24th, 25th, & 26th May,

A unique festival started in May 2009 when a few musicians and like-minded people decided to get away from New Delhi for a few days. They chose a picturesque resort at Naukuchiatal, at the foothills of the himalayas which became their Escape. Escape, has grown since then to become one of India’s foremost outdoor art, music & camping festival.

The Escape Festival of Art and Music, which has established itself in the past four years, is the perfect way to spend some quality time with friends and family. It is also one of the first festivals in the country set around a scenic getaway appealing to young and old alike.

An initiative by Potheads, the Escape Festival of Art & Music, is a creative retreat and will feature bands, artists, writers, photographers, painters, graffiti artists, performance artists, tattoo artists & potters, in a mélange of talent. In addition to that, the festival will also feature a festival camp, a film festival and a flea market at the breathtaking venue right on the shores of Lake Naukuchiatal, Uttarakhand.

Three days. Two stages. One pristine lake. The lilt of music in the hills, the sublime experience of art, the unfettered sense of joy as you give into the magic of the moment.

In its 6th edition, The Escape Festival of Art and Music- will see the performances spread over three days and two stages – The Soul Garden Stage and The Magic Forest Stage.
