Sunburn begins at Candolim beach
27 December, 2011

The long-awaited Sunburn dance festival kick started today as the Bollywood and international celebs are among the 80,000 visitors expected to throng the Candolim beach. The three-day extravaganza will have more than 60 DJs playing the electronic music for the crowd on seven separate stages spread across 20 acres, nearly thrice the size than last year. Talking at the kick off of Sunburn 2011, Shailendra Singh, Joint Managing Director, Percept Limited said Sunburn is the face of electronic dance music in Asia, as it completely understands the vibe of the dance music scene. “With the festival entering its fifth edition, we are going to make the experience of our Sunburn fans bigger and better. With the support of our loyalists all over the world, we have managed to make the sound of Sunburn much louder,” Singh said. The organizers have ensured elaborate traffic and security arrangements and most importantly medical assistance at the venue. The Electronic Dance Music Festival, which managed to get away with the controversies over government permissions, hit a fresh controversy when a national TV news cameraperson-cum-reporter complained of being manhandled by a bouncer while he was recording the show. The organizers have promised taking action against the bouncer. Organizes claim the event is a synergy of music, entertainment, sports, food, shopping and lifestyle that attracts music tourism in Goa. .
