Public gatherings, though now open, is still a matter of fear for people. Therefore, a solution has to be such that while the vibe of an event is maintained, Covid specific guidelines should be followed, so that the ones who are keen to be in the safety net don’t suffer the chaos. This led us to visualize GIFLIF Drive-in Music Festival - INDIA’s FIRST EVER.
