What does 5X stand for?

The name 5X is a nod to our roots in Bhangra. The “5” in 5X refers to Punj and Punjab. The “X” in 5X is just a cool letter! But it can also stand for ‘experience’, a multiplier effect, or even the intersection of east and west; old and new - and our hybrid identities!

Sure is! Everyone is welcome to attend. All attendees aged 11 and under are eligible for a free ticket on our ticketing page. They must be accompanied by an adult and must show proof of age on entry.
