The festival includes a variety of events including 'hornbill naga wrestling,' 'Naga King Chilly and pineapple eating' competitions, handshake concerts, mountain biking, rock contests, Dzukou valley day hikes, and more.
According to tourism officials, the tourist boat jetties at Punnapra and Pallathuruthy are the most happening area with the houseboats and small-sized shikhara boats crisscrossing the lake and chugging along the sleepy canals without a break during the weekends and on holidays.
Several pop stars and DJs compete for honours at this edition of the festival. Ronan Keating from the Boyzone pop group, Grammy-winning R&B (rhythms and blues) artist Ne-Yo, DJ music producer Jonas Blue, Indian band Sanam, and DJ Pink Panda take part in the programme this time.
