While Lahore Music Meet (LMM) is Pakistan's biggest music festival, there's so much more to it than just music.

The two-day event will kick off this weekend on February 1 at Alhamra Art Council and feature performances, masterclasses, documentary screenings and much more.

Here's what's going down on all four stages:

Personally, we're really looking forward to seeing Pepsi Battle of the Bands Auj and Aarish, Fake Shamans, Shamoon Ismail, Mekaal Hassan Band, Adil Omar, Talal Qureshi and Naseebo Lal to name a few. The sessions, 'Deconstructing Faris Shafi with Ahmer Naqvi', 'Storytelling with Hadiqa Kiani' and ProperGaanda's digital marketing for musicians also sound interesting.

The fest is open to public free of cost as long as you have a valid ID on you.

Since 2015, Lahore Music Meet has been a platform featuring upcoming artists from Pakistan’s emerging, contemporary and traditional music landscape, and bridging the gap between music enterprise, education and academia.
