Most classic rock 'n roll lovers have grown up wondering what it must have been like to headbang at the now legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969. We've all seen videos of true music lovers going completely crazy over the course of four days during that summer, but what if I told you that you can actually come close to experiencing all that madness right here under the stars of the sublime Aamby Valley City, Lonavla!

There is no dearth of traditional music festivals in the country any m0re, but once in a blue moon there comes one that completely ups the game, like the Enchanted Valley Carnival (EVC), which is the answer to every music lover's prayers. 

Claimed to be "Asia's first music festival with its own fully-functional campsite", the EVC is being organised since 2013. The organisers are going several notches higher in the upcoming 4th edition, in which the biggest artistes from various genres, such as EDM, International Pop, Techno, Bollywood, Indie, etc., are all coming together to perform their hearts out. Since it's being organised on a secluded airstrip in Aamby Valley City, most of the audience will actually be camping here f0r two nights; hence it'll all be like one big family appreciating pure art, just how it was at Woodstock.

If I have your attention now, let me tell you more. And, most importantly..

It's merely a week away!

The campsite in Aamby Valley is reason alone for one to be there. There'll be a million stars, after-parties, campfires and of course good music. The most convenient way to reach the site is driving or hiring a personal cab only. The city is 90 kms away from Pune, and 120 kms from Mumbai.

Accommodation depends on you. You can stay in the tents provided on site or even bring your own and pay per person. There are also luxury tents that you can share with your friends. In case you can't manage in the tents, there are also options to stay in luxury flats and villas.
