Asia is dance music’s final frontier, and while there’s been much talk about the region’s explosive market growth, it’s not altogether fair to act like it’s all so new. Since 2007, Asia’s biggest dance music festivals Sunburn has brought A-list DJs to stages across India for everything from arena concerts to multi-day festivals. The brand launched in Goa and has since expanded exponentially. For the 12th edition, Percept Live presents Sunburn will be hosted at Oxford Golf Resort, Pune second year in a row with more than 70 acts supporting between 29th and 31st of December 2018.
On 31st December 2018, DJ Snake will be usher in 2019. He has always loved his time in India (first, he shot the video of Lean On with Major Laser and then Magenta Riddim) and will return for the 5th time. Activist-DJ sisters Krewella and Parisian producer Mercer will warm up audiences before he ushers in a NYE storm with jaw-dropping stage production.
On 30th December 2018, the flag-bearer of the trance movement, Armin Van Buuren and most streamed artist globally Alan Walker will be headlining the main stage. For Armin Van Buuren, who played his first show in India in 2009, the chance to see India’s music scene mature, has been a highlight since this would be his 6th visit to the sub-continent. Fresh off the success of Tota Myna, India’s electronic mainstay Nucleya will add his desi dubstep touch to the mainstage right before.
On 29th December 2018, the Swedish super duo and 2/3rd of the SHM outfit, Axwell ^ Ingrosso who premiered their kid ink collaboration at the festival way back in 2014 will close the mainstage. Joining them as support acts will be Israeli DJ duo Vini Vici and others.
Other support acts include DIVINE (Gully Gang) David Gravell, Ellie Prohan, KaRavan, Teri Miko, Zephyrtone, Siana Catherine and domestic acts like Progressive Brothers, Omen, Julia Bliss, Madoc and Sartek.
