We have created an amazing budget for you to get your butt there and have an experience unlike any other! Take a look at what you need to spend that dough on: 1.Tickets (Credits: eventbrite.com) The festival tickets are, literally, the cheapest ones you will come across at just INR 999 per day while the season pass for both days of the festival is retailing at INR 1,499. These passes haven’t been sold out yet, so you get to spend two incredible days for just a fraction of a cost. It’s the best ticket deal we’ve ever seen. 2. Getting there (Credits: hermitagepark.com) Travelling to the city of Zirakpur is a decent two hour ride from Ludhiana, Patiala, Jalandhar, Ambala and Hoshiarpur so people will not have to spend more on airfare! Those who are interested in the festival and are travelling from Amritsar could also drive for four hours via road because there are no direct flights to the city. Those attending from Himachal Pradesh’s Shimla and Kasauli could take a bus ride for INR 600. If you’re planning on attending the festival with a few buds, Delhiites can also bunch in on a drive to the festival but will have to bear the four hour long journey. Flight options for Delhi – Chandigarh are plenty and Zirakpur is just a few minutes away from the airport. The cab ride to your location will cost around INR 100. Look at the flight options here: New Delhi: 3. Stay You could rent out the most convenient of Airbnb rentals with the average cost per night being around INR 1,500 and most of them are placed close to the venue for seamless travel. You could also try nearby hotels for more luxury but why spend more on those? You could also explore the city for a day or two if you wish to stay back, roughly translated to ‘I never wanna leave!’ 4. Food & Beverages (Credits: archanaskitchen.com) When you’re in Punjab, it’s all about the food! Delicious meats and the crisp cold air will make you want to try every item available at the festival. Better keep aside INR 2,500 per day to enjoy all the food and beverages you can get your hands on. Try to score their lassi because that flavour cannot be duplicated anywhere else. 5. The Grand Total (Credits: facebook/crossbladelive) After all those points being ticked off the festival checklist, the estimate for the round trip for the trip will be INR 1,499 (tickets) + INR 4,000 approx. (travel by flight or road) + INR 3,000 approx. (stay) + INR 5,000 (food and beverages) = INR 13,500 approx. for both the days per person! This is cheaper than a fricking cell phone!
