about strawberry fields
Strawberry Fields is National Law School of India University, Bangalore’s annual music festival that provides an incredible platform for semi-professional and college bands to compete and showcase their talent to a live audience of over 3000 people. It has, over the course of 23 years, set its legacy in stone amongst music enthusiasts and we keep coming back year after year to top each edition off.
Our history of hosting Strawberry Fields since 1996 has cemented our status as an institution that launches new talent every year and therefore accounts for great anticipation for each edition of the Show, not only amongst Bangalore's music audience but also amongst musicians and performers at a nationwide level. It has been rated as "India's Best College Rock Festival" by the Rock Street Journal. This is why some of the biggest artists in the country, like Parikrama and Swarathma hold this festival in such high regard.
Over the last two decades, Strawberry Fields has witnessed the best that the Indian independent music scene has to offer. It has seen everyone, from Thermal and a Quarter, Pentagram to Motherjane, testing their mettle against the best of Indian bands. It has seen the field at the NLSIU campus transcend into the Fields of Sound - a hallowed venue indeed for all upcoming and established Indian bands trying to make it to the big league. Whether you’re on stage or in the crowd at Strawberry Fields – we promise you an absolutely unforgettable experience. Always ensuring free entry, we facilitate an appreciation of music to the greatest possible extent. Nothing will come between you and your love for music at SF.
Big bands who we looked up to as role models started their careers after Strawberry Fields. Our career has been nothing but better after we won the 2015 edition, and we have everyone at NLS to thank for that.
One of the most highly sought after venues we have ever considered competing at, and we have no regrets. Whether it was competing or headlining, we always had a blast.
