Jaisalmer to witness the biggest Art and Music Festival

 

Come November 16, 17, and 18, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, will be playing host to the first edition of Ragasthan. The three–day festival will feature several music stages, a film–screening tent, art and photography podiums, and outdoor activities like sand–surfing and dune–boarding.

The festival will attempt to promote local and international tourism to Jaisalmer, and also encourage the music, art and photography that will be showcased over the course of the three days. Bands encompassing several genres of music will perform at one of the three stages–Morio Main Stage, Ammara Electronic Stage, and Olun World Stage.

 

People attending will also be able to attempt kite–flying, zorbing, paintball, hot–air ballooning and RC car rides. The Ujalo film tent will screen films and have the directors present for discussions. While at the festival, people can camp outdoors. There´s even a small kids´ tent with toys and other activities to occupy children while their parents are attending an event.

The festival will also feature a lot of local, Indian artists, and some ancient, forgotten Rajasthani art–forms. For example we will have local Rajasthani artists perform the bingle which is an hour long performance of breathless poetry. Earlier, before kings would go out for war, they would have one guy come and recite poetry of their ancestry and their forefathers, so that would inspire them and then they would go out to war.

Tourists in Rajasthan, art and music Lovers can enjoy the true camp-out experience by either bringing their own tent or can opt for one of the luxury “Royal Swiss” tents (that come with a shower and bedding to boot) provided by the organizers. Ticket prices vary for a general admission pass for three days and different for a three-day pass if you bring your own tent.
