Celebrating the spirit of ‘Living it Large,’ Seagram’s Royal Stag presents the second edition of Royal Stag BoomBox, a unique musical festival that merges the beloved melodies of Bollywood with the pulsating beats of hip-hop. In an exclusive preview in Mumbai on February 7, 2024, the brand unveiled what’s in store for music enthusiasts at this year’s event.
Royal Stag BoomBox audaciously brings together two distinct genres of the music industry, Bollywood melodies, and the gully vibe of hip-hop, to create the original sound of today’s generation, the Generation Large. This cultural movement aims to appeal to a tribe that makes trends rather than follows them, constantly seeking soul-touching experiences.
- On-ground format: The festival will travel to four of India’s biggest youth hubs – Bhubaneswar, Indore, Jaipur, and Pune, offering marquee musical performances along with interactive Phygital activations like insta-live sessions, art showcases, AR/VR installations, AI-based engagement, selfie-booths, and more.
- In-studio format: Featuring three original Melody x Hip-Hop music tracks that will be released as singles and videos across platforms, this unique musical concept aims to captivate audiences both offline and online.
