Some music festivals are focused only on the music, while others add a cause to their line-up and promote an issue as well. The third edition of Ranthambore Music & Wildlife Festival, to be held in December, will be a mix of both.

The 2 nights 3 days-long cultural fiesta will be held at the Nahargarh Ranthambore and will focus on both the need to preserve India's wildlife and the promotion of dying musical forms. The festival will do so through a spectacular banquet of world music, art, food and wildlife experiences.

The festival seeks to be a platform to honour Rajasthan's little-known, world-class musicians and celebrate the singular music traditions that have made the state synonymous with Indian folk music around the world. The festival will also draw attention to Rajasthan's legacy of wildlife, one of the reasons why the Nahargarh Ranthambore, which is just 4 km from Ranthambhore National Park, as chosen as the festival venue.
