The festival has been renamed as the ‘Sawai Gandharva Bhimsen Mahotsav’ since the last year after the demise of Bharat Ratna Pt. Bhimsen Joshi.

The festival was initially known as the ‘Sawai Gandharva Sangeet Mahotsav’.

“This being the 60th year of this mega music fest, which enjoys patronage of music lovers from all around the world, the Arya Sangeet Prasarak Mandal has decided to hold it for 6 days in this particular year”, informed Shrinivas Joshi, Executive President, Arya Sangeet Prasarak Mandal.
