What to Expect at The Sunburn Klassique Happening in Goa
22 February, 2019

Sunburn, Asia’s biggest electronic dance festival, is back this weekend! After a three-year break, it’s finally happening in Goa again; the land where it all began. For a weekend of pulsating EDM and big-room house, be at Vagator Beach from February 23 – 24. However, this time it’s being called the Sunburn Klassique.

This year, we have yet another promising line-up, both from the international and national circuit. EDM, techno and house music fans are in for the big treat because big names including Markus Schulz, Art Department, KSHMR and Claptone are going to be a part of the scene. The festival will have 4 stages –  Klassique, Techno Kraft, Psychedelic Cirkus, and Vinyl Ambulance, where around 40 artists will be performing live in two days.
Since its inception back in 2007, the festival has become one of the world’s most talked about electronic music festivals alongside the likes of Tomorrowland and Ultra. And with it’s 12th edition happening this weekend, there’s no doubt it’s going to be a memorable experience.
Claptone is headlining the event; making his India debut and bringing his golden beaked mask to the country for the first time. The Midival Punditz – the Delhi boys who pioneered electronic music in India – performing a DJ set with Nathulal Solanki, Rajasthan’s master percussionist is also something to watch out for.
Other than the music, there’s going to be a flea market, and loads of food and drinks as well. Other artists to watch out for are 18 East,  Ankytrixx, Sultan + Shepard, Alle Farben, Arjun Vagale, Akshay Mathker, Alexander Smith, Akshit Shetty, Designer Hippies, Discobar, Janux, Liquid Soul, Fintushami and Iggy x Dennis among many, many others.
This year they had a hard time getting a go-ahead from the government, but Sunburn Klassique is finally happening. Tickets are priced at Rs 2,000 for one day, Rs 5,000 for a regular two-day festival pass and Rs 14,000 for a VIP couple pass.
