Said to be one of the “50 best music festivals in the world” by Time Out magazine, experiential music festival Magnetic Fields has announced dates for its fourth edition. The three-day arts and music festival will take place from 9-11 December at Alsisar Mahal, Rajasthan, the 17th century palace-turned-hotel that provides the perfect backdrop for Magnetic Fields’ handpicked showcase of music and the arts.
The festival, that has grown by 200% since its debut in 2013, claims to be an immersive, curated experience — with secret, dawn-breaking parties — unlike any other on the Indian circuit. The festival will continue to be a limited capacity event.
Just like in its previous editions, the festival will host two main stages — the North stage (night stage), and the South stage (day stage). The Rajputana Palace will hear the strains of music round the day as acts are slated to perform during the afternoon on the lawns before curtains open on the North stage. The music on the North stage is programmed to go on till late into the night and for those unwilling to call it a night, Magnetic Fields also features dawn-breaking, pop-up parties throughout the weekend — a definite and popular highlight of the festival.
Music at the Desert Disco Oasis stage will greet campers every noon before the main stages kick off, providing a soundtrack to the Bedouin Village.
Red Bull Music Academy North Stage returns to Alsisar Mahal and will feature some of the world’s most exciting new talent and favourites from the world of electronic music.
