The organizers of Ziro Festival of Music recently launched a mobile application for the participants of the music festival held at Ziro valley in Arunachal Pradesh.
The app is available on both Android and iOS stores and is specifically focussed on attendees coming to visit Ziro valley in Arunachal Pradesh to witness the musical extravaganza this month.
The Ziro Music Festival app lists out all the artists performing at the festival, including detailed information about them, their performance times, and gives users the option of creating their own schedules on their app.
The app also offers guidance to attendees on all the homestays, campsites and hotels in the vicinity as well as the activities on offer and basic facilities like locations of ATM and other useful services.
“We have been thinking of developing a festival app for a while now and I am really happy to say that this is the first festival from the Northeast that has its own app. We hope to continue to work on this app to become a one-stop for all visitors to Arunachal Pradesh so that they can get easy information to all their travel related queries,” said festival director Bobby Hano.

Developed in-house with their tech partner Systica Systems, the app is screen reader friendly and was worked upon by Kerala-based visually impaired developer and tester Ramees.
The app also includes playlists of all the performers at the festival as well as a store to buy tickets and festival merchandise.
“Ziro Festival has always been artist-centric and the app is a perfect download for anyone who wants to enjoy the vibrant independent music scene of the Northeast,” said creative producer Anup Kutty.
The Ziro Festival of Music (September 29 – October 2, 2022) returns to the Ziro valley after a two-year hiatus following the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the ninth edition of India’s most eco-friendly festival and features artists from the Northeast as well as countries like Lithuania, UK, France, Israel and Japan, the festival director said.
