Freedom to the youth of today has different connotations and means different things to different people: freedom from corruption, freedom to choose a career, freedom to live the way one wants to, freedom to earn, freedom to enjoy music, films, dance and other arts without too much censorship, or something as simple as the freedom to go out and party without too many restrictions.

UNAIDS is partnering with Indigo Live to host a series of events centered around the communication of UNAIDS objectives in India, starting with Cry Freedom concert.

At the Cry Freedom concert, 19 artists/bands from different parts of the country came together to celebrate freedom with 12 hours of unrestricted live music.
The concert was webcast live on social media and select Digital OOH screens at key locations like Multiplexes, Malls, Gyms and Mumbai Domestic Airport (arrivals).

“Hence, keeping this in mind, we have built a property that everyone can relate to and celebrate the freedom from various struggles, with Live music. We are extremely thrilled and excited to bring to you the Cry Freedom concert and it’s our privilege to have UNAIDS support this initiative”
