What was held in 1969 on a farmhouse in New York is now being brought back to life at Zenzi Mills tonight. The event is a tribute to the Woodstock festival. This event will be divided into two separate rooms. Room number one will have a theme party titled God Save The Queen. The interiors will be hippie themed with posters of the festival covering the walls. DJ Mikhail, resident DJ at Zenzi Mills will be spinning music from the Woodstock era.
Room two will have a live band put together specially for the Woodstock tribute, covering tracks that best capture the essence of the festival. “It is great that so many different musicians get to perform on one night,” says Vinay Lobo, lead singer of the band from room two. They will be covering tracks by The Who, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and many more. The performance will also have guest artists like Sid Coutto, Varoon Nair and Pradeep Mathews (The Mavyns) and DJ RayG.
To add to the visual experience, the backdrop will have a projector screen flashing images and clippings taken from the actual 1969 documentary of the festival. Also, entry will be granted only if you are dressed as a hippie. Says Jash Reen, head of visuals, “I might just borrow a dupatta from my mom.”
