Kurseong, a hill station and sub-divisional town in the Darjeeling, will host The Pine Tree Festival on 16th October. Now, while many music festivals are organized every year across India, this one is special because it not only promotes budding artists from the country but also gives a platform for locals to promote their commodities, cuisines and the like in addition to spreading awareness about conservation.
