In March 2021, IndiEarth XChange in association with 8 international music festivals launched a global initiative for artists, culture and music. CULTURAS 360° was born to stand in solidarity to support artists, conserve cultural heritage, and new music perspectives, and provide opportunities to perform and collaborate internationally. By its second edition in November 2021, the Collective grew to 14 member-festivals from around the globe, coming together to grow this vision.
The Collective’s shared commitment is to stay resilient while working for solidarity between peoples, cultures and music. Addressing the ongoing hardships faced by many live music festivals across the world, CULTURAS 360° will continue to support and stand for artists, audiences and industry professionals.
With its third virtual edition in March 2022, CULTURAS 360° has become a landmark hybrid initiative - virtual festivals, and when possible, live performance opportunities for artists under the CULTURAS 360° banner at the Festival Collective’s stages, and other festivals across the world. A "global-local online-offline" model also helps associates, sponsors and supporters get greater brand visibility and opens new business possibilities, which in turn enables artists’ growth, professional employment, and empowers music festivals to continue their work for culture, music and artists.
For CULTURAS 360°, IndiEarth XChange presented artists from diverse genres and cultures: Pratik Shrivastava (India), Maya Kamaty (Reunion Island), Khoomei Beat (Republic of Tuva), Siti and The Band (Zanzibar), Namgar (Republic of Buryatia), Naked (Serbia), Imran Khan (India), Jerry N The Resistance (Mauritius), ReMidas (South Korea), and Rehmat-e-Nusrat (India).
