The people, the energy, and the music always lift our spirits, and this year it’s no different! We’re looking forward to another round of happiness! You’ll know you’re there when you see the Ferris wheel, and you can feel the beat of the music in the air. Grab a drink, pick your favorite food, experience the art installations, spot the Ferris wheel, and let the festival take over.
Come through! We missed you nuf!
This year, less is more. We have a limited number of tickets on sale, to ensure your safety and still give you the best experience ever. And remember, if you want to make it to the festival, being fully vaccinated means double the happiness. Let’s have a safe and happy festival!
Don’t forget your Weekender Warrior checklist:
- Only fully vaccinated ticket holders will be allowed into the venue. Keep that handy to swift through the queue.
- Weekender Warriors wear their masks
- Thermal scanning is mandatory
- Frequent sanitisation and social distancing is encouraged
And please keep in mind that some event details could potentially change, based on the final permissions signed off by the official authorities. If you’ve bought tickets and the show is canceled for any reason, we will make sure that your money is refunded.
Do I have to be fully vaccinated (2 doses) to attend the festival?
Yes, you need to be fully vaccinated to attend the festival. By purchasing the ticket you are declaring that you have taken both the vaccine shots at least 14 days prior to the festival date.
Is there a verification process at the venue?
Yes. We will be verifying the vaccination certificate with a government-approved system. For fans who have taken their vaccines in countries other than India, there will be a separate counter to verify the same.
Can I attend the BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender if I am not vaccinated but I have a negative RT-PCR report?
No, as per government regulations we are only allowing fully vaccinated fans(2 doses) to attend the event. You will need to have your second dose at least 14 days before the event.
What if I got vaccinated outside India? Can I still attend the festival?
Please write to us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you at the earliest.
What happens if I don’t get through the thermal scanning checkpoint?
If the thermal scanner shows your temperature is high, we would have no choice but to deny you entry.
Do you have medical assistance on the ground?
Yes, there will be on-ground medical professionals as well as an ambulance on standby.

Do I have to bring a printout of my festival ticket?
BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender always strives to be as green as we can be, so the folks at the box office are happy to see your ticket on your mobile phone. Be warned that there is a limited mobile network at the venue, so remember to save the ticket on your phone. You can also show the SMS sent by Insider.in at the time of ticket purchase.
What is the age limit to attend the event?
Children up to ten years of age can enter the festival for free. If anyone is under the age of 16, you need to be accompanied by an adult guardian at all times. We would also recommend those extremely young children get hearing protection so that they can groove to the music no matter where you take them.
Also please note that everyone attending the festival will need to be fully vaccinated (2 doses), including children.
My child is not vaccinated. Can they still attend the festival?
Sorry, for their safety as well as everyone else’s at the festival, anyone who hasn’t been fully vaccinated will not be allowed into the venue.
Can I cancel my ticket?
Sorry, no backsies here. We will not be able to cancel/refund tickets.
When will I receive my wristband?
With every ticket, all attendees will need to collect their wristbands for the festival. You can collect your wristband at the box office before you enter the festival.
What kind of ID do I need?
To enter BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender, you must present identification. So please carry a valid, government-issued ID, such as a passport, Aadhar card, PAN Card, or driver’s license. Letters from your grandma claiming how old you are won’t do, sorry 🙁
Oh, and btw, you will need to present your vaccination certificate (both doses) at entry. So keep that handy too!
What if I lose my band mid-event and need to get out for a bit, can I re-enter?
Wristbands that are lost or misplaced before or during the festival will not be replaced. You will not be allowed to re-enter the festival without your wristband so we would suggest you keep your wristband on for all festival days, come what may; sleep, showers, after-parties, and everything that comes in between – the wristband must be protected!
Is alcohol available at the event?
Yup, but you’ll only be served alcohol if you’re above the legal drinking age! (It’s probably one of the few perks of growing older). And if you do drink, be good ok? Handle thy liquor well, so that everyone can have a fantastic time!
Can I smoke? Can I get high?
BACARDÍ NH7 Weekender is a drug-free festival and anyone found at the festival with any illegal substances will be removed immediately.

Is parking available at the festival?
Yes. However, space is limited, so come in early to avoid the hassle. Bonus: we have amazing artists playing early sets, so why miss out?
