Asia’s largest dance music festival is heading to Angamaly
A few months ago, we predicted that India’s music festival circuit will get rerouted. Now, major players including the Sunburn Festival are moving away from metropolitan spaces and have begun eyeing Tier II and Tier III cities across the country to host regular events at open-air venues and colleges. This weekend, the dance music mega-promoter has tied up with local artiste Zerik and is flying in Italian electro house DJ Olly Esse to perform alongside homegrown act Progressive Brothers at Sunburn: Reload, Angamaly!
“Dance music has definitely picked up big time in India. The scene has outgrown big-city clubs and is now venturing to smaller towns,” explains Sunny Sharma, one-half of the Delhi-based Progressive Brothers. “We strongly believe all the cities, big or small, are equally important to build the dance music scene from the ground up,” he adds.
Game of Thrones fans in Angamally are also in for a treat at the gig, as the ‘Prog Bros’ are sure to drop their brand-new bootleg of the show’s intro-soundtrack originally composed by Ramin Djawadi.“We’re all about encouraging people to dig deeper and listen to all kind of music, rather than sticking to just mainstream sound. One should never stop exploring,” concludes Sunny, who’ll be headlining the party alongside Karan Bhalla.
Today at Adlux Convention Centre.
