Seagram’s Royal Stag presents the electrifying second edition of Royal Stag BoomBox: A Fusion of Bollywood melodies and Hip-Hop beats

MUMBAI: Seagram’s Royal Stag is back with the second edition of Royal Stag BoomBox, a unique musical festival blending Bollywood melodies with hip-hop beats. The festival aims to celebrate the spirit of 'Living it Large' by bringing together two distinct genres to create the original sound of today’s generation, the Generation Large.

This cultural movement will unfold in two engaging formats:

1. On-ground format: The festival will travel to four major youth hubs - Bhubaneswar, Indore, Jaipur, and Pune. It will offer marquee musical performances along with interactive Phygital activations such as insta-live sessions, art showcases, AR/VR installations, AI-based engagement, and selfie booths. Last year's edition witnessed over 50,000 attendees across multiple cities, generating over 180 million digital views and 13 million social interactions.

2. In-studio format: This unique musical concept will feature three original Melody x Hip Hop music tracks released as singles and videos across platforms. The songs from the previous season garnered close to 70 million views across multiple OTT and audio platforms.
