Jaisalmer Desert Festival - not to be missed or touristy and crowded?

Hi IndiaMike folks,

We are presently scheduled to be in Jaisalmer during the Desert Festival in February 2012. We didn't really plan to do that on purpose but it just turned out that way. At first I thought it sounded fun, but now as I'm trying to make a hotel reservation and hearing from the hotels that it is expected to be very busy with everything full I'm getting worried that it might be more stressful than fun. Has anyone been in Jaisalmer during the festival who could lend a little perspective on things for me?

Not been there till date but heard that it can get crowded. Hopefully someone who has been there will answer this though.

Hi - this is the first time I've ever posted on a forum of any sort, so sorry if I'm doing this wrong. We have exactly the same question a year down the line. We would like to hear first hand from someone who has been as to whether it feels an authentic glimpse of desert culture or is a tourist trap? How did you find it Seattlered?
