Magnetic Fields Festival announces exciting additions to 2023 lineup
The Magnetic Fields Festival, taking place December 15-17 in Rajasthan, India, has announced several major additions to its already stellar 2023 lineup. The award-winning festival, known for showcasing diverse and cutting-edge sounds from India and around the world, has added some highly-anticipated acts.
Berlin-based Canadian music maverick Deadbeat joins the bill alongside a day of conversations for Magnetic Words – in collaboration with lifestyle magazine Platform – featuring Indian filmmaker Kanu Behl of Titli and Agra fame, photographer Sheetal Mallar, urban fusion artist Nysza and Puqaar NGO founder Abhimanyu Alsisar.
Other highlights include workshops enabling attendees to try block printing, playing with mud, and creating fragrances. The popular Teleconfusion installation also returns with wackier messages this year.
Headlining the Jameson Connects South Stage will be a stirring fusion of Indian classical and modern artists. Another South Stage highlight is the India debut of Australian psych-pop outfit Glass Beams. Dance and electronic acts like Spanish talent GAZZI and flamboyant troupe Dragalactiq are also on the schedule.
The festival’s Puqaar stage will celebrate Rajasthani folk arts with performances showcasing haveli sangeet and modern takes on ghazals. There will also be workshops, installations, and a marketplace highlighting the state’s artistic heritage.
The BUDx North Stage remains the epicenter of dance at Magnetic Fields, hosting pioneers and emerging talents pushing sonic boundaries. This year features boundary-pushing electronic producer I.Jordan, Milan-based Chilean DJ Paula Tape celebrated for her sun-soaked house, Glasgow selector Bake, rising stars like China’s Yu Su and Bahrain duo Dar Disku. India’s Rishi Sippy brings his signature sound while genre-bending producer Mella Dee and meteorically rising DJ ADHD join the ranks – continuing the stage’s legacy of introducing fresh, global dance acts to Indian crowds eager for the future.
With favorites returning alongside boundary-pushing newcomers across music, arts, and lifestyle, the 2023 Magnetic Fields lineup promises an unforgettable experience. Founder Munbir Chawla says each year they “showcase diverse, future-facing sounds from India and around the world” – and they seem set to deliver.
