The nightlife and DJ scene in India has grown exponentially over the past decade and Percept was the first mover in this space with the launch of Sunburn in 2007. Recently, Superstar brought down leading DJs from the dance music world to perform in India including Prok+Fitch, Moguai, Pete Tong and David Guetta. Even as global interest in India’s burgeoning music and entertainment space has grown, a platform like ‘Superstar’ provides Indian DJs a golden chance to get exposed to some of the best Deejaying talent across the globe as well as offers Indian DJ’s an opportunity to play on the world stage and get exposed to promoters and music labels in different countries.
