Overview

Jodhpur RIFF (Rajasthan International Folk Festival) was 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.

About the venue

General info

Mehrangarh Fort stands a hundred feet in splendor on a perpendicular cliff, four hundred feet above the sky line of Jodhpur. Burnished red sand stone, imposing, invincible and yet with a strange haunting beauty that beckons . Much has been written about the Citadel of the Sun, for truly, it is one of the most impressive in all Rajasthan. So colossal are its proportions that Rudyard Kipling called it “ the work of giants”. Today, it is acknowledged as one of the best preserved fort in India.
