25 December, 2010

Madness, Mmayhem Mand indulgence under a balmy sky on a holiday beach seems to be the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season. At least for Bollywood. While Goa readies itself for Sunburn, the nation’s biggest electronic music festival, a number of film stars have already booked their place in the VIP section this year. Sisters Sonam and Rhea Kapoor with their father Anil, Arjun and Mehr Rampal and Neha Dhupia are the confirmed names on the guest list. There’s also talk about Shah Rukh Khan attending the festival, but his spokesperson says that the actor may be busy wrapping up the last schedule of Ra.One before he heads to Dubai to ring in the New Year. 

My phone has been constantly ringing. Everybody is requesting for a seat, “says Shailendra Singh, festival director. Sunburn has always drawn the biggest names in the nation’s party circuit. Anushka Manchanda and Prateik Babbar are just a few names from previous years’ guest lists. In its third year, Sunburn’s artiste roster includes some of the biggest names in EDM. As a last minute addition, Grammy-winning DJ, Paul Van Dyk will be one of the festival’s headlining acts.” I’m very excited and can’t wait for the festival to begin. The lineup this year looks brilliant,” says comedian and TV host Ash Chandler. 

Nikhil Chinappa, organiser and brain behind Sunburn describes it as India’s biggest festival. “We have been growing bigger in terms of audience and stage and artiste line-up each year. I’m looking forward to hosting the biggest festival in India,”saysChinapa. Sunburn will be held between December 27 and 29. Joining Van Dyk will be Ferry Corsten and Axwell as the headlining acts for the nights.
