VH1 SUPERSONIC FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES PHASE 1 LINE UP
In December 2013, one company put their heads together to do the unimaginable; to devise and execute a large-scale electronic music festival – bringing together music lovers from every continent, across all walks of life – in just three short weeks. From creation to conception, Vh1 Supersonic achieved what for many takes years of planning and production, in just 21 days. Thousands of music-lovers saw their dreams realized on Goa’s iconic shores and now, on the 27, 28, 29 and 30 December 2014, Vh1 Supersonic are inviting fans to join together once again for four sun-drenched days of pure hedonism and the biggest end of year party India has to offer.
A phenomenal and unprecedented success story unlike any other – and with all odds stacked against them – Vh1 Supersonic saw a staggering 60,000 festival-goers flock to Goa’s exquisite Candolim beach location for its inaugural event, making history and marking the beginning of what promises to be the jewel in the crown of Asia’s festival calendar for many years to come.
With just three months to go, India’s Vh1 Supersonic festival has revealed its Phase 1 Line Up, featuring an impressive and diverse array of DJ talent from around the world. Kicking off the host of international stars set to perform on Candolim beach this December will be Paul van Dyk, The Chainsmokers, Dillon Francis and Stanton Warriors with many more to be announced over the coming months.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential names and greatest assets to India’s rapidly expanding electronic music scene, Vh1 Supersonic’s festival director Nikhil Chinapa has shared his inimitable knowledge and wealth of experience to help create one of the greatest live events in Asia’s history.
Talking about Goa’s only beach festival, Jaideep Singh, Snr Vice President & Business Head, Integrated Network Solutions said, ‘For me, VH1 Supersonic is more than just a music festival. It celebrates the essence of celebrating music together beyond language. When we initiated the planning for this year, we were ruthlessly honest about what went right and what went wrong last year. What we realized is that Indian audiences are yearning for an authentic music festival experience and our positioning as a festival full of vibe fits the bill perfectly. To add to this vibe, we will be featuring an array of leading international performers as well as a strong presence of Indian talent across the festival. With all of this coming together on the pristine beaches of Candolim, Goa, we are sure that the Indian festival goer is in for a treat come December.’
Set against an exotic landscape of crystal waters, white shores and stunning stage designs, Vh1 Supersonic is an invitation for all to relax and unwind; a sanctuary to explore and connect with artists across the entire spectrum of electronic music, whilst also offering a diverse array of unparalleled immersive experiences for all to enjoy. Party-goers can kick back in one of the numerous chill out zones, lose themselves in a novel from the on site library, weave through the larger than life art installations, snap up a bargain at one of the stalls in the hippy market, join in the beach sports and stay active with Zumba lessons in the fitness corner, or indulge in some of the finest cuisine that India has to offer. With the safety and well-being of each and every attendee top priority for the organizers, everyone can rest assured they are in the safest of hands as they focus their energies on enjoying their own personal piece of paradise.
Far from being just an annual event, Vh1 Supersonic (conceptualized by LIVE Viacom18) will also offer a yearlong set of experiences through its multiple brand extensions. Vh1 Supersonic 101 (campus gigs), Vh1 Supersonic Club Nights & Vh1 Supersonic Arcades (outdoor arena events) will take fans far beyond the main festival and enable them to engage with some of the world’s most popular DJs in their home towns on an on-going basis. Utilizing their numerous platforms across the live music and entertainment sector, LIVE Viacom18 is the only company with the vision to reach such an incredible number of consumers, ignite the collective passion for electronic music and target the needs of devoted music lovers that are currently not being met in the current Indian music festival market.
