Rajasthan International Folk Festival popularly known as Jodhpur RIFF, is an annual music and art festival organized to promote traditional folk music and arts held at Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The festival is planned to provide an open stage to all folk artists and musicians from India as well as from the globe. Around 250 musicians and artists from Rajasthan and elsewhere attend this festival.


Jodhpur RIFF takes place at a magical time of year, during the brightest full moon in north India. The festival is entirely outdoors with fantastic weather – wintry warmth in the afternoons and a pleasant chill in the evenings. The setting is stunning – a majestic and magnificent fort, a palace of yore, over 500 years old – overlooking the friendly and laid back city of Jodhpur. All this encapsulating Rajasthani and international folk and roots music of the highest quality – from dawn to dusk; at midnight; during the day as well as in the evenings – all in a variety of stunning courtyards. Ranked among the top 25 music festivals in the world, Jodhpur RIFF is India’s most significant roots music festival. A truly unmatched experience, unlike any other in the country.


The Jodhpur Rajasthan International Folk Festival or Jodhpur RIFF, is set to take place in Jodhpur from October 13 to October 17, 2016. Jodhpur RIFF is a not-for-profit partnership project involving two of India’s leading heritage trusts: Mehrangarh Museum Trust and Jaipur Virasat Foundation. The festival has been endorsed by UNESCO as a “Peoples’ Platform for Creativity and Sustainable Development.” Timed to coincide with “Sharad Purnima” the brightest full moon of the year in north India, Jodhpur RIFF features a series of spectacular concerts and events based in and around Mehrangarh Fort.
