DERBY Festé organisers say their acts will be making a song and dance of it this month when, as part of the weekend celebrations and performances, they will also play host to a free Bollywood party.
Derby Market Place will be transformed into a Mumbai street bazaar for the event, which will bring together the sights and sounds of Bollywood.
The party is to celebrate the centenary of Indian Cinema – and it will be the first time that Festé has staged its own tribute to Bollywood, now one of the largest film industries in the world.
The Bollywood party, produced by Derby Live in partnership with Derbyshire-based production companies, Charity Shop DJ and Surtal Arts, will blend together old and new elements from the genre and will feature a mix of live music, a fire show, DJs and dance performances - all against a backdrop of authentic stalls and Indian crafts.
Andy Jupp of Charity Shop DJ said: “We want people of all ages to come to the Market Place and party. There’ll be live music and DJs and you can even learn the moves. We want to bring back memories and introduce new people to the music and the films.”
