Since people nowadays spend most of their time online, the organizers of the Hornbill festival decided to live stream the festival for all those who couldn’t attend in person. So this year, you can experience the magic of Hornbill festival through a live webcast, without having to leave your cosy couch.
The Department of Information and Public Relations will do the webcast. It will be available for streaming on www.iprnagaland.gov.in website. The festival is starting today at the Naga heritage village Kisama. The Hornbill Concert, which is a big part of the festival, will be held for three days from today at Dimapur, which is about 74km from Kohima.
The festival is an annual event to showcase the State’s tradition and rich cultural heritage in all its diversity and grandeur. Hosted by Nagaland Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs, it is a tribute to the hornbill bird, admired by the Nagas for its alertness and grandeur.
