A cheering crowd, a colossal stage, amazing artists, whimsical music, delectable food, and beverages- all at a single destination!
Udaipur Lantern Festival 2017 will linger in our minds for the years to come. And, why not! It is the only festival in Udaipur that gathers the energetic people of Lakecity every year at a common place by the onset of Diwali.
In association with Livspace Designs, Udaipur witnessed more than 8000 people at Shouryagarh Resort & Spa celebrating the festivities of Diwali.
Since five years, Udaipur Lantern Festival has made efforts to bring everyone together at a common place to celebrate the onset of Diwali. Packed with mind-blowing live performances, selfie booths, food stalls and beautiful art installations ULF 2017 brought some of the staggering activities for the people at the fest.
Relive some of the amazing moments of our festival! And share your experience at the ULF 2017 with us.
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!!!
Last but not the least, we express gratitude to our partners, contributors, supporters, enthusiastic volunteers, our team and especially to the people of our city who have been supporting us and helping us in making the ULF happen each year successfully.
