An amazing part of attending music festivals is that under a close proximity you get to meet amazing people who do amazing things (too much use of the word amazing, but can I do?). This is how I met Eshna at The Magnetic Fields. She just went on and on with her hula-hoop while Delhi Sultanate and BFR performed. . The way she moved with her props was like watching water flow. Watching her perform on my instastory, a couple of people from Delhi flow arts community pointed out who she was. Eshna is an amazing performer and a wonderful athlete. Also, she is one of the people who have been featured in the ad of Google Pixel. ๐Ÿ˜ . I, I just loved what she was doing at that moment. The introduction happened way later. . #Travel #MagneticFields #Rajasthan #Alsisar #untamedjourneys#IncredibleIndia #Myluxetravel #IAmNikon #lonelyplanetindia #everydayindia #cntgiveitashot #IndiaPictures #shotoniphone #indianphotography #HalfArtist #worldbestgram #igersoftheday #photojournalism #mypixeldiary #vscocam #iphoneonly #bbctravel #travellingdiaries #myindiacnn #ig_worldclub #huffpostgram #India

Magnetic Fields, Indiaโ€™s premium Music and Electronic dance festival is one of its kinds. No other music festival in India is organized inside a palace. The Grand and Opulent Al Sisar Mahal is a heavenly setting for this mega music festival to take place. The dates of Magnetic Fields music festival are announced for this year and you can make your bookings before it is too late.

Fun at Magnetic Fields

Music lovers visit Magnetic Fields for their amazing line up. My two visits have introduced me to some amazing bands like The F16, Ska-Vengers, BFR Sound System, Machinedrum and more. Magnetic fields is one great platform for Indie bands in Indian subcontinent and a chance to see international personalities is really high here.

So now that you are sorted about stay at Magnetic Fields and have received your passes, you should look forward to the food and drinks scene at the venue. For someone like me, who is not that much interested in EDM, the amazing food setup is really attractive.

The eating options at Magnetic Fields range from Indian, continental, and desi street food. You can choose anything according to your budget and it wonโ€™t really disappoint you.

 

Since Magnetic Fields stages are divided in four different areas, the food stalls are arranged in same way. Two major food stalls are present inside the palace and another in the desert right next to the camping grounds. These two stalls have everything to solve your hunger pangs. You will find Indian Thali, Pizza, Pasta, Hot Dogs and even the humble coffee from Blue Tokai Roasters.

Another stall is inside the compound of the palace where the main event takes place in the night. Same stall along with 3 bar counters are here to make your night amazing. Since the music goes on till 4 AM, you will not run out of eating options anytime sooner.

My favorites were

Artisan Meats โ€“ Based in Delhi, they locally source meat, both chicken and pork and offer amazing hot dogs and pork ribs. One of the must try at the festival.

Asian Haus โ€“ They really outdid themselves with the top notch Asian street food available 24×7. Everything was really delicious

Fat Lulu’s – I have visited their outlet in SDA so I know that the quality of their pizza and Pasta is world class. The wood fire pizza was really delicious.

Blue Tokai โ€“ Their presence was just so helpful for me as I was working at the campsite and photography team and had to awake for long hours

Bhajan Dhaba โ€“ Bhajan Dhaba offers your cravings for Indian Thali. Both Vegetarian and Non-vegetarian Thalis are available here

Ammaโ€™s Haus โ€“ Ammaโ€™s Haus is a part of Asian Haus chain that specializes in South Indian cuisine. I had a plate of Dosaย  with chicken (or may be it was mutton I donโ€™t remember lol) and it was simply delicious

Bakermania โ€“ Finally, what is a festival without the desserts. Bakermania offers amazing deserts, waffles, brownies and fannel cakes.

Budget food at Magnetic Fields

 

While the food setup at Magnetic Fields is a little costly and on the higher side of the pocket, you can always ditch this scene to taste some local food. The road connected the camping venue and the palace is filled with amazing street side foods. You can feast on Maggi, chicken and mutton curries prepared in Rajasthani style and spend your evenings tasting pakodas and fried chicken.

This year, when you visit Magnetic Fields, make sure that you enjoy the food scene as much as you spend your time with the music. It is a great experience to be a part of this festival.

So a lot of you have been asking me how do I manage to travel all year long Here is a simple answer; I make money while I am traveling. I guess that sounded really complicated :P. Okay here is a long answer. I left my job in June 2017 because of anxiety and depression. Before that, I worked in the corporate structure of Delhi from Feb 2015 to June 2017. During this time period I managed to travel 20 locations including Ziro and Kinnaur. If my friends anxiety and depression had not been such a great help I would have never left Delhi and still would have managed to travel across India and may be aboard. How I am traveling and earning after I left my job? I am a writer by profession. When I left my job and decided that being a digital nomad is what I have to do, the first thing I did was to pitch different travel companies and writing agencies that why they should hire me. I started with two clients paying me INR 250 per article and exploiting as much as they could. I got my first major client in November 2017 and now I have four clients who send me their content requisition on a monthly basis and I work from whatever place I am. Being a writer gives me freedom to work from whatever place I want to. But my job requires a huge commitment, timeline and deadline. At time, clients donโ€™t pay on time and that is again a different sort of anxiety. Some of my clients have not paid me in months and that is another form of irritation that your hard work has gone to waste. I got my first and only photography gig last month, 70% payment for which still remains pending. I hate traveling with two huge bags of camera and laptop that adds to almost 30 kgs of weight that I carry on an average when I am moving from a place to another. Half of my life exists in my laptop and a minor bump on bus or train gives me a mini heart attack.
