Control ALT Delete
March 9, 1:00 pm - March 10, 10:30 pm
8 years, 10 shows, 3 cities and 100+ acts later – we are back with Control ALT Delete, India’s largest crowd-funded DIY live show.
This year, Control ALT Delete will feature 2 days, 5 stages and 45+ artists in the unbelievably green and serene space of Roaring Farm, Malad on 9-10 March 2019. Roaring Farm is an old motocross track spread across 6 acres in a farm in Malad, Mumbai. It has hosted Control ALT Delete 10 as well and is a unique venue with greenery, a lake and plenty of space in the north of Mumbai.
Independent music across the country is evolving into its own little communities, sub-genres and subcultures. Control ALT Delete aims to represent and showcase all of these burgeoning scenes while giving the power back to where it belongs – to the listener. The lineup for Control ALT Delete this year has been announced, spanning across 5 stages – Sidestand (Alternative, Indie stage), Survive This, Mumbai 95, Synths & Strings (Afternoon stage with singer-songwriters, ambient pop, etc.) and Electric Jungle (Live Hip hop, Electronica). Control ALT Delete has also announced camping for the first time ever on days of the festival with Carvan trips.
A ‘Pay What You Want’ model has been the bedrock of Control ALT Delete’s philosophy since its existence. This is the outlook that has allowed us to be an inclusive and safe space for music fans from all walks of life irrespective of their economic status, sexual orientation or musical preference. We don’t discriminate ever. Everyone who believes that music and the work of musicians has value, and want to experience cultural and musical freedom is welcome. Contributors can simply visit www.controlaltdelete.in and make their contributions. They can also check the contribution slabs and avail certain perks on their contribution amounts.
Control ALT Delete has a no logo policy and all our sponsors are the contributors, actual people and bot brands, who make this happen year on year. We have been blessed to grow from a small gig to a two day, multi-stage showcase year on year. That trust is solely because of our curation and transparency when it comes to finance.
Each rupee contributed is accounted for and our accounts of all shows have been shared on public platforms for people to evaluate, question and hopefully get inspired to start their own scenes. We look forward to yet another power packed edition of the festival.
