Always wished to be a part of Kolkata's iconic Durga Poojo festivities? Well, 93.5 Red FM is now turning your dream into a reality with their Dugga Dugga Festival. This is going to be an online experiential festival that will be bringing Kolkata's iconic Durga Puja celebrations to the other parts of the country so you can finally bid goodbye to your FOMO.

Bolo Durga Mai ki Joy

This much-awaited event will be streamed live online on BookmyShow for all the viewers on the 18th of October, 2020. The event registration can be done on BookMyShow and interested viewers can log-in, register and get their free e-pass to the festival. With just a few weeks to go for this epic festivity, preparations have begun across the country and especially in Calcutta, albeit at a smaller scale and differently this time, keeping the pandemic in mind.

Dugga Dugga Festival is an attempt at celebrating and experiencing Durga Puja together, no matter where you are! This fest will have good music by artistes like Iman Chakraborty, Rupankar Bagchi, Lopamudra Mitra and Srikanta Acharya and it'll have all the other cultural elements to keep it as authentic as possible. The event will have Sujoy Prasad Chatterjee as the festival guide to lead you through this 3-hour long journey.

Speaking on this announcement, Nisha Narayanan, Director and COO, RED FM and Magic FM, was quoted saying, "More than a cultural festival, Durga Puja is a nostalgia that weaves different emotions and memories. Since venturing out and celebrating at the limited pandals will be a risky affair and the number of pandals are limited this year, we thought of bringing the festive cheer right at your doorstep with Dugga Dugga Festival. The festival will be an amalgamation of music and experiences beautifully woven to present the true essence of pujo. Dugga Dugga Festival is another IP that will bring together communities for indigenous cultural celebration this year. We hope you celebrate it with your loved ones and look forward to better and safer times ahead."

With experiences like culinary masterclass from celebrity home-kitchens to conversations with various renowned personalities from Bengal, Dugga Dugga Festival plans to evoke nostalgia and unravel the essence of pujo for all bengalis and non-bengali communities.
