Make sure you plan all the details of your trip to the weekender in advance. Take care of the travel and accommodation arrangements early so as to get cheaper rates. Last minute bookings can be expensive.

2.Share the experience-

Whether it is a cab from Mumbai to Pune or a room in Bangalore hotel, share it with your friends who are also going for the festival. If you are travelling alone, find other nh7-goers or fellow travellers to split the bill and instantly save some cash.

3.Bring your provisions-

Although the food on site would be wonderful and have a lot of variety, try packing some from home to reduce your expenses on outside food. If camping facilities are available, you can even cook your own meal.

4.Remember that you are there for the music-

Finding an amazing place to stay or delicious food at all times can be difficult and costly. So make an effort to adjust if you are looking to save up. It can turn out to be quite an experience and fun as well. And afterall, you are there for music, not for a luxurious holiday!

5.Wait until the last day to buy merchandize-

The merchandize at music festivals, clothes, trinkets etc can be ridiculously overpriced. Wait until the last day to do this shopping as the vendors are desperate then to get rid of the stock and the prices are significantly reduced.

With these five ways, you can certainly cut down your expenses at NH7. Do let us know how your experience at the weekender was 🙂
