Kerala Lit Fest is the second largest cultural gathering and the fastest growing literature festival in the continent. Set along the shores of the Arabian Sea by the beaches of Calicut, the KLF offers something for just about every age and interest, bringing readers and writers together for inspiration, entertainment, and discussion. Every year, the festival presents an array of the best artists, actors, celebrities, writers, thinkers, and activists closer to people by engaging in meaningful discussions on literature, art, cinema, culture, dance, music, environment, science, and technology. Fireside chats at night with a plethora of the biggest acts and performing artists from around the world make up the cultural nights at KLF. From carnatic concerts to progressive rock bands, from kijote kathakali to larissa, classical and flamenco dance performances, to puppet shows and theatre, the entertainment quotient reaches unprecedented heights at KLF, always.
Apart from literature being the primary cynosure, the focus theme of KLF 2020 will be environment and climate change.

With the goal of reaching as broad an audience as possible and including them in the festival in many ways, KLF remains open to the public, non-exclusive and open platform for discussions and idea exchanges.
