As if the upcoming Fly Festival wasn't already chock-a-block with artistes, there's a whole new colour in its palette. Deep Purple, credited (along with fellow British bands Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath) with pioneering the heavy rock and metal genres, will mark its India debut on February 17 when it headlines the second day of the Fly Festival in Delhi. After a thorough grinding in the rumour mills of "will they" or "won't they", the progenitors of hard rock have finally confirmed their presence at the festival, where they will be sharing stage with Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of the psychedelic rock band The Doors, American nu-metal act Limp Bizkit and Scottish songstress KT Tunstall, among others.
