Competition: Win Tickets To Ragasthan Festival
7 November 2012
Later this month the dunes of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan will play host to the very first edition of Ragasthan. A three-day festival featuring music, film, art, photography and outdoor activities such as sand-surfing, zorbing and dune-boarding.
In an attempt to promote both local and international tourism to the region of Rajasthan, it aims to showcase various genres of music over its three stages. As well as the above mentioned activities, attendees will be able to enjoy paintballing, kite-surfing, hot-air ballooning and even RC car rides. There will also be a film tent screening films with directors present for discussion.
Scheduled to take place from 16-18 November, the festival has partnered with Exit, Serbia's world renown music festival which annually plays host to over 150,000. Through this collaboration the event promises to showcase some of the worlds best music, art and production.
That's not all. Mumbaikars and Delhiites will also have the opportunity to travel down to the festival in the "festival caravan" alongside acts such as Blakc, Spud In The Box, and Tribal Flora from Mumbai and Half Step Down, Chalo Africa and Rajasthan Roots from Delhi. The Delhi coach will also be stopping in Pushkar for a street party organised by the festival (more details here).
"The festival is unique in the sense that it takes place in Jaisalmer, right in the middle of nowhere. It is a camping festival so people will be staying in tents outdoors. It's not like the usual music festival with a huge LED screen and stuff. The festival will also feature a lot of local, Indian artists, and some ancient, forgotten Rajasthani art-forms" - Keith Menon, Ragasthan organiser.
