Axwell ^ Ingrosso rocked Day 3 at Sunburn 10
31 December, 2016

Two thrilling days had set the set the mood for Day 3, packed with an explosive lineup and some smashing sets were to be witnessed.
 
The festival goers came in nice and early to catch Candice Redding and Makasi on the Main Stage; Canadian DJ Emenes, DJ Chico, Lilly Palmer, Aztec, 18 East on the Rayban Stage and Madoc, Progressive Bro, Rohan Kapoor and Nina X Malika on the Gionee Stage, interacting with the dedicated festival goers who couldn’t care less about the sweltering heat and just wanted to get the party started. They played familiar commercial tracks keeping the festival goers on their feet the whole time.
 
Chartered accountant turned music producer Sartek who’s signed with Hardwell’s music label paved the way for Miss Tara  who set the Main Stage ablaze with her tropical beats that complimented Pune’s cold wintery evening. The desi bass producer, Nucleya pumped up tracks off his new album Raja Baja and all his best tracks such as Meri Gully Mein, Akkad Bakkad, Aaja, Bass Rani and Let’s Nacho and didn’t disappoint.
 
Salvatore Ganacci , Kryder and Bollywood’s mash-up king  DJ Chetas on the Gionee Stage and Christian Smith and Yotto on the Rayban Stage played brilliant sets and while live mixing their music also danced very well at the turntables.
 
Sound system up to max, lights on full blast and the headliners on the Main Stage Axwell ^ Ingrosso kicked things off for the closing set and had the festival goers in full fist-pumping euphoria. What followed was a relentless, sensory assault for the next hour. Big track after big track, hints of past hits emerging then disappearing into the next before returning in full voice later in the set. Builds, drops and riffs set to synchronised lasers and ear-popping fireworks all pummeled a rapturous festival goers who erupted as old favourites and new bangers were greeted with cheers and beers flying through the air. Thank goodness then for a break on the hour mark as the pair slowed things down a fraction before ramping up again for the second half. With a new album on the way, there was plenty of exposure of tracks from it, both vocally-driven tunes, led to joyous, mass sing-a-longs; as did closers Sun Is Shining and Don’t You Worry Child. The festival goers lapped it up in and the energy was remarkable and no wonder the whole set lasted just two hours, an extended workout would have left everyone exhausted.
 
The lineup for Day 3 was undoubtedly the biggest among all three days, and the madness on the first two days had set up the stage perfectly for the closing day of the marvellous Sunburn 10.
 
Karan Singh, CEO Sunburn said, “We are pleased to have shifted to Pune. The ratio of bought passes to complimentary passes is 80:20. This means that the quality of the overall crowd is far superior from what we have witnessed in the last few years and people who have attended are here for the holistic experience. The camping site has been a huge hit amongst the festival goers apart from the sponsor experiences .”
