ragasthan- 2014JAIPUR- In its second edition, Ragasthan is expected to come back better – yet still unique, generous, audacious and in many ways liberating. With a slight chill to the winter and nip to the air, Ragasthan will now be held over 3 nights and 4 days close to Jaisalmer city but in the untapped secluded dunes of Khuri and that isn’t all that’s new with it.

Having retained the style, essence and fundamentals of the previous show, older, wiser and day longer, Ragasthan 2014 has an eclectic line up of new and emerging artists from across the country and abroad like Christophe Chassol (France), Alo Wala (USA) , Ash Roy, Mame Khan and Troupe, Ganesh Talkies and Tritha Electric amongst others who shall be showcasing their talent here across 3 varied stages.

The festival also boosts a range of extraordinary activities like Paintball, sky gazing workshops, karaoke, volleyball, drive-in camping, yoga sessions, dormitory lodging and ATV rides. Adding to the experience will be the full moon slated for the 15th of February when you will see the Thar Desert beauty in all its serenity illuminated by the ambient light of the sun.

Camping at the festival is a big novelty as it gives all adventure enthusiasts and outdoor thrill seekers a chance to bring out their own tents and come enjoy with others in the vastness of nature. Also, with the option of luxury camping in swiss tents (with en suite bathrooms) in the desert, at a relatively affordable price, Ragasthan has opened the door of a music festival experience to all those who would have otherwise had to travel outside the country to try. There’s room for everyone, especially the crazy ones who can hire a mattress and bunk under the night sky anywhere in the dunes within the festival premises.

Maintaining a no plastic festival, Ragasthan offers a local taste and feel to its visitors to the fullest. With camel rides all around the camp site to ferry people and a variety of adventure sports in the sands along with scrumptious food and drinks to beat the glaring heat of the desert, Ragasthan fest allows its visitors an over whelming feel and experience of the place away from the luxury and comfort of the daily metropolitan lives.  As a whole, Ragasthan serves to be a hotbed of musical and talent exchanges and an experience that is sure to stay in people’s minds for long…
