Creatively termed – The Magnetic Fields Festival, the organizers urge us all to, “Step into our world; 3 days of music, art, food and magical connections in a 17th century palace in Shekawati, Rajasthan.” Along with this hard to refuse invitation – Magnetic Fields Festival – Teaser from Magnetic Fields Festival on Vimeo. As promised the festival will be set against the magnificent backdrop of a palace-turned hotel – The Alsisar Mahal in Rajasthan and will feature some great breakthrough music – in true Wild City fashion, while partnering with design & concept brand – 11.11 + WeThePpl, Alsisar Mahal and THOT. Apart from the music, there will be lots to look forward to. While attendees can choose between living in luxury tents or palace suites – they will also be privy to yoga sessions, art workshops, costume balls and good local food with ‘an alternative twist’.
