The 6th edition of the Bengal Classical Music Festival begins today, to stir up the hearts of classical music lovers of the country once more. Held at the Abahani grounds for the first time, the five-night festival is sure to draw attendees in tens of thousands. To ensure smooth management and a safe, pleasant experience for festival-goers, Bengal Foundation has set guidelines for the audience to follow. If you are going to the festival, here are some things to note: 

The festival will begin every day at 7pm and continue till 5am. Entry to the festival is free of cost but not possible without registration. Online registration and on-site registration at select Bengal Foundation points have already been closed. There will be no registration facilities at the venue. This year, the organisers have also not arranged for buses to drop off festival-goers every dawn.
