WORME (pronounced as WORM), an acronym for World Of Rock Metal Electronica, is an engagement platform for independent musicians across India. WORME is a hub where artists in the Rock, Blues, Jazz, Fusion, Metal and Electronica genres can interact and share information about what’s going on around them, what are the latest happenings, events and trends that are defining their music scene and who are the ones driving it. The most exceptional thing about the WORME festival is that it cuts across genres and doesn’t represent just one. Artists from different genres of music are all part of it and this helps in providing variety for the discerning audience that have varied tastes.
One of the several unique initiatives taken by WonderMind to promote independent musicians in India is the creation and launch of a national level annual music festival, the WORME Festival, which attracts the best upcoming talent from across the country and provides them with exposure and opportunities nationally so as to help them pursue their dreams further.
“We intend to ensure that WORME Fest 2012 carves itself a place in the hearts and minds of music lovers as a unique event planned and executed at par with international music fests. From the production quality, to the on-stage experience, the methodology, to the team behind it, everything would reflect a professionalism not seen very often in India,” concluded. Khanna.
