Mumbai’s uber-cool flea market, The Lil Flea (TLF), is turning 3 and is putting up quite a celebration for 2 consecutive weekends at the beautiful JIO GARDEN, BKC. With over 250 pop-up shops, 60+ food and desserts at the Lil Cafe, and a festival-like lineup of indie music bands, Mumbai folks are in for a treat!
The Lil Flea, which is a potpourri of 3 festivals rolled in one, makes it a perfect weekend getaway within the city for all those who love to explore new trends and artists.
TLF first edition of flea markets was held in April 2014 and within the course of 3 years, it has gathered quite a fan following with 8 very successful markets. The last editions had seen over 35,000 people, flocking at the event shop, try out latest fusion food, and groove to some of the best live independent music available in the country. The Lil Flea is now in its 9th edition, expecting over 40,000 attendees.
Watch out for!
Curated by BarCzar and The Lil Flea, Stage Left is India’s first unique cocktail, beer and wine experience that dusts away the old boring dispense bar station at your favorite music fest. With a dedicated 5000 square feet, semi-enclosed space this tempting bar setup will focus on 3 categories – Micro Breweries, Wine and Cocktails, hailing from the best bars in the city like White Owl, Barking deer, Sula, and Woodside-in to name a few. And the fun doesn’t end there; bars will be sharing recipes, run masterclasses, and have fun games and activities on-board.
Midnight movies: Midnight movie sessions at The Lil Flea will start right after the music stops at 10 pm, and it will go on till midnight, every night over the 2 weekends of The Lil Flea.
Virtual Reality Films: A host of Virtual Reality Films, created by Anand Gandhi’s Memesys Labs will let you experience cinema in a whole different way with a 360-degree view of every single shot.
