The Rajasthan International Folk Festival (RIFF) started in 2007. Since then, every October, the impregnable fort of Mehrangarh reverberates with the confluence of the rustic tones of Rajasthan with music from around the globe. Around 250 musicians and artists come together from Rajasthan and elsewhere to become a part of the celebration. The festival has been endorsed by UNESCO as a “People’s Platform for Creativity and Sustainable Development” with the Maharaja of Jodhpur as its chief patron and Sir Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones as the international patron.
