We all wish that our favorite artists toured close to home. After all, listening to your favorite songs live is an unparalleled experience, isn’t it? Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen too often. And when it does, one thing that can put a damper on the experience is having to tolerate a sub-par opening band. We decided to come up with a solution for the day our favorite artists visit the country. It may not be any time soon, but if they do tour here, we’ve got the opening acts covered. Here are 10 Indian artists who should open for international bands:
The F16s for Two Door Cinema Club
If there’s two songs that were meant to be performed in the same set, they’re What You Know and Nuke. Don’t you agree?
Skrat for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Striking the balance between melodic and badass isn’t easy… Unless you’re in one of these bands, of course!
The Ganesh Talkies for The Ting Tings
Eccentric and effortlessly cool, these two bands go together as well as bread and butter!
The Mavyns for The Black Keys
The best of blues rock from two continents! It doesn’t get much better than this!
Alien Chutney for The Lonely Island
The only thing we love more than music and comedy is this deadly combination of the two.
Dualist Inquiry for Chet Faker
Quirky electronic tunes backed by remarkable lyrics. Times two! What more could we ask for?
Soulmate for Sue Foley
The only way to improve some already amazing blues rock tunes are to watch these two badass women playing them!
Shaa’ir + Func for MGMT
Not a fan of conventional electronic music? That’s fine! Enjoy the best of mellow, alternative electronica with the best bands in the genre!
Prateek Kuhad for Bon Iver
Acoustic music from the soul, from around the world. Prateek Kuhad could perfectly set the tone for a stunning set by Bon Iver!
