Commenting on the festival, Sunny D' Souza from Overdrive Trio said: "We had a fantastic time playing at the Indigo blues festival in Bangalore. Lovely people and such a great vibe...what an amazing experience. There was an elaborate food court which presented delicious Texan soul food like steaks and barbeque, coupled with scotch and beer. The festival in its third edition adopted a more mainstream approach and presented artists from India and United States, rather than presenting Scandanavian and French artists, which it had done in the previous editions. More than 2,000 people attended the festival over the two days."
Around 2,000 people attended the festival which was held on May 18 and 19 at Eden Garden in Bangalore.
