October Fest is back!

Starting tomorrow for three days, you can enjoy Octoberfest, which modeled after the famous Oktoberfest celebrated in Bavaria, Germany every year. The event is scheduled to be held at Palace Grounds from October 27-Oct 29, and will feature not just beer but also music, food, games, parties and shopping!

DJ Ivan, Manoviraj Khosla, DJ Chico and Rohit Barker will feature too. The festival will be spread over 5 acres and will have an international carnival ambience. The live music will include bands like Pentagram, Brahma, and Theme Clones.

There will be a flea market for those inclined towards shopping and other fun things like face painting and tattoo stalls.

The fest begins on Friday, October 27 at 4 pm, on Sat, Oct 28 from 12.30 pm and on Oct 29 from 11.30 am.

The entry is Rs 150 per head. Tickets will be available at the venue.

I had gone for the Octoberfest last year and caught the local band, Thermal and a Quarter’s performance. It was very well organized and turned out to be a nice affair, though I only went on the last day.

So if you’re looking for fun things to do this weekend, this is an option.

    Hey may be it was good last year. This October fest was a damp squib. After all the hype and hoopla it was huge dissappointment.

    Firstly Rs.150/- entrance fee non-redeemable is not okay. However I am ready to buy the argument that this was done in view of keeping a “certain” kinda crowd out. But whats with selling beer at the same prices as everywhere else? And that too in huge plastic glasses with no dustbin in sight!

    Food court had just two stalls and the flea market turned out to be a single store. Only saving grace was some good music by the rock bands. And the day I was there it was Rohit Barker at the DJ dome which kept most of us out of it.

    Atleast now I do know I didn’t miss much.

    The one at the Taj Residency was far better!
