Story so far
Despite the terrifying 2008 Mumbai attacks, Sunburn marked its second innings, the very next month of the incident. With the same spirit and enthusiasm, the festival was held on the Candolim beach. In the theme of Electric circus, the festival lived up to its expectations. Performances of DJ Simon Dunmore, Shapeshifters and Gareth Emery enlightened the crowd with trance and house music.

Change in venue happened in the seventh edition of the Sunburn in the year 2013 when the organizers decided to conduct the festival at Vagator beach in Goa. This did not affect the appeal of the Sunburn at all and instead, the festival got packed with 120 artists running a marathon of music.
Stunned by the huge difference Sunburn created since its inception in 2007, the organizers decided to launch the city edition in the summer of 2012. This started from Mumbai and later on made its way to Noida in Delhi and Colombo in Sri Lanka by October 2012.
Sunburn-a magical carnival
A music festival of such potential feels incomplete without the delicious cuisines and a hell lot of drinks. This desperate need has been very well taken care of in the Sunburn, as the festival is flooded by various stalls offering sumptuous food and pitchers of Booze. Delicious Goan cuisines with alcoholic beverages in the musical atmosphere of Sunburn tempts the people to stay here forever.
The magnetism of the Sunburn festival is such that most of the tourists set their camps on the site. This is an amazing way to live down the festival and savor its memories for the next year.
