A tentative list has been prepared that includes Armaan Malik performing on Sept. 22, Ankit Tiwari on Sept. 23, Coke Studio on Sept. 24, Arjun Janya on Sept 25, Niti Mohan on Sept.26 and Palak Muchhal on Sept. 27. Besides these, the names of Javed Ali and Sachin-Jigar also were proposed by Backward Classes Development Department’s Somashekar.
Sponsors important for People’s Festival: The Dasara celebrations is a people’s festival and if private players come up with sponsorships then the events can be taken to a different level, said DC D. Randeep.
Those who sponsor the programmes will be entitled for two free gold cards. This time the programmes should be of international standards. Last year 12 private companies had come forward to sponsor the programmes. As a result, the District Administration got Rs. 50 lakh worth sponsorship.
This year a four-day film festival has also been planned. Along with international films, Kannada and regional language films will be screened. There is a provision to sponsor this event also, he said.
