14 years in the making. This will be the 14th anniversary of the Boston Bhangra Competition. SOLD OUT for the last 13 years…3,000 person attendance….the best BHANGRA teams from North America…advertising and promotion throughout New England. This is what you will get from the 14th annual Boston Bhangra Competition. It looks like Boston Bhangra has found a niche market where they have been able to get some of the best teams from North America, some great live performing artists and cheap tickets to keep this an event on the up and up. This year should be no different.
