Rajasthan is widely known for its artistic and traditional music worldwide but owing to the diversity there are few destination festivals in Rajasthan that allow you to dig into the absolute madness of techno music. Jaipur Beat recently experienced the one with unadulterated sound, lighting, and ambiance at District- where India’s first techno music festival celebrated its first edition of “DISTRICT”.
District Local was truly colossal with non-stop spree of good vibes and top-notch techno against the backdrop of magnificent heritage heaven- Castle Kalwar, which is set in a small Kalwar village in the outskirts of Jaipur city at a distance of nearly 20 Kms.
Imagine your ears tuned into music for this marathon event that lasted for 72 hours from 2nd-4th March 2018, where country’s best techno DJs stepped up on the DJ decks, to produce an implausibly hitting soundtrack. Well, it was an experience beyond words.
Our reluctance to spend a night at the accommodation vanished the moment we entered the premises of tent city at Locals DISTRICT, which was just a few yards away from the venue. We immediately dropped the idea of leaving at night and opted for our well-furnished tents, en suite bathroom, with charging points, carpet flooring and running water supply.
As we walked through the narrow lanes of Kalwar village, it felt like we are some million galaxies away from the world around us – it was a pure ecstasy. On entering Castle Kalwar, the mesmerizing lasers and light shows falling on the walls of the Castle in the splendor of moonlight were breathtaking. Just walking around the festival was an adventure in itself. The bar, the food stall set up, small flea market and the little chill-out area was setting the impeccable mood.
District Locals was a one of a kind festival in Rajasthan that brought an immense talent to a grand musical platform which was truly a revolutionary experience. Everyone seemed to have the time of their lives singing and dancing with people from all around the world.
District LOCALS, was the ultimate TECHNO party in paradise where one could dance to the incredible tunes. So, if you’re a die-hard fan of the genre, we are sure you’ll be tempted to join the party next year!
