India’s contemporary, future-facing and forward-thinking homegrown festival Magnetic Fields was postponed last year due to the pandemic, but they just announced a new socially-distanced and intimate affair called the Magnetic Fields Nomads.
Their website describes the experience as: "A magical getaway where you will be constantly surprised and delighted; where you can wander and wake up to the sounds of nature in one of the world’s most unique and surreal venues."
Magnetic Fields Nomads will be held from March 19 - 21 in Nahargarh Ranthambhore, a palace-sized property owned by Alsisar Hotels and located near Ranthambore National Park. The fortress is stretched across an area of 20 acres of land and amidst thousands of trees.
In the three-day, open-air gathering of creatives and community, attendance will be limited at 400 people, all of whom are required to show negative COVID-19 test results within 24 hours of arriving and also other adhering to health and safety protocols, including face covering when in close proximity with others and staying on-site for example, as outlined by the Rajasthan state.
Despite things being a little bit different, Magnetic Fields Nomads is set to continue to travel and embrace the magic of impermanence and discovery. During the festival, you can look forward to a Chef Table, food handpicked by chefs from across India at an intimate, seated dining experience, as well as a Magnetic Sanctuary, a tranquil retreat for you to revive your body and mind through a variety of wellness workshops, a Jungle Safari and a Sundowner in the Bagichi, where you can dance around the warm rays of the afternoon sun as they peek through the canopy. Of course, there will be more.
"Our focus this year is on championing and supporting local excellence in food, culture and music as we cautiously celebrate the encouraging signs of revival in India," the team said.
Although the line-up details have yet to be announced, tickets to the Magnetic Fields Nomads Festival can be booked at their website.
