Does anyone have an idea where I can check for a list of events that are happening later this year? I've tried eventsbangalore.net and all that but they don't have any events on their list after March.

I'm interested in finding out if there are any festivals -- could be religious or music or cultural, anything at all -- or events that are happening in May/June. The sort with touristic potential/appeal (e.g. for April, there's "Rock in India", so it can really be anything at all); I've tried for several days to look for events in May/June but to no avail!

Any ideas...?

I doubt if you can find any details so far ahead. There are no religious festivals in this period. And as for music or cultural programs, stuff for April/May would not even have been scheduled by this time. But cultural/musical activities keep happening round the year in the city, so just wait till those days actually arrive.

Unfortunately, my editor will probably not accept "it's not been scheduled yet" as an answer... Never mind! I shall keep looking! I just need one!

Question: can you tell me what Basaveshwara Jayanthi is about?

Basavanna was a social reformer and religious leader. That day is a public holiday here in Karnataka.

Rama navami music festival would be held during that time. But the organisers website appears to be down and I don't know how one can contact them. Here is an article from last year's concert.

I will make a post here if i do get the schedule.
