About Soul Fest

A festival of all that raptures the soul

An amalgamation of art, literature, music, dance, drama and more, Soul Fest is an escape from life’s daily humdrum and a retreat into its rhythm and beauty. In the city lights of Faridabad, it’s a celebration of art, culture and literature; of expression and appreciation; of learning and absorbing the beauty around us.

This dream aims to capture the beauty of life in every way possible: from celebrating life and its experiences by harbouring dignitaries from all walks of life to promoting the spirit of debate and discussion through author talks.

Carve a mark with your craft

Traditional craftsmen are what form the heart of any city, any nation’s culture. Apart from sensory attractions, the fest will also showcase Khari-Dwar: a door for all those who give a tangible purpose to their art and creativity. It aims to put together a variety of local and global products catered to artistic manoeuvres under the same roof for all of our attendees. From contemporary clothing to fashion jewellery, from handcrafted gifts to fun stationary- we are happy to house anything and everything that satisfies our aesthetic temptations. If you would like to join this exquisite display of craftsmanship, please sign up for one of our stalls to become a part of our fest. Hurry up, before we run out!
