Since our 1st announcement of Magnetic Fields Festival, we've simply been inundated with emails and messages from people wanting to know more. Whether it be information on tickets, artists or even what else is on offer. And with 5 weeks left to go, we're happy to release tickets for the event alongside a new wave of artist announcements.

The full line up can be seen here.
Each morning will begin with energising yoga sessions on the lawn. Through the day, there will be snatches of local culture to sample, from traditional folk artists to local craftsmen along with free workshops giving a peek into the region’s history and legacy. The food at the festival will be a contemporary take on the best of local cuisine, deconstructing some of the region’s most popular foods, using adding the freshest local ingredients.
Magnetic Fields will also be the first music festival designed by label and design house; 11.11 by CellDSGN. Locally sourced materials and traditional Rajasthani design elements will be combined in unconventional ways to create a brand new experience; a magical, fantasy carnival with secret-spaces, costume balls, airships, cloud bars, floating stages and much more.
Tickets for the 3-day affair are available on bookmyshow.com and are priced at Rs. 4,000 for a 3-day pass. With a limited capacity of just 500 festival-goers, emphasis is being placed on creating an intimate, carefully curated festival experience, a complete escape into the extraordinary for three days.
Festival goers have the option of either living in luxury at the palace or camping out under the open sky, nomadic style in tents. The Alsisar Mahal, a heritage hotel, with its intricately carved four poster beds and delicate Rajasthani motifs on the antique furniture makes for a regal break and will cost from Rs 17,500 to Rs 14,500 per person depending on the size of the group. For the more adventurous, luxury tents are currently available at a discounted price for an enticing alternative at Rs 12,500 per person for a two-person tent or Rs 11,000 per person for a group of three - but only for a limited time.
More details about the tickets are available on bookmyshow.com. Grab em' while they're hot.
