India-based eco festival Echoes Of Earth makes its Goa debut next month, landing in the coastal region of Chopdem from February 2 – 4, 2024.

Celebrating local nature, culture, art and music, Echoes Of Earth is dubbed India’s ‘greenest festival’ with a pledge to promote sustainability.

The festival moves from its usual home in Bangalore to Chopdem, Goa, this year, kicking off with a cultural showcase featuring traditional Goan folk forms such as Ghode Modni — a unique blend of martial arts and horse dance — and Ghumot musical performances.
