Asia’s Biggest Music Festival ‘Sunburn’ has exclusively partnered with the World’s Biggest Social Media Platform Facebook to present the Digital Edition of the ‘Ultimate Sunburn NYE 2020’ in an effort to reach out to a wide geographical fan base. The ‘Castrol POWER1 ULTIMATE Sunburn NYE’ Show will be streamed live from 9.00 PM onwards on 30th & 31st December 2020 and broadcast over the Sunburn Facebook handle to reach over 2.5 Million fans around the world.

KSHMR whose original name is Niles Hollowell-Dhar has always had a strong connection to his Indian roots. His father came to USA from Kashmir, India — where the moniker KSHMR was derived at the age of 25. Having ascended DJ Mag’s Top 100 chart to number 12 in 2020, KSHMR had visited Mumbai to perform in front of ecstatic fans at the Sunburn Holi Bash earlier this year.  

Popular artist Nucleya performed at the Sunburn Arena Tota Myna Album Launch in 2018 which saw thousands of fans throng the shows across Mumbai, Bengaluru, Guwahati, Chennai, Jaipur and Kochi. The whirlwind six city album launch tour was touted the biggest-ever tour made by an independent artist in India and the number of fans attending every show endorsed the same.

Music Artist, DJ & Producer Teri Miko said, “December is that month of the year when everyone is out to celebrate. Considering our current situation this is a brilliant initiative by Sunburn Festival to bring NYE to every house in the country and beyond. I have made a very special set for you and I really wish we could have celebrated together on this day. Nevertheless this is going to be an unforgettable experience created by Sunburn Festival with all your favourite artists bringing in a hopeful 2021.”

Sandeep Sangwan, Managing Director, Castrol India Limited said, “Since its inception, Castrol has always come up with unique ways to anticipate and stay ahead of ever-evolving consumer preferences through advanced technologies.
