Following the incredible success of the first day of .FEST, Day 2 saw over twelve thousand citizens and visitors enjoyed a night of soulful sufi melodies at the IDCO exhibition ground on Monday. By taking in the captivating modern, traditional, and Sufi night performances by Harshdeep Kaur, Navraj
Hans, Priya Malik, and Dipti Rekha Padhi, the people of Bhubaneswar undoubtedly got
over their Monday blues.
All segments of the citizens equally enjoyed the mouth-watering regional specialities
from different Indian states, relishing delicacies from Odisha, and international cuisines
from the 16 Hockey World Cup participant nations and 24 states of India. The Night
Bazaar/Flea Market enlivened Bhubaneswar’s winter nights and offered a fantastic
stage for local artists, start-ups, performers, craftsmen, and innovators to present their
goods. The Flea Market, which was organised with the intention of promoting the
handicrafts and textiles of Odisha, proved to be a remarkable crowd-puller with more
than 120 locally produced goods on exhibit, making it a shopping extravaganza for the
visitors.
BhuFeSto, a storytelling festival, saw people from all walks of life. Especially children
listened to international and national professionals at the Kala Bhoomi, IG Park, Buddha
Jayanti Park, and APJ Abdul Kalam Park. The distinguishing feature of the .FEST has
been Sebbe-Au-Ebbe (Then & Now), a photo exhibition that showcased the glorious
urban/ city history of Bhubaneswar, one of the 1st Planned cities of Independent India,
along with the first of its kind uniquely curated experiential trails around the city of
Bhubaneswar.
To the joy of the audience, Day 3 of the .FEST will include amazing performances once
more in a revitalised and charming avatar. Divya Kumar, a Bollywood actor, and
director, will dazzle the audience with her appearance, while popular singers Neeti
Mohan and Pragyan Hota, an Odia singer, will give entrancing contemporary
