Bhakti Fest reached its peak attendance since its inception in 2009 though there weren’t powerhouse World music bands such as Salif Keita’s in the line-up this year, mainly local acts as opposed to international. The festival took place in its usual desertic setting in the Yucca Mountains, in the Joshua Tree desert to be more specific. Thousands of Yoga adepts and Hindi culture enthusiasts traveled from all over the globe to camp and enjoy Yoga classes (slow or fast-paced, all levels) and workshops from world-class trained experts. Traditional Kirtan music or fused with modern music (Hip hop, Reggae, Dance) was played by various bands and DJs. There were healthy vegan food and artistic craft from local state vendors. Musical performances lasted until 3AM and some food and craft vendors also remained open until then. The festival was a definite success and will feature more eclectic and dynamic acts as well as a stronger line-up in the future, per its new production management.
