Qutub Festival

The Qutub Festival of Classical Music and Dance is held in the month of November-December to commemorate the historical importance of Qutub Minar. Organized in collaboration with Delhi Tourism, the Qutub Festival showcases the rich grandeur of India and its cultural accomplishments in the various forms of dance and music. This way, the Festival attempts to bring the heritage monument to life and provides a platform for preservation of classical Indian art.

Set against the majestic backdrop of the Qutub Minar itself, this annual cultural extravaganza is an endeavor to present a cross section of performances by various Indian artistes. Spread over three days, the festival is dedicated to the youth of Delhi and brings the whole place alive with the echoes of soulful melodies and rhythm of the ghungroos. Visitors to this exotic dance festival can expect to see classical dance performance by reputed artists, listen to beautiful renditions of ghazals and qawwalis and be mesmerized by Sarangi and sitar recitals.

The festival attracts large numbers of visitors, amongst which a sizeable portion are foreigners, eager to glimpse at the rich cultural heritage of India. As your eyes feast on the cultural extravaganza of music and dance, treat your palate to culinary delights that are available at the stalls put up by different states.
