MUMBAI: The fifth season of MTV Unplugged is all set to go on air from 2 January, 2016.

The show will be aired every Saturday at 8 pm.

The show showcases India's biggest musical maestros performing their chart topping numbers that have swayed the nation in their most natural forms with acoustic arrangement of music and a live studio performance sans any post production.

The audience this season will see musicians such as Pritam, Hariharan, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Sukhwinder, Jeet Gannguli and Swarathma performing unplugged music for legions of fans. These are the musical geniuses, who have proven their mettle in the Indian music industry with songs that refuse to fade into oblivion.

Viacom18 EVP and business head - Youth and English Entertainment Ferzad Palia said, “MTV is the cultural home of the youth of today. And music is what drives them. Royal Stag Barrel Select MTV Unplugged is a show that brings together the biggest music stars of today, musicians and artists whose songs have shaped the youth of today with lyrics and music that appeal to them and define them. This year, the musicians we have on board are people who have in some way rebooted the Indian music industry by infusing certain freshness into the way things are done. And the unplugged versions of their songs are something you'll want to witness and listen to again and again.”

On the advent of the new season, Pernod Ricard India assistant vice president Raja Banerji added, “Royal Stag Barrel Select MTV Unplugged has already touched millions of hearts across the nation. Keeping up with the brand philosophy of “Make it Perfect,” Royal Stag Barrel Select, has made an endeavour to encapsulate the brand experience and has stepped up a notch higher, with every season, to ‘make it perfect’ through a series of Unplugged concerts. There is no better place to enjoy powerful, uninhibited music than here.”

Season 4 was graced by some of the biggest names from the world of music such as AR Rahman, Kailash Kher, Mohit Chauhan and Sonu Nigam whose beautiful compositions and unplugged renditions of popular songs have captured the hearts of audiences all over.
