Timed to coincide with "Sharad Purnima" the brightest full moon of the year in north India, Jodhpur RIFF features a series of spectacular concerts and events based in and around Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur. This colourful and vibrant event includes artists from around the world, but also focuses on providing a source of livelihood for the traditional artists of Rajasthan.
International and local musicians come together to play throughout the day, starting with dawn ragas at Jaswant Thada through to evening performances under the full moon. There are workshops and interactive sessions during the day with the musicians and incredible evening concerts encapsulating Rajasthani and international folk and roots music of the highest quality.
The festival is entirely outdoors with fantastic weather - wintry warmth in the afternoons and a pleasant chill in the evenings.
