Majuli Music Festival 2022: Majuli Music Festival is an annual music festival held in the beautiful naturescape of Majuli by the bank of the river Brahmaputra and its tributaries in November. The event features live music performances by approx. 30+ independent artists from across India.


Majuli Music Festival, with a goal to promote rural tourism, uplift the local community, and make Majuli self-sufficient, is here to provide enthusiasts with a myriad of perceptions through music, art, culture, food, and, of course, traditional Rice Wine.

The third edition of India’s largest Indie music festival, the Majuli Music Festival, comes to an end that enchanted art lovers.

By being a Zero-Waste Festival, it is also an effort to preserve the magical island of Majuli. The festival yearns to promote “hope” among the Majuli community for a better future by featuring LIVE indie music, camping under the stars, traditional ethnic food, and a lush green view.

Majuli, Assam’s cultural capital, hosted the third Majuli Music Festival from November 25 to 27. This festival aims to instill ‘Hope’ in the Majuli community about their future. Majuli, Assam’s cultural centre, is the world’s largest riverine island, located on the mighty Brahmaputra. It is home to 1.6 lakh people who live in approximately 230 villages with no urban settlement. The serene land is home to tribal ethnic groups and features beautiful paddy fields and hyacinth-filled ponds.

 

The Majuli Music Festival foundation has collaborated with The Midway Journey, The Northeast Waste Collective, and RIGBO to promote sustainable waste management and environmental protection, thereby encouraging indigenous practises among the Northeast population and putting Majuli on the map. Designing a three-day customised plan for Majuli’s environmental context is part of the festival’s plan. By ‘Zero-Waste,’ it is meant that no waste will be burned, dumped, or sent to landfill, and that biodegradable, non-biodegradable, and sanitary waste will be separated and sent for recycling.
