India’s hosting its first ever festival with these lovely ingredients: adventure, music, and wellness! And it is called the Forest Escape Festival. Nestled in the Shivalik foothills at the northern periphery of the State of Punjab, the event will be held at the Kikar lodge. It is definitely going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all the nature and music enthusiasts out there. Guess what, it’s not too far; the dates are 22 – 24 November this year.

The Forest Escape Festival will be an outdoor experience in India’s largest private forest reserve, which is 1800 acres. The festival will feature a mix of homegrown artists like Kohra, Medival Punditz, Jitter, Shiva Moon, to name a few and also International Artists such as Luis M and David Gaya among others.

The location of the event couldn’t be better- set amidst Mother Nature with pure air in abundance. You could book yourself from a range of high-end bungalows and tents; and indulge in the three swimming pools and a spa that’ll help you to unwind from the stresses of everyday city life.

With an idea to bring people together to explore the untouched beauty of the nature through a bunch of exciting activities, adventure sports like quad biking, paint balling, horse – riding, mountain bike riding trails, zip lining, and night jeep safaris are going to be part of the event for all the adrenaline junkies.

An organic flea market that will offer organic food products, recycled merchandises, as well as clothes; photography competition; world class spa, a wellness space for yoga, and meditation, plus high-octane MMA classes – there’ll be something for everyone out there.
