The mayhem of music and motorcycles continues this year with the return of Harley Rock Riders - Season V. After 4 successful seasons, the iconic rock music festival is set to return with a power-packed line-up of some of the biggest names in Indian rock music, and headlined by the American Grammy-nominated rock band - MUTEMATH. So mark your calendars for the 15th-16th November, 2014 and get ready to witness this exciting rock music festival. Here is your quick guide to the 5 reasons why you shouldn’t miss Harley Rock Riders this year.

 

1. Witness the Grammy nominee - MUTEMATH set the stage on fire!

Get set to rock as the Grammy nominated American alternative rock band takes the stage as the headlining act of the show. While they have performed in India before, this will be the first time they hit the Indian stage in a rock music festival. The band has toured extensively and built a strong fan base in India for their music, which fuses elements of alternative, psychedelic and post-rock. Mutemath is known all over the world for their unique style of performance. Their concerts often see Paul Meany (lead singer and keyboardist) indulge in crowd-surfing and piano-headstands among many other stunts.

 

2. Rajputana Customs showcases the first ever Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 built by an independent custom bike builder in India

Motorcycle enthusiasts are in for a treat at Harley Rock Riders-Season V on November 15-16, 2014 with Rajputana Customs showcasing the first ever Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 built by an independent custom bike builder in India. Launched earlier this year at Auto Expo 2014, the Street™ 750 is an ideal motorcycle that provides a blank canvas to owners to customize it as per their own idea of personal freedom. The final bike will be displayed at the festival and motorcycle enthusiasts can expect to see an organic, old-school inspired custom version of the popular Street™ 750. Incidentally, this isn’t Rajputana Customs’ first tryst with customizing Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Vijay has previously customized a Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight and Harley-Davidson Iron 883.

 

3. Witness the coming together of hundreds of roaring Harley-Davidson Motorcycles!

If the music isn’t enough to mesmerize you, the roar of the Harley-Davidson motorcycles should do the trick. Hundreds of Harley-Davidson motorcycle owners from the Seven Island Chapter, Mumbai will be riding in to the event. One can also get to experience what is like to ride a Harley-Davidson through the Harley-Davidson jumpstart.

 

4. Watch rock come alive on 3 stages!

The culture of Harley-Davidson has been synonymous with rock music since its inception. And this year Harley-Davidson is taking it up a notch with 3 live stages. Brilliant bands taking up the stage include Zero, Scribe, Blackstratblues, Modern Mafia, One Night Stand, The Circus, Such Nice Boys (feat. Kanan Gill & Kenneth Sebastian), The Supersonics, Devoid, Blakc, Ravi Iyer, Pangea, Tough on Tobacco, Undying Inc, Reverrse Polarity, and Until We Last.

 

5. Richardson & Cruddas Foundry - this is where Legends are made

When everything about Harley Rock Riders - Season V is iconic, why should the venue be less unique! Richardson & Cruddas Foundry was the first foundry to be set up in India and completed 156 years this very year!
