Know about the most loved festival of Udaipur- Udaipur Light Festival 2018

Udaipur’s Most Loved Festival made history on 4th November 2018! A whooping footfall of 8000+ people was witnessed on the event day. Yes! You heard me right! 8000+ people; which is undoubtedly the highest number ever seen in any private festival In and Around Udaipur. This whole write-up is dedicated to the tiniest to the largest elements of Udaipur Light Festival 2018, which made the festival ‘Oh-So-LIT’!!!

For all those who were a part of this colossal and magnificent festival can relive the memories, while for the ones who didn’t show up- we are giving you reasons why to attend the festival NEXT YEAR!

The 7th Year of Udaipur Light Festival was not just bigger and better but an epitome of excellent celebrations for the people of Udaipur. A one-of-a-kind and state-of-art concept of UDAIPURBLOG that is new and fresh every year- as they say, “Fine Wine Gets Better with Time”.

So, what made ULF so LIT…LIT AF?

A festival for the people of Udaipur

ULF is indeed the most loved and happening festival and we the people of Udaipur long to attend such an amazing day around Diwali. Starting from the venue I have listed everything that has made ULF 2018 a MEGA HIT.

Venue

The spanking venue, little away from the hustle bustle of the main city, nestled amidst nature- Shouryagarh Resort & Spa was one idyllic place for ULF. All green and ample space for creating the magic of ULF 2018.

Theme

This year ULF was inspired by Light so you wouldn’t have to guess or be surprised to find a décor with a lot of light and LIT elements. An amazing theme to compliment the concept of Diwali Season, sure to transcend you to another world!

Artists

Kutle Khan at ULF 2018
BPRAAK at ULF 2018
DJ DUO Shameless Mani & Shanaya at ULF 2018

A power-packed lineup is all you need to make the crowd ga-ga! Kutle Khan Project was the first artist to perform at ULF 2018 and no doubt the folk artist took our hearts away with his energetic stage presence. Headlining the event was ‘Musical Journey by B PRAAK’ who has sung some amazing songs including the very famous, Mann Bharrya. The artist gave a powerful performance and the people of Udaipur loved him.

Last up, the amazing DJ-Duo Shameless Mani & Shanaya took the stage and dropped some pounding bass. Their performance was dripping in energy and electric vibe! The event flow was amazingly managed by dashing Emcee Vishaal Aloysius Rasquinha.

How many of you did actually lose track of time? I know a lot would say yes!

Stages

Never-seen-before, there were 2 stages at ULF 2018. The LBERT acoustic stage which I could call the eye-candy stage became the major attraction during the daytime. With back to back singers, percussionists and lot many multi-genre artists performing live, this stage was on fire.

The Main Stage got the best of the attention of the crowd after the dusk began. The blinding lights coordinated with music were amazing and peeps were TRIPPIN’ over it which made it totally LIT!!!

Sound 

The never seen before heart throbbing Sound on LAcoustics K2 which touched everyone’s heart and soul.

Production

Seriously, guys, that is something you can call LIT AF! The entry was lit and then my favorite part- the LED screen placement of ‘UDAIPUR’. The stage, the photo booths, the décor at the food court and whatnot; the production was never seen before a no-brainer.

Food Court

8 food stalls at the food court of ULF catering to diverse taste buds were located just as you entered the main arena close to the LBERT acoustic stage. The food stalls also accepted electronic mode of payment easing out hassle, giving you a cashless experience.

Adventure Zone

First time in Udaipur, Body Zorbing was introduced in any festival or an event. Also, there were Water roller and Meltdown which were also new to any event in Udaipur.

LIVE Men’s Grooming

In association with our men’s grooming partner, LBERT Men’s Grooming, ULF 2018 witnessed a whole new concept of LIVE men’s grooming. Guys could actually go there and get themselves groomed at the stall. There were two hair stylists present at the stall who were styling hair and beards of the guys. It was again a one-of-a-kind concept in any event in Udaipur.

Zero tolerance to drugs and any malpractices

“We cannot control everyone present at the venue, but we make sure to check everyone prior to entering in the venue. We have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to any kind of narcotics or malpractices. When someone is caught with drugs or indulged in any kind of ill-practice we immediately expel them out of the festival,” Ronak Chauhan, Team ULF.

The presence of drugs, cigarettes and other forms of narcotics cannot be denied at any festival but we keep our policies straight.

Behind Udaipur’s most loved festival

Behind the scenes is too mainstream, we work on the front! Hard work, dedication, round-the-clock work and days of sweating in the sun has made ULF a masterpiece as it is. A special thanks to all our team members and volunteers, without them it can never have that essence of glory!

We would also like to extend our gratitude towards our main sponsors without whom ULF would not have emerged as one great festival: MIRAJ Group, Rivona Naturals, LBERT Men’s Grooming.

The amazing production team which made it well coordinated and LIT –

Mega Sound – For the Amazing Sound that Udaipur got to experience. 

Ananta Stage Craft – For the LIT Stage Lights.

Apsara Tent House –  For the Ground Production & Decor.

Bharat LED Wall – For the Creative ‘UDAIPUR’ LED. 

Associates and Supporters: 94.3 MY FM, Pearl Suzuki, Astronomia Shoppe, VJ Ravi, Thrill zone, Shouryagarh Resort and Spa, Bling Ping Motion Pictures, Star Photoworks, Sancheti Automobiles, Forum Celebration Mall, Assure IT Infra, Naman Fireworks & Events, The Enchanted Affair, Phonographic Performance Limited, NOVEX, Royal Stache, Robin Hood Army, Pukaar Foundation, Dynamic Security, and BFSA.

Things to keep in mind before going to Udaipur Light Festival 2018

The most happening festival of Rajasthan – Udaipur Light Festival 2018 is around the corner and the adrenaline rush of every Udaipurite is going to pump up real soon. But at such festivals, a little carelessness of ours makes our experience unpleasant. So before heading towards the world of amazement, check out the list we have prepared about the things you should keep in mind before going to ULF 2018.

Collect your passes and wristbands beforehand

For the entry to ULF 2018, you have to first buy the passes which will let you redeem the wristbands. The wristband is necessary for you to enter the ULF ground. Now, make sure that you collect your passes and wristbands before the event so that you don’t have to stand in long queues also the chances to miss any of the exciting activities inside reduces.

Style like you own it

Styling for an event like ULF 2018 is a very confusing as well as an important task as there are going to be a lot of people you’ll meet in the festival and you won’t want to leave a bad impression on any of the people around you, right? So it is important to select the right outfit for yourself which will not just look good on you but will also give you all the comfort that you need so that when you groove your feet on the music, you don’t have to manage your outfit repeatedly.

Don’t forget to grab a quick bite in between activities

We know the activities inside the event are too happening but make sure you grab a quick bite in between them. There will be a lot of stalls placed on the venue from where you can choose whatever you want to have. Make sure to remain hydrated throughout. You wouldn’t want to faint in the middle of the event.

Make new friends

At festivals like such, hordes of people throng from different cities. Don’t be a sourpuss and make sure that you make a lot of new friends. Be the social butterfly and I bet you won’t only have the best time of your life but you would also learn innumerable things from people with different mindsets.

Don’t miss the adventure activities

While everyone is excited about the musical performances, trust me, the adventurous activities before them are as happening as ever. These interactive games and adventurous sports will give you a perfect opportunity to connect to different people while having fun. And who knows who might end up winning a game or two.

What to carry

There are several things that you should carry to the event which will make your event smooth and reduce any hindrance.

Selfie stick – Trust me, you’re going to capture a lot of pictures with a lot of people. A selfie stick will come in handy at such moments and will give you a bunch of stunning pictures.

Face mist – Sweat is very natural with a huge crowd dancing on the beats of amazing artists. A face mist will keep you going and refreshed for the rest of the event.

A water bottle – It is important to stay hydrated and at the same time it is not possible to run from one corner to another to drink water during a concert, so keep a water bottle with you to not get tired and have the most out of ULF 2018.

Some cash to go – keep a little cash with you in case you want to eat something or buy something from the stalls around.

एक सुखद एहसास दे गया ULF, वो एहसास जो अगले साल इसे और बड़ा बनाने का हौसला देगा

शुक्रिया उदयपुर 🙂

ULF17

शुक्रिया उन सभी का जिन्होंने हमारी इस ज़िद को अपनी ज़िद माना और इसे साकार कर दिखाया। उदयपुर ब्लॉग की ओर से हम उन सभी लोगो का आभार व्यक्त करते है जिन्होंने ULF को सफल बनाने के लिए प्रत्यक्ष या अप्रत्यक्ष दोनों रूप में सहयोग किया। हम यहाँ के प्रशासन का भी शुक्रिया अदा करते है जिन्होंने ULF में आए लोगो की सुरक्षा में कोई कसर नहीं छोड़ी हम साथ ही साथ हमारे सहयोगियों का भी आभार व्यक्त करते है जिन्होंने इतने बड़े फेस्टिवल को सफल बनाने के लिए हमारी हर पल मदद की। ये सब तभी संभव हो पाता है जब इतना जन-समर्थन आप लोगो के साथ खड़ा हो, जैसा की हमारे साथ था। ये सब व्यक्त करना मुश्किल लग रहा है क्यूंकि मन में जो विचार उठ रहे है उन्हें शब्द नहीं मिल पा रहे है। शब्द कम पड़ गए। जो उम्मीदें हमने शुरू में रखी वो सभी पूरी तरह से कामयाब रही।

हमें पूरी उम्मीद है आपने आर्टिस्ट परफॉरमेंस शुरू होने से ग्राउंड में पहले से चल रही एक्टिविटीज़ का भरपूर आनंद लिया होगा। फेस्टिवल को मैनेज करने के चक्कर में हम आप लोगो के साथ मज़े तो नहीं कर पाए पर आप लोगो को एन्जॉय करते देखना एक सुखद अनुभव था। ‘पापोन’ तो खैर इस फेस्टिवल की जान थे। ‘स्वराग’ को आपने भरपूर सराहा ही।

7000 से भी ज्यादा की अटेंडेंस एक सपना जैसा था। 3-टियर सिटीज में ये सब मुमकिन करना थोड़ा मुश्किल ज़रूर रहता है पर उदयपुर तुमने कर दिखाया। अब जब हम फोटोज़ में मुस्कराते चेहरे और झूमते युवाओं को देख रहे है तो अपनी ख़ुशी आप लोगो के साथ साझा करने से खुद को रोक नहीं पा रहे है। आपके चेहरों की मुस्कान, आप लोगो को इस कदर बेफिक्र होकर झूमते देखना, दो अनजान लोगो को एक स्टाल पर साथ बात करते हुए खाते हुए देखना ही तो हमारी सफलता है, यही तो हमारा हौसला है, यही तो हमें ताकत देगा कि अगले साल इसे और बड़े स्तर पर ले जाए चाहे कुछ भी हो जाए।

ulf17

इस 7000 के आकडे को 10,000 करना या उससे भी ज्यादा। ये सब ख्वाब है जो देखने चाहिए जैसे कि ये देखा था और पुरे करने में जुट गए। वैसे ही और ख्वाब बुनेंगे उन्हें पूरा करने में लग जाएँगे। ये सब भी आप ही की वजह से होगा। अंत में विदा लेने से पहले हम आप सभी लोगो का एक बार फिर से तह-ए-दिल से शुक्रिया अदा करते है।

“शुक्रिया तेरा तिरे आने से रौनक़ तो बढ़ी

वर्ना ये महफ़िल-ए-जज़्बात अधूरी रहती”

Unveiling Happiness

The festival commenced at 4:00 pm with several on ground activities like Dances by Rajasthani artists accompanied with Dhol & Nagada which added pinches of the eclectic culture of Rajasthan.

As the crowd started to gather on the ground, the fest also attained its momentum. The atmosphere was filled with enthusiasm and one could see a blend of happiness and amazement on the faces of the crowd gathered to witness a night of enjoyment and entertainment with their loved ones. The photo booths and stalls were overflowing with people taking pictures and having food and drinks and enjoying the fest.

Here comes the moment of the Fest!

At 6:30 pm the first performance of the Udaipur Lantern Festival 2017, Swaraag (Folk-rock Sufi Fusion Band) all the way from Jaipur took charge of the stage and totally mesmerized the gathering with their indo-western fusion music. No wonder, they were simply amazing and people were completely abounded by their enthralling performance. They were well taken by the crowd and received unmatched applause.

‘Mere Rashke Qamar’ made the crowd go Ga-Ga over the music of Swaraag and the energy was electric and could be easily seen by the applause from the spectators.

Post the performance of Swaraag, came the most awaited moment of the night- the live performance of PAPON.

His energy and love for the city resonated with the audience and we could hear the crowd screaming and cheering in utter liveliness for his songs. His soulful voice took over the stage at 8:00 pm and made the crowd swoon over his songs.

Unquestionably, the people of Udaipur loved PAPON and so did we!

An Electrifying DJ Session

Who does not love EDM! The DJ session pumped up the crowd post PAPON’s performance. DJ Kavish made the fest’s conclusion an electrifying one. The crowd was literally jumping with the beats of the music. What a night!!!

Memories Unfolded: Udaipur Lantern Festival 2016

Here ends Diwali and we are indulged in the memories that give us a feel of satisfaction to unite the lovely community of Udaipur. After a hectic schedule and break as well some moments still leave us spellbound when we look into the gleam of #ULF2016. With every passing year, Udaipur Lantern Festival has been a spectacular event amongst the people of LakeCity. And, this year also #ULF2016 has left so many unforgettable memories filled with happiness, joy, and a message to celebrate clean and green Diwali together with your family and friends.

A concept by UdaipurBlog, started with a lot of preparations, it came up as a challenge to make every arrangement and fulfil all the expectations with enthusiasm. But, by seeing the reviews, support, and love of people, we can say, we did extremely well. From Lanterns to display stalls, from delicious food to rocking musical night, it was blended with all the impressive things that you can think of.

From the very beginning, people enjoyed the counters of fun activities – Angry Birds, and Spin the Wheel. For introducing the community to heritage culture of Mewar, a stall of UdaipurBlog and Rajasthan theme were framed to let people know the rich hues of Mewar. To enjoy the fun of capturing beautiful moments, Selfie Booths with props were made available which flaunted Game of Thrones and Floral store. And, for satisfying hunger strikes live food counter of SpicySigdi was available there to serve delicious snacks, along with refreshing drinks by Brewberrys.

With the mesmerizing glimpse of Lanterns in the air, bright shine in the eyes of the people and smile on every face made the arena even more fascinating. And, that’s not all most important part of the production was handled by the main Presenter of the festival Frozen Apple Events. And, to give the direction of a voice to the fest anchoring was lead by RJ Ankit Mathur.

 

By adding more hype to the occasion, performance was thrown by the India’s leading fusion band NASYA who enthralled the stage and crowd with the rocking touch. Last but not the least; we can’t miss out the DJ night which was entangled with the performance of DJ NEET who added spice to the wonderful evening with the musical beats.

It was not just the evening, but an experience that would be cherished until the next Diwali. We can conclude it as a promise, a lantern for a cause that brought a light in the life of poor and unprivileged women and children of Ashadham Charitable Foundation with the amount of money that got collected from the entire event.
