Exclusive: First Wave Of Artists For Magnetic Fields 2014 Announced
10 October 2014
Good news, fellow Bedouins - Magnetic Fields is back.
Wild City, along with our friends at WeThePPL, Undercover Agents, THOT and Alsisar Mahal have got an initial line up for the second edition of the Magnetic Fields Festival, slated to take between 12 and 14 December at the fairy tale property of Alsisar Mahal in Rajasthan.
This year, the nomads plan to travel a bit further from the desert into the final frontier on an intergalactic journey through the cosmic depths of the universe, free from space and time. The theme, extends to our website which is up and running at magneticfields.in. Check it out – we promise you’re in for a treat.
We’ve got an array of exciting new international and Indian acts performing after a fantastic first year. Dreamy electronic Parisian prodigy Dream Koala leads with British garage house DJ Flava D and Spanish electronic soundscape musician BeGun. Sri Lankan born Londoner My Panda Shall Fly will be bringing along his bass heavy goodness along with German techno proponent Pawas and London based funk legend DJ Vadim. Zahed Sultan and singer-songwriter Graciela Maria will also be present, as will founder of the hugely popular Reggae Rajahs – DJ Mocity.
As for the homegrown acts – you can expect nothing but the best. We’ve got exclusive festival sets by Dualist Inquiry, Monica Dogra a.k.a Shaa’ir performing as a solo artist and a massive full festival showcase by the Mumbai based Bhavishyavani Future Soundz collective featuring M Mat, Loopkin and Spacejams. Lyrical songster Nischay Parekh will perform along with drummer Jivraj Singh, who will also be playing with experimental Kolkata based electronic outfit Pinknoise.
The symphonious ballads of Nicholson and Delhi’s new dreamy psychadelia imprint Begum will be joined by electronic producers and members of the VITAL family, Soulspace and the Curtain Blue. Delhi Sultanate’s solo outfit BassFoundationRoots, Delhi’s quintessential noise rock band Hoirong, Bangalore based moody electronic duo Sulk Station and the euphonious post rock band Until We Last will also be performing.
Like last year, the performances will take place on two main stages – The North stage (night stage), and the South stage (day stage). This round will also feature dawn breaking pop up parties for those unwilling to call it a night.
Keep in mind – this is just the first wave. We’re going to be announcing more artists and details over the next couple of weeks so keep an eye out on Wild City’s Facebook and twitter feeds. Follow Magnetic Fields on Facebook for updates about accommodation and ticketing, for the festival which will be on www.magneticfields.in shortly.
This is more than a festival – it’s a journey.
