New Delhi: WindSong Music Festival is back with it's second edition and Bollywood actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar will perform at the gala mix of music, food, drinks, adventure games and forest camping against a picturesque backdrop.

The fest, organised by Percept Live and World Of Yellow, will be held in Hyderabad from Nov 29-30, New Delhi Jan 24-25 and Mumbai Feb 28- March 1.

“I'm really looking forward to perform for the first time at a music festival. I can't wait to get up close and personal with my fans. Farhan Live has always been about moulding the 'artist-to-fan' direct connect as well as spreading a social message through my music to young audiences,” Farhan said in a statement.

Along with the “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” star, the music festival has brought together an eclectic array of musicians like Leslie Lewis, Alien Chutney, Vir Das, Ankur Tewari and Sidd Coutto.

In this endeavour to showcase the Indian talent in Sufi, rock and soul music, the organisers have not ignored their environmental commitment.

All the power for the fest will be sourced from natural sources like solar, bio-fuel and natural gas generators and on the festival grounds there will be recycle stations, compost stations, water stations where attendees can refill their water bags instead of wasting bottled water. Bio-degradable and edible cups will be used instead of regular plastic cups.

The festival organisers have also partnered with automobile major Maruti Suzuki, which will launch a special limited edition WindSong Swift car model as a part of its association.
