Rave Parties and Sun Burn Festival Goa 2011

by Madhav Srinivasan 1985 days ago

The Sunburn Festival is a spectacular entertainment show held each year that attracts even more tourists to the ever popular destination of Goa. The 3-day festival sets the tone for the celebrations that break out all over the city to ring in the New Year

The Goa Sunburn Music festival is an Electronic Music Show held at the end of December each year. Organized by Percept, in partnership with Nikhil Chinappa ‑ a popular VJ and entertainment show host, the festival has been held every year since 2007. The entertainment show is held over a period of 3 days. National and international artists, from all genres of music gather here to give live performances and entertain the crowds, creating a party atmosphere to herald in the New Year.

During this festival, various beach parties are held around the city, and the party atmosphere catches on. The Sunburn Festival is held at Candolim Beach, Goa. Artistes and bands perform live on multiple stages simultaneously so that the audience can pick their favorite group and groove to their favorite music. The Sunburn Festival is not just about music. The show also offers an excellent opportunity to taste delicious and varied cuisines. Tourists should also go for a shopping extravaganza on the Goa tour packages.


The Festival Thus Far

In 2007, the festival was held for two days on 28 and 29 December. The Mumbai Terrorist attacks in November of 2008 created apprehension about whether the festival could go ahead as planned that year. However, the festival was held for a period of 3 days, and it was a huge success. In 2009, the festival attracted more than 22,000 visitors, and the year saw the launch of After Dark parties at Club Butter. In 2010, Percept ran a Sunburn Anthem Contest. A fashion show was also organized at Club Butter.

In 2011, the Sunburn Festival is scheduled to be held from 27 to 29 December at Candolim Beach and once can conveniently reach Goa by taking up packages from Mumbai or Chennai.
