Jodhpur RIFF

The Jodhpur RIFF (Rajasthan International Folk Festival) is “India’s premiere international roots music festival of folk, indigenous, jazz, reggae, classical and world music”. It takes place every October around Sharad Poornima, the night of the brightest full moon in north India, in the intimate setting of the spectacular fifteenth-century Mehrangarh Fort.

Annually featuring more than 350 young and legendary musicians from Rajasthan, India and the world, the festival is a mix of free and ticketed daytime concerts and club nights, held from dawn to dawn. Over 3,00,000 concert goers have been treated to performances by more than 900 artists and ensembles from over 30 countries at the Jodhpur Rajasthan International Folk Festival since it began in 2007.

Among the several stalwarts to have played the festival are Lakha Khan, Vikku Vinayakram, Shubha Mudgal, Manu Chao, Wouter Kellerman and Jeff Lang. Maharaja Gaj Singh II of Marwar-Jodhpur is Chief Patron and rock royalty Mick Jagger is International Patron of Jodhpur Rajasthan International Folk Festival, which takes place under the aegis of the Mehrangarh Museum Trust. The last edition was in 2019 and the next will be staged in 2022.
