Anti Drug Rock Fest

“Drugs gave me wings to fly, but it took away my blue sky.”
Today, there is no part of the world that is free from the curse of drug trafficking and drug addiction. Millions of drug addicts, all over the world, are leading miserable lives, between life and death. India too is caught in this vicious circle of drug abuse, and the numbers of drug addicts are increasing day by day.

One of the great myths in rock n roll is that the most important / talented / exciting musicians must have taken drugs. The epidemic of substance abuse in young generation has assumed alarming dimensions in India. Changing cultural values, increasing economic stress and dwindling supportive bonds are leading to initiation into substance use. Drug use, misuse or abuse is also primarily due to the nature of the drug abused, the personality of the individual and the addict’s immediate environment.

Anti Drug Rock Fest (ADRF) exclusively structured by Eventoss Entertainment Pvt. Ltd in Patna as a CSR activity has been iconic, in trying to weave together the massive spool of bands, faces and tunes that comprise the thriving rock culture. From year to year and from strength to strength, ADRF always attempts towards freedom – freedom from the drugs that is one of the biggest impediments to the art form. Currently aiming to be the largest platform for the pioneers of original counter-culture music in India, it has been screaming away from the margins, and being heard to some extent.

Since 2012, ADRF is aiming to be one of the biggest anti- drug rock festivals to be held in different cities in India featuring original music, great bands and the entire spirit of rock n roll coming together in one comprehensive entity that we all know and love.

The fact is that original rock in India is still wandering around with its umbilical cord, trying to find some place to plug it in. Where Indian rock is headed, if it’s even going anywhere, remains a sticky point of contention.
