Over the past few years, Bengaluru has exploded into a big busy city, carving a contemporary & cosmopolitan imagery of itself while somehow retaining its old charm. It’s this old charm, the nostalgia of it all, that we all romanticize & yearn for. The Beantown Backyard Festival was born out of this nostalgia. At the festival, we could see thousands of attendees really just celebrate those simpler days, of good times – when people bonded in wide open spaces, under the shade of trees, over music, conversations, food, and brews. We created this unique property and served experiences that the city loved, in its own backyard. We look forward to seeing many more faces in its next edition.”
