, and premiered during Hardwell’s Tomorrowland show in 2012. He’s worked with David Guetta, Benny Benassi, Sander van Doorn, Swanky Tunes to name a few, and we can’t wait to experience his big sound in person!
Better safety measures this time around
After cases of harassment were reported at the Solis Festival in Lahore earlier this year, the festival organizers have decided to allot a separate female-only enclosure to ensure safety. The Pink Circle is exclusively for women, while there are mixed enclosures too if you want to attend with a group of friends.
The lineup also includes a number of other talented artists who have played at various other festivals and made a name for themselves. It’s heartening to see such events being organized in Karachi; for once, after a long time, the youth of the city of lights can attempt to live their best lives.
