Music until dawn, kite-flying parties at sunrise and a disco in the desert made the second edition of Magnetic Fields unforgettable.
Featuring rising stars from India and international legends, that included bass music don Mala, the three-day festival was an aural treat for the discerning music fan. But, like last year, the fun wasn’t limited to just music. The festival was a sensorial delight: there were stargazing workshops, morning yoga sessions, art installations and wandering poets that wrote haikus on the spot, dawn- breaking parties with kite-flying sessions, a treasure hunt with an attractive booty, traditional Rajasthani delicacies for the gourmand and even some local minstrels around the palace who added the Rajasthani touch with old folk tunes.
A three day camping festival that captivated and spellbound everyone involved. Attracting an audience of adventurous, young and open minded urbanites.
A playground for the young at heart, within a luxurious and indulgent backdrop. Glimpses of the rich local culture delicately weaved in between the contemporary programming.
Step into our world; 3 days of music, art, food and magical connections in a 17th century palace in Shekhawati, Rajasthan.
