When Chai Met Toast (WCMT) is a musical sensation from India who are about to embark on their first Australian tour, showcasing their unique blend of folk-pop, indie, and alternative rock. Pigeon-holed as ‘India’s Mumford and Sons’ due to the presence of banjo in their earlier material, When Chai Met Toast  is currently the most streamed English band in India and have cemented themselves as genre pioneers in the country.

Fresh from headlining major festivals in India and captivating global audiences, When Chai Met Toast has performed at prestigious events like the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix 2022 and Expo 2020 Dubai.

The band’s recent India tour marked a record-breaking success, selling over 12,000 tickets across 8 cities, a milestone for any Indian English artist.
