25 November 2011

Mumbai, 25 November 2011: This festive season Vivanta by Taj launches 'The Vivanta Barn Festival', powered by Blue Frog, to add some unconventional spice to the Goan Christmas celebrations. The two day festival, which will take place on 25th and 26th December, 2011 at Vivanta by Taj - Holiday Village, Goa as well as Vivanta by Taj - Fort Aguada, Goa, will offer a motley of instrumental eclectic, alternative and progressive rock, blues, folk and retro musical performances that are sure to bring out the classy bohemian in everyone.

The Vivanta Barn Festival in-keeping with the relaxed 'country barn' theme, invites guests to let their hair down in the lap of sophistication. Combined with the magical setting and great music is also a select menu of Chef Rego's delicious cuisine.

The festival, a manifestation of the Vivanta by Taj brand, signifies contemporary sophistication and appreciation for the good things in life and also exudes the brand's attributes of vividness and vivacity. And what better way to attract the discerning urbane traveller than through creative platforms that foray into alternative music, art and culture.

This year, the festival will see performances by well-known artistes and bands like the Taal Inc. Drum Circle, The Other People, Shkabang, The Petri Dish Project, Blue Conscience among others in an exclusive tie-up with Blue Frog, which is India's premiere live music performance club.
