A three-day music festival will begin at Rudrapatna in Arkalgud taluk on Friday.
Rudrapatna Sangeetotsava Samiti Trust, headed by veteran musician R.K. Padmanabha, has been organising the festival for the last 12 years.
The festival will begin with a vocal recital by Phaneesh Kumar and Pavan Kumar on Friday evening. This will be followed by a vocal concert by H.S. Bhavya and Varsha Krishna. Nearly 80 musicians will take part in the festival.
Mr. Padmanabha, who briefed journalists about the programme recently, said the State government was yet to respond to his repeated demands on improving basic infrastructure in the village.
