Now here’s a music festival, the idea of which itself gives us goosebumps of anticipation! Parvati Peaking Festival, held every year in Parvati Valley, Himachal Pradesh is all about the experience! It is the only music festival to exclusively play Indian Psytrance music (an experience, we say!). Not just that, it also means that to experience this festival, you have to leave behind the comfortable 5-star hotel stay, and camp in the forests.

And as if that was not exciting enough, the venue can only be reached through an even more adventurous road journey! Although this year’s festival dates have not been confirmed yet, but with history of performers like DJ Set Hilight Tribe from France, Greg Hilight, Mad Maxx, Hydropanic, Labrats, Dirty Saffi and Psycobaba, it is a perfect package of music, fun and adventure, we’d say!
