The 10th edition of the Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF), to be held from January 19 to 23 next year, will celebrate 70 years of Indian democracy with a strong focus on the theme ‘The Freedom to Dream‘: India at 70’, the organisers announced.
The event will be held at the same venue, the Diggi Palace Hotel, in the state capital.
Bringing together some of the greatest thinkers and writers from across the South East Asia and the world, Jaipur Literature Festival has grown from a modest beginning to the largest Free Literature Festival in the world. With an approximate attendance of nearly 100,000 annually, the festival draws hordes of audience and guests from over the world during the 5 day event, which usually takes place in the third week of January.
The Festival is essentially an event of coming together of some of the world’s greatest minds, historians, humanitarians, sports people, business leaders and entertainers from all walks of life who share the stage and put forward their ideas and thoughts.
Equity and democracy run through the Festival’s veins, providing access for all to some of our greatest writers and thinkers along with a space to dare, dream and imagine; a powerful statement in a country where such opportunities remain the privilege of a few.
Jaipur Literature Festival is a free un-ticketed event, but registration for the same is compulsory. However, the Evening Music Sessions at Clarks Amer are ticketed and you need to contact the press office if you want to attend these events. Registration for the event can be done by clicking here.
Mark your calendars folks!
