Ranthambore Festival has got a fascinating mix of activities that’ll make every member of the squad happy. There’s folk music from India, Germany, Israel, Bangladesh and France that’ll bring the stone amphitheatre to life. Fans of Farhan Akhtar can witness his live performance or if you’re a folk purist, you’ve got to hear Ram Swaroop, Kanha Ram or a 12-person nagara ensemble.

If music isn’t your jam, watch films, attend talks, go on tiger safaris or sign up for a heritage bicycle tour. There’ll be enough to keep you occupied through three days whether you’re the drum circle loving type or the type who’s always found near the food stalls {they have secret royal suppers and a full-fledged Food Fete with khaandaani Rajasthani delicacies}. After all this heavy-duty food, make sure you hit up the blindfolded hatha yoga class.
