After a short pandemic-induced break, the country’s largest crowdsourced, crowdfunded and open sourced music festival hits the ground running. Amongst the beautiful environs of Roaring Farm in Mumbai – the cultural tour de force returns with its community of fans, bands, musicians, artists and everyone who gives a damn about the independent cultural movement in this country. As always, we will bring you the freshest sounds, breaking genres, passionate fans, and the future of Indian alternative music and culture. We are 12 editions and 11 years old – and have featured over 180 Indian acts across 3 cities so far.
Control ALT Delete is the greenhouse where the future sounds of the Indian scene bloom. We have had everyone from MC Stan and Emiway to Divine and Naezy play at CAD in their early days before they broke out to national stardom.
Control ALT Delete 13’s artwork has been designed by the mad genius of Sanskar Sawant aka Chew’d Perfect. He follows a legacy of phenomenal designers like Aaquib Wani, thebigfatminimalist, Moebius, kidsquidy, Sajid Wajid Shaikh, and many more who have contributed their aesthetic to CAD over the years.
Our sponsors are our people – we value each and every contribution made, and each one is mentioned in our patrons list both online and on ground.
