Future Theory Festival

27th - 28th Feb 2016

Watch The Video

Future Theory Festival is a 2 day celebration & showcase of the emerging alternative electronic music scene in India. The festival offers a unique experience to the audience by providing a mix of carefully curated artists line-up, public art initiatives, nature trails and a weekend getaway all set inside a 17th century fort.

Future Theory has something special for anyone who chooses to step into our time machine. If time travel is really your thing - then let us take you back in time to 17th century and give you a glimpse into the world of the fierce Maratha Warriors with a tour of the hallowed corridors of the Fort Jadhavgadh. Take leisurely strolls across the never ending grounds which may lead you to a chance encounter with the birds of paradise.

Once the sun begins to set, the fort grounds come to life with myriads of happy faces taking centre stage on the dance floor and stepping into our time machine once again, but this time we are going forward.

We step into the future.

The venue for our first ever Future Theory Festival is as grand as they come. Fort Jadhavgadh is a 300 year old heritage property which was converted into a uber luxury heritage hotel in the last decade. The rich cultural history of the property and the royal hospitality is as good as it gets. The Fort is a mere 2 hour drive from Mumbai (1 hour from Pune).

The fort is close to Pune, in the midst of fig and custard apple farms with a backdrop of the hill of Dive Ghat. Hills surround the structure, brown in summer and bright green in the monsoon. Despite the alterations, the original structure, built by Pilaji Jadhavrao, one of Chhatrapati Shahuji’s generals, is intact. Shahuji was the grandson of Shivaji and spent most of his childhood as a prisoner of the Mughals. When he was released in 1707, he picked a few warriors to build forts to protect his territory. Jadhavgadh was a safe haven and training centre for soldiers. The practical architecture lacks decorative carvings, but the durable stone and woodwork have endured.

When Vithal Kamath decided to restore Fort Jadhavgadh and turn it into a luxury resort in 2007, he was doing more than protecting a little piece of history. He was allowing travellers to imagine, for a little while, that they were fearless Maratha warriors. Maharashtra has over 300 forts in pristine locations high in the Ghats and on the pretty coastline but Fort Jadhavgadh is the only one where you can actually check-in and travel back in time.

Camping

Future Theory is excited to announce 'The Backpackers Trails' as the official camping partner for our festival at Jadhavgadh fort, this February.

Deflating air travel prices, the popularity of career breaks, and a growing generational sense of adventurism are rolling back the frontiers of backpacking. Destinations that were once on the road less travelled have become the beaten track, while the beaten track has in many cases been paved over, illuminated in neon and transformed into a fast lane for travelers. As the traditional backpacker destinations ossify under the glare of big-brand commercialism and rising accommodation prices, other directions are continually emerging. And this is where we “The Backpackers Trails” come onto the fore.

The Backpackers Trails is a one of a kind tour company with rich and varid experience in tours and treks to some of the lesser known places in India.
