Ragasthan, unique yet somewhat mercurial is Asia’s first desert camping festival rooted in the expansive dunes of the Thar desert in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. In its third edition from February 23 to 25th, 2018, Ragasthan shifts gears and dares you to be you, to do what you love and love what you do.
Eclectic music, culture, tradition, collective participation and shared experiences make for the focal point of the festival bringing together life enthusiasts from the remotest corners of India to those spread across the world. A 360-degree scenic view of the horizon, spread out over the towering dunes of inner Thar, Ragasthan stretches a little over a square Kilometre and if rolling down 150 feet high dunes isn’t enough, there is more to enthral even the most subdued.
Over 50 artists, one artists’ village, a sociable camping space, a dozen film screenings under the open sky, bars and restaurants, art installations, morning yoga sessions and football on the softest playground have weaved their way into the itinerary paving way for uninhibited bliss.
Ditch the known for the unknown.
