Print

6 years of consistently bringing to us the best EDM acts from all over the world has turned Sunburn into the most-awaited music festival of the year. And from what we hear, Sunburn Goa has just turned 10 times bigger than last year.

Vagator is the new home for Sunburn this year – spread over 500,000 sq.m of exotic festival area, Sunburn Goa is going to be the biggest electronic music festival of Asia till date with 7 massive stages where more than 120 artists will be performing for over a span of 3 days.

Sunburn Goa is serving a varied palette of genres this year including Trance, House, Electro, Techno, Drum & Bass, Psy-trance and Experimental. Global superstars like Axwell, Afrojack, Markus Schulz, Pete Tong, Mark Knight, Andrew Rayel, Quintino, James Zabiela, Ummet Ozcan, flanked by the best Indian talents like Dualist Inquiry, (S)haan, Lost Stories, Anish Sood, Kohra, Jayant, Nucleya, are all set to bring the house down at this edition of Sunburn Goa. Three very special stages are also going to be showcased – Jacked! presented by Afrojack, Toolroom Knights by Mark Knight, and the All Gone Pete Tong stage presented by Pete Tong.

With elaborate food courts and onsite camping, unlimited parking and after-parties, Sunburn Goa is brimming with the possibility of bringing newer and better experiences. A totally redesigned flea market, a book library, circus tents, and an open air movie theatre, an above sea-level psy stage, a kite festival, a ferris wheel, a huge sports village and a Sunburn cruise on the Arabian Sea is what’s in store for those who want to take a small break from the music!

Percept seems to have left no stone unturned in making sure that this festival is the biggest in Asia – with 120+ artists and 200 hours of electronic music, Sunburn Goa will also see Asia’s largest single stage set in a natural amphitheatre. Cubezoid had been the audience favourite for the last two years and this year Darkroom, from the UK has re-designed the stage is a bigger and better way. Excited yet? We are too. It’s time to get Sunburnt!
