Magnetic Fields, India’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.

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

Amma’s Haus – Amma’s Haus is a part of Asian Haus chain that specializes in South Indian cuisine. I had a plate of Dosa  with chicken (or may be it was mutton I don’t remember lol) and it was simply delicious

Bakermania – 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.
