Magnetic Fields planning to increase the capacity of the visitors

MUMBAI: After making a successful debut, Magnetic Fields returns to Alsisar Mahal, a 17th century palace, with the promise of the freshest sounds from India and around the world, and an immersive experience for music fans, this December. ?The festival will be held from December 12-14 at Alsisar Mahal in Alsisar, Rajasthan.

Talking about the response they received last year, one of the co-organisers of Magnetic Fields, Munbir said, "Last year was our first year and it was incredible for us. We were extremely happy with the kind of response we got."

‘So what is going to be different about Magnetic Fields this year', to which Munbir said that there are no major changes happening this year. "The only thing we are doing is increasing the capacity of the number of people but it would be lesser as compared to any other festival as we do not want the attendees to lose intimacy with the festival."

The first line up of artistes include both Indian and international names. The Indian names include Dualist Inquiry, Monica Dogra as a solo performer, a full-festival showcase by the Mumbai-based Bhavishyavani Future Soundz collective featuring M Mat, Loopkin and Spacejams, the mellifluous pop artiste Nischay Parekh with drummer Jivraj Singh, who will also be playing with the Kolkata-based experimental electronica outfit, Pinknoise, a full live show by singer-songwriter Nicholson, Delhi-based electronica producers Soulspace and Curtain Blue, newly-formed dreamy psychedelia band Begum, Delhi Sultanate's new solo avatar BassFoundation Roots, ‘noise' rock band Hoirong and Bangalore-based downtempo duo Sulk Station, who will finally make their Magnetic Fields debut after missing out last year, and post-rock band Until We Last, also from Bangalore.

The international performers include Dream pop producer and 20-year-old Parisian Dream Koala. The producer will join highly-regarded Spanish electronica whizkid BeGun, London-based Sri Lankan-born garage/ bass producer My Panda Shall Fly – who also played at the Magnetic Fields pre-party in London in July, young British garage house producer Flava D, German techno exponent Pawas, London-based hip-hop and funk legend DJ Vadim, multimedia artiste and producer Zahed Sultan and singer-songwriter Graciela Maria, who has worked with Koch and the founder of Reggae Rajahs and a popular face in India DJ MoCity, who now lives in Dubai .
