About the Organizer:
The man behind putting this special event together is Elijah Dhawan, of London Tone Music’s low-fi folk band, Tobias The Owl. He says his motivation and inspiration behind putting the festival on is quite simple.
“We want to provide a bigger, more public event to recognize artists and names from our region that have a more intimate sound,” he said, adding, “these are also musicians that the organizers love and are inspired by. This is going be a wonderful event.”
