I am not much of an EDM fan. I fairly like this genre, but then after a couple of hours of listening to it I begin to miss words. And lyrics. But this weekend at the Future Theory Festival my perception of alternative electronic music was drastically altered. The Future Theory festival held on the 27th and 28th of February, comprising an impressive line up in this genre, promised two days of mind blowing music, and kick ass parties. But what excited me the most was the location – Fort Jadhavgadh – a three hundred year old Maratha fort, now converted into a luxury hotel with sprawling lawns and ancient architecture.
My Future Theory Festival experience was like sitting in a time travel machine that oscillated between a cultural past and a modern future.
Blast From The Past
I’m going to paint a little picture for you here – a lone 300 year old fort perched high on a hill, with a birds eye view of the surrounding greenery and sprawling lawns. A gorgeous, rustic fort with it’s wood design and stone work yet intact, complete with a beautiful museum providing a glimpse into the Maratha way of life back then. Here we experienced a party like no other!
