Devotees worldwide are invited to celebrate a 24-Hour Kirtan event in Birmingham, UK, to be held on May 4-5, 2024. The occasion promises to be an unforgettable spiritual experience as it marks the 25th year of the gathering and will be held in a new venue that can accommodate up to 2,000 guests.

“For a quarter of a century, we have come together every year to immerse ourselves in the chanting of Lord Krishna’s name, inspired by Aindra Das and Tribhuvannatha Das,” said Mayapur Madhava Das, one of the Directors of ISKCON Birmingham. The milestone event promises to be a memorable experience filled with soul-stirring kirtans by Indradyumna Swami, Dayananda Swami, S.B. Keshava Swami, Amala Harinama Das, Nadiya Devi Dasi, Smita Krsna Das, Sharad Bihari Das, Sri Pralada Das, Hari Kirtan Das, Ananda Murti Das, Yogindra Das, and a host of UK-based kirtaniyas.

“I’m filled with a profound sense of gratitude because, over the past 25 years, I have witnessed individuals from different backgrounds come together in the heart of the UK to chant the Holy Name of the Lord,” noted Mayapur Madhava Das, “Our Kirtan event serves as a reminder of the power of collective prayer, as propagated by Sri Chaitanya prabhu.
