The two-day/two-city festival saw American rap sensation Anderson Paak and The Free Nationals, London alt-rock band Wolf Alice, and several more top international and Indian names. Backdoors Festival collaborated with Amnesty International India who has an ongoing gender based violence programme, which has undertaken several campaigns over the years towards bringing an end to violence against women in the country. In 2017, research conducted by Amnesty International revealed the alarming impact that abuse and harassment on social media are having on women. Women around the world have reported stress, anxiety, or panic attacks as a result of these harmful online experiences.
