Last year’s inaugural Invasion Festival had a decidedly electro-rock theme running through it, right from headliners The Prodigy to the rest of the lineup that included Pentagram, Pendulum, the Midival Punditz and Jalebee Cartel. This year, however, the festival’s organisers have announced that the world’s biggest DJ and remixer/producer to the stars David Guetta will headline the 2012 Invasion Festival.
The inaugural edition of the Storm Festival, India’s first ever camp-out music festival, was set to take place in November. Heavy rains in the days leading up to the outdoor festival forced the promoters to reschedule the event. This week, however, the promoters have announced that the Storm Festival is back up and running and will take place in the original Coorg hills location on the 20th and 21st of January.
