Theme: Create What You Consume

This event occurred on
February 5, 2019
Bengaluru, Karnataka

If the people who loved music, didn’t create some of their own. If the ones with stories, didn’t tell some
of their own. If the ones who can do things, didn’t do some of their own - we wouldn’t have what we have today. Therefore, with the event, we plan to sow the seed of inspiration. Which would make people do things. Make their first movie, sing their first song, and do things they never thought they could, even
in their wildest dreams.
Keeping all of this and the ones that we left between the lines the theme for the event is
‘Create What You Consume.’
