The band-list is an diverse mix of veteran bands such as Parikrama, Thermal And A Quarter and Them Clones and younger bands such as Half Step Down, Cyanide and Advaita amongst others.
Commenting on the festival, Adhiraj Mustafi, Managing Director, Prospect A&M said, "The Indian music industry has come a long way in the last few years. Every year we see more and more international artists coming to India to perform their original music. We at Prospect believe that the Indian music fraternity is not far behind them. They too have successfully been a part of many shows featuring their own music." He added, "The Eastwind Festival is a tribute to these very artistes and will undoubtedly be the best platform for bands to be recognised, appreciated and respected for their true identity"
Apart from the performances, Eastwind will also feature a range of other activities.
