Long weekends are always a treat and this one has multiple things lined up to be explored. One of the things worth looking forward to is, Sunburn Daman! With names like Dannic, Anish Sood and Wolf Pack in the lineup, EDM fans across the country will be flooding to the island for an early treat. Here's our take on why it is the best news ever.
Destination Daman: If Goa is the party paradise of the country, Daman is one of those tucked away, unexplored destinations that would give an electronic dance-music gig a whole new atmosphere. It’s not every day you would get to experience of Asia’s biggest music festivals against the backdrop of pristine beaches and serene sunsets, just three hours away from Mumbai city. It not just becomes the perfect weekend getaway, but you also get to listen to some of the coolest electronic acts from world over. This is the first time in the history of Sunburn that it’s all set to debut in Daman and for fans of the festival there couldn’t be a better start to the EDM season. Setting the backdrop for some foot-thumping gigs are vibrant heritage and cultural sights adding that perfect element of history and music to your weekend.
Artist mania: If you’re looking to warm up for Sunburn’s big Goa gig in December, Daman is where you should head. The festival boasts of some brilliant artists from across the world, with one of its main attractions being Dutch artists Sick Individuals who headline the festival. Being touted as dance music’s powerhouse duo, both Jim and Ray have been taking the world of EDM by storm with singles that have stayed on top of the charts for months and will now be taking Sunburn by storm at the pool party in Silvassa Khanvel Resort. Apart from Sick Individuals, the festival has an eclectic line up including Wolfpack, Anish Sood, B.R.E.E.D and Sound Avatar to pick from.
Pick your poison: EDM aficionados can vouch for the fact that any dance music gig is practically incomplete without their favourite drink to go. Daman, which is situated off the state of Gujarat (a non-alcoholic state) is clearly an unconventional choice for a party of this nature. But the good news is it’s among the only places around the state where one can get their hands on some liquor, legally. So pick your poison, because if you thought you will have only the music to get high on, Sunburn assures you that and a lot more.
Passes for less: The festival organisers are giving away passes for the whole weekend for as less as Rs.2000 as long as you jump onto their website and register as soon as possible. Getting to the venue has been made easy too as the festival has tied up with cab companies who will take total care of your travel to Silvassa and back at discounted rates. You can also choose to travel by luxury busses or car pool with your friends to save up on travelling. Apart from Khanvel resort which is the prime location for the festival, you can pick overnight stay options at hotels or home stays from as less as Rs.300 per night. While the travel, food and stay options in Goa shoot up to exorbitant rates during the festival in December, Daman, an unexplored space for a music festival becomes a lot more affordable for younger, college crowds.
Crowd control: Though the crowds at most EDM gigs tend to go out of control, we hear that Sunburn Daman will definitely give you a lot more space and time to move around from stage to stage. The festival is most definitely expecting a lot of music fanatics from Mumbai, the majestic beaches of Daman are apparently equipped to host crowds in a way that one feels at home without having to deal with an overcrowded space. We also hear that the festival has special offers and music memorabilia for those who have been regulars at Sunburn.
