Dance through the night in paradise, get hypnotized by the ancient dances, sway to the melodies of Indian and International rock and folk… Make traditional arts and crafts, get blessed by an elephant, travel to Bollywood for a while, mingle with party-people from all around the world, camp out under the moonlight, get swept away by Fire Eaters, cool off at the Monsoon shower, sit back and open your heart to music and culture… become a part of everything that makes Pongal Fest the perfect mix of honoring traditions and partying to modern tunes. Pongal Fest is a celebration in honor of the harvest festival in Tamil Nadu. It is a time when locals give thanks to nature and celebrate the circle of life, providing them with valuable crops.
To promote this occasion, the Travel Scientists decided to organize a three-day festival on Bremajothi Farms, a uniquely beautiful botanical Utopia not far from Tuticorin. A vibrant turmoil between local art and music traditions, there will also be a number of international rock-folk performances to create a truly diverse scene. For the time of the festival, The Bremajothi Farms will transform into a veritable village, with a camping site and entertainment and activities around every corner. Visitors will be surrounded with unique landmarks and breathtaking botanical wonders. To make your stay comfortable, we’ll provide you with all the necessary facilities (refreshing stations, mobile chargers, storage lockers,) and to cool off after a steamy dance session, you can stand under the Mega Shower (our humongous shower that will recreate the feel of the monsoon rain). With a temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha, an enchanting well, and an Eden-like environment, you’ll come back with the sense of absolute zen and content.
Dance and martial arts shows, traditional and modern instrumental shows, and smashing rock-folk concerts await you! Some of our Pongal Fest activities will include Kolam and Pongapani workshops, yoga and Bollywood Zumba lessons, traditional Mehndi body painting and exciting contests. Children will have their very own Play Area and will be supervised. You can charge up your daily calorie intake at our Food Court which will have many delicacies, or take part in our Ethnic lunch for a taste of traditional Indian food. The Market Place and our Official Festival Merchandise Store will allow you to take the experience home with you after the three days are up. If you need to catch up with the outside world, visit our Internet Pavilion, or sit back and enjoy the festival in our Chill Zone after cooling off at the Monsoon Shower. The PongalShuttle will take you from Tuticorin to the venue, and you can camp under the stars – we will provide you with facilities where you can freshen up. Lockers, mobile chargers and a basic WiFi connection will be at your service for the time of the Festival. Organized for everyone between the ages of 0 to 105, Pongal Fest will leave you with an authentic Indian adventure to boast about to your friends.
