If there’s one thing that most musicians and fans alike were missing for the past one year, it was the festival atmosphere. Over at the Nahargarh Ranthambore in Rajasthan, Ray-Ban Studios partnered with the debut edition of Magnetic Fields Nomads (the more exclusive, luxuriant iteration of the annual music festival in Alsisar) to bring back a celebratory music experience, held between March 19th and 21st.

True to the Magnetic Fields stamp, Nomads led with the Ray-Ban Studios Pool Party in the day, a Ray-Ban Studios Den performance space after sunset, and a special in-house Track Lab for musicians to jam. Amid Rajasthani hospitality, cutting edge electronic music and more, performances at these spaces included seasoned DJ-producers such as MoCity, Stalvart John, Spacejams and more.

A oft-visited space at the festival was the Ray-Ban Studios Hub, which housed the Track Lab for spontaneous music making (visited by everyone from New Delhi producer-singer Lifafa to DJ Nash and more) as well as a photo booth for making and preserving future memories.

The Ray-Ban Studios Pool Party ran from noon until sunset, serving up music that would ease attendees into the day and keep them moving. Between Saturday and Sunday, Kochi/Bengaluru DJ-producer Stalvart John transplanted the Dynamite Disco Club vibe to Nahargarh, aided by fellow Bengaluru-based DJ-producers Unnayaana and Carissa. New Delhi-based Girls Night Out aka Vijayant Singh had his second performance of Nomads at the Ray-Ban Studios Pool Party, serving up punchy house, wave, disco, EBM, new beat and techno.

By dusk and nightfall, the Ray-Ban Studios Den kicked off with the true essence of an afterhours underground electronic club vibe. The primal music that drew big numbers to the Ray-Ban Studios Den was selected and spun by producer-DJs such as Shireen, Chhabb and DJ MoCity. Also taking things into overdrive were can’t-fail sets by party-starters such as NASH, Magnetic Fields regular Spacejams and topsy-turvy set from New Delhi duo MadStarBase, who all ensured that Ray-Ban Studios and Magnetic Fields Nomads powered on well into the early morning, as is tradition at the original festival as well.
