Hospitality chain Social took a leap into the festival scene last year with its very own multi-genre festival, Sauce. A spectacle centred around music, art, crypto and hypewear (slang for cool clothing), Sauce made its debut in Mumbai. Now, Social is taking things up a notch by expanding this contemporary culture festival into a three-city extravaganza. Sauce by Social wrapped its Delhi leg on March 18 and is coming to Mumbai on March 25th and 26th at the scenic Bayview Lawns at Princess Dock in South Mumbai. The Bangalore is slotted for April 8.
The line-up features an acoustic set by genre-free Latin musician Manu Chao, alternative rap from up-and-coming American artist Redveil, The Yellow Diary's poetry infused with a modern soundscape and rap duo Seedhe Maut. Anyasa aka Anish Sood will bring together folk and electronica. Sood is currently signed with English deep house label Anjunadeep and is also the first Indian artist signed to the label. Rising indie stars Osho Jain and Mali will perform along with a special Impresario Brunch with Regenerate Music featuring artists Alina, Bhish, Chhabb, Himay and 2Sensitive.
