1. Jodhpur RIFF at Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur
When: October 10-14, 2019
What: The Rajasthan International Folk Festival (RIFF) is one of Rajasthan's most popular folk festivals that began in 2007 under the international patronage of the Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and the invaluable aegis of H.H. Maharaja Gaj Singh II . Needless to say, Jodhpur RIFF is carefully curated to give you a unique experience of Rajasthani culture that does not find space in mainstream media. The magical touch of the festival is its timing, which coincides with the brightest full-moon in north India.
