This year's festival has been dedicated to Chhayanaut SangeetBidyayatan teachers, Madan Gopal Das and Satindranath Halder.

On Friday, the first session of the concluding day's program will begin at 9 am and continue till 12 pm which will feature the performances of Alauddin Miah, Bijan Chandra Mistry and more.
