Day 3 of Sunburn Goa 2013 was an out of this world experience.  The biggest crowd India has ever seen, came together from all corners of the globe, to be a part of Asia’s #1 Festival.

On Day 1 of the festival, before the gates even opened, there were over thousands fans waiting at the box office. With early entry completely unheard of India, Sunburn fans had not wanted to miss a single moment of what promised to be the biggest and best festival Asia had ever seen. As Sunburners toured the Vagator venue, 10 times larger than previous years, saw all 7 stages, including Asia’s largest ever festival stage, heard the game-changing sound from the 4 arrey sound system, and mapped out their experiences for the day – it was instantly apparent why Sunburn is the #1 Festival in Asia. 
With DJ’s like Andrew Rayel, Paul Ritch, Dickster , Shermonology, Apster, and Richard Durand, just to name a few, Sunburn fans joined their favorite DJs for full power dance session and proved that they knew their music. The highlights of Day 1 were the live performance sensation from South Africa – Goldifsh, and the mainstage headliner and returning Sunburn DJ – Afrojack.

Sunburners were overwhelmed with the amount of experiences on site to keep them busy. To get the best view of the festival below, fans hopped aboard the giant wheel, the hot air balloon or, for adrenaline junkies, up 300 feet onto the bungeejumping tower. Kite flying gave fans a moment of serenity and zorbing 9 pingave more than a few good laughs. Champion Sunburn cruises gave fans a floating party in the Arabian Sea and onsite camping gave a limited number of die-hard festival goers a full-power festival immersion.

During the middle of his record breaking set, to the massive crowd of adoring Sunburn fans, the world’s favorite DJ, Axwell, turned down the music to say, “Sunburn, I have to be honest with you. When I play for the money, I go to Las Vegas. When I play for the holiday, I go to Miami. When I play for love, I go to Sunburn India! There is so much love here tonight!”
And it wasn’t just the mainstage. All 7 stages were packed with fans enjoying every genre of EDM possible. At Space Station, Timo Maas concluded an incredible ‘vintage year’ with a killer set, just before the most respected DJ in the world hit the stage. With his unrivalled skills, Pete Tong and the All Gone Pete Tong stage was absolute magic. 
After watching the brilliant sunset over the Arabian Sea, psy lovers went mad at the Space Jungle stage. Ace Ventura, one of the busiest DJs in the industry, was followed by Starling’s aggressive twilight set. With no intentions of going anywhere else, the fans kept dancing until the very end of Reality Grid’s full-power set.

No ID, the Dutch Duo sensation totally killed it, getting the crowd revved up for the final headliner – the hottest House DJ/ Producer Duo on the planet - Prok and Fitch.
