Sunburn-IV: 27-29 Dec in Goa with 60 acts

MUMBAI: CNN has ranked it 9th amongst the Top 10 festivals of the world, and come end-December, once again, Sunburn  is set to sizzle beautiful Goa with an opulent fourth edition consisting of 60 acts across three musically packed days from the 27th to the 29th of December.

Sunburn IV – the festival created by Nikhil Chinappa and championed by Percept to its current pre-eminence -- is poised to bring the best DJs from the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) scene. To start with, Ferry Corsten consistently ranked in the TOP 10 DJs of the world, Axwell, famous worldwide as a solo artist and a member of the Swedish House Mafia, and Brian Transeau a.k.a BT -   considered by many to be the Godfather of Global Electronica, are among the best who will be in action  Richard Durand, who this year has taken over the reign of the epic "In Search Of Sunrise" compilations from Tiesto, Pete Gooding- one of the top British DJs and Producers, Sultan / Ned Shepard, Aly & Fila, Funkagenda, Pearl, Jalebee Cartel, Ma Faiza, Protoculture (live), Xerox & Illumination (live) and B.R.E.E.D.,  to name a few, are the other stars who will be seen in action.

Shailendra Singh, Joint MD - Percept Ltd., believes Sunburn 2010 will be an unforgettable, electrifying experience. The response we have received from the Indian audiences over the past three years in Goa has been amazing and proves this genre of electronic music has been catching on at a rapid pace across India. Sunburn 2010 will feature some of the best global talent,... he says.

Festival Director, Sunburn and Music maverick Nikhil Chinapa  believs Sunburn has a life unto itself that extends far beyond the music that's played there, or the three days of the festival in Goa. For some of us,... says Chinappa, getting Sunburnt is slowly evolving from merely being in Goa... to a philosophy and a way of life. I for one can't imagine December without it....

Sunburn also continues in its mission to nurture emerging talent in India - this year focusing on music producers. These are the people who make the music, which DJs play  Sunburn Goa 2010 has created a brand new Sunburn Anthem & Video Contest. The contestants will be given original parts of the track of a renowned International Artist, which they will need to remix into an original super-fresh composition. All entries will go through a rigorous short-listing process via an established jury of the DJ world, comprising of Nadia Ali herself, along with Sultan, B.R.E.E.D., Nikhil Chinapa, BLOT, Kurnal Rawat & Elsie Nanji.

The winner will be awarded the opportunity to savor their moment of glory on the Sunburn Main Stage. Not just that, the winning track will also be featured on the Sunburn Anthem compilation along with acclaimed international & domestic artists; the runners-up too will have their mixes featured on the Sunburn Anthem compilation.

In its effort to bring forth all the elements of the EDM scene, Sunburn IV will also give a chance to all visual jockeys (VJs) to showcase their talent. All contenders will be given a 60 second B.R.E.E.D. track to create a visual extravaganza on. The winning entry will get the opportunity to be part of Sunburn's New Experimental Stage.
