ITANAGAR, Sep 14: Ziro Festival has released its own app for mobile phone users. The app is available on both Android and iOS stores and is specifically focussed on attendees coming to visit Ziro valley in Arunachal Pradesh in September 2022.
Ziro Festival app lists out all the artists performing at the festival, including detailed information about them, their performance times and gives users the option of creating their own schedules on their app. 
The app also offers guidance to attendees on all the different homestays, campsites and hotels in the vicinity as well as the activities on offer and basic facilities like locations of ATM and other useful services.
"We have been thinking of developing a festival app for a while now and I am really happy to say that this is the first festival from the northeast that has its own app. We hope to continue to work on this app to become a one-stop for all visitors to Arunachal Pradesh so that they can get easy information to all their travel related queries," says Bobby Hano, Festival Director. Developed inhouse with their tech partner Systica Systems, the app took two months to be ready for launch. The mobile app is a fully accessible one (screen reader friendly) and was worked upon by Kerala-based visually impaired developer and tester Ramees. 

The app also includes playlists of all the artists performing at the festival as well as a store to buy tickets and festival merchandise. "Ziro Festival has always been artist-centric and the app is a perfect download for anyone who wants to enjoy the vibrant independent music scene of the northeast," says Anup Kutty, Creative Producer. 
Ziro Festival returns to Ziro valley after a two year hiatus following the pandemic. This is the ninth edition of India's most eco-friendly festival and features artists from the northeast as well as countries like Lithuania, UK, France, Israel and Japan.
