The Sunburn Festival Goa is all set to be held in December, with only fully vaccinated attendees are allowed, which has been announced by the organizers on Sunday.
Last year, the festival was conducted digitally with no presence of fans on the ground. But this year, the festival is going to be a three-day showcase from 28th December to 30th December at Vagator, Goa.
According to Percept Live, the founding organization that is behind the electronic dance music festival has said that Surburn will adhere to the health and safety measures and “all applicable Covid-19 government guidelines”.
The statement said, “Only attendees who have been fully/doubly vaccinated will be permitted to attend the festival. The festival will also be a limited capacity event and new entry and exit protocols will be put into place to ensure safe passage of attendees in and around the venue”.
While the vaccinations are going on full-fledged across the country, the COO of Percept Live named Karan Singh has said that there is a “renewed optimism” for the live event industry.
“While COVID-19 put a pause on life over the past 18 months, we are social beings and it’s finally time to Live, Love, And Dance Again. Sunburn Goa 2021 will be a limited capacity event following global live event best practices and all applicable guidelines.”
Singh further added, “The strict measures put in place will ensure safety for all our fans without taking away from the lively open-air experience of Asia’s biggest music festival. We cannot wait to welcome the Sunburn fans back to Goa”.
The 15th edition of the annual festival themed “#LifeIsCalling”. It will feature over 60 international local artists across three stages. The promoters will be partnering with several popular clubs across India for “Sunburn Echo”, the live stream that will recreate the on-ground festival experience across the country. The statement further said, “Sunburn Home” will also give fans the opportunity to watch the live stream of the on-ground festival from the comfort and safety of their homes.
