FACE MUSIC MELA
The FACE Music Mela started in 2014 and has since become one of the largest music festivals of Pakistan with a footfall of 20,000 attendees, hosting an average of 25-30 performance acts spread out over 3 days as well as workshops, presentations, panel discussions, and exchange programs. Besides curating the best music acts from all the diverse music genres and regions of Pakistan, every year Music Mela also features a number of international acts and collaborative fusion.
For the first three years Music Mela was supported by grant from PUAN (Pak US Alumni Network) and the US Embassy in Islamabad, and is now an independent self-sustaining project.
FACE Music Mela has played a significant role in providing a boost to the live performance music industry of Pakistan in promoting talented musicians from rural and urban areas and connecting them to a wider audience and a global industry.
