The year 2013 has seen lot of ups and downs when it comes to electronic music scene in India. Some of them were because of “Purely Business” reasons and others’ “Ego” however, amidst all this, we could see the general awareness and love for EDM growing in India. It is no longer restricted to southern cities of the country where it all started back in late 90’s. Today, artists like Above&Beyond, Swedish House Mafia, Axwell, Tiesto, Armin Van Burren…have become household names of young India.
The year started off with rescheduled tour of Swedish House Mafia in Mumbai and a surprise edition of Bangalore. And throughout the year, we saw big names of electronic music flying down to India. Armin, Alesso, Kaskade, Zedd, Mat Zo, Guy J, Jody Wisternoff, Hardwell, Steve Aoki, Porter Robinson, Dash Berlin, Nervo, Rank1, Paul Van Dyke, Fedde Le Grande, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Seven Lions, recently concluded an amazing tour by Above&Beyond and the list is never ending and they are coming back again.
We raved on every opportunity given to us. It is always heartwarming to see smiling faces everywhere whether it’s a club or an arena, there is so much love and respect for each of these artists. It is because of events like this that has brought us together to celebrate life and music like a family.
Fast forward to the year end and it’s December again and Goa has has been transformed into one big hub for electronic music lovers. Yes, we are talking about Sunburn and a new born baby, Supersonic. If you look at the line up for these two events, you will know why we said Goa will be buzzing. Both are scheduled to last for almost a week, you are going to see Goa in a completely different colour, this time around.
We would like to wish Nikhil Chinapa and his crew all the best for the first ever, Vh1SuperSonic. Nikhil has done this before and we know he can do it this time as well. We hope 2014 will give us more opportunities to celebrate.
See you on the sands of Goa!!!
Peace. Love. Unity. Respect.
