The worlds only family music festival
Family Bonding over music
How often can you sit back on the grass with your entire family, pick up some drums or shakers and just jam along with a live band thats playing a few feet away from you. Stomp your feet, sing along and dance as much as you want. It's a safe, fun and clean environment created just for families. Bond together as a family over music - thats what the Groove Gully festival is all about.
Education & Inspiration
An inspiring space created at the festival for kids and parents to play with musical instruments as much as they want. The Groove Gully zones helps kids learn about instruments from all over the world, how they sound, when they're used and how to make music from them. There are no boundaries or limits - play as long as you want as hard as you want and all day if it pleases you.
Explore music from all over the world
You're so close to the musician you can almost touch their instrument. We want you and your family to have intimate and inspiring experiences at our festivals. Artists that perform at our festivals come from all over the world so there's always new music to explore and get inspired by. It could be anything from Jazz, Electronica, Carnatic, Heavy Metal, Folk music or even Hip-Hop. For all Groove Gully festival-goers it's always a jaw-dropping experience.
