Karan Singh, CEO, Sunburn states, “Sunburn introduced the concept of Dance Music to India and we are a brand that has been given birth locally and we have now gone global. A true global brand always happens when you foremost follow the mantra of “for the fans”, by the fans, of the fans. Over the last 9 years we’ve evolved from being a music festival to an aspirational brand with millions of loyalists. Our move to Maharashtra is a part of that evolution. Our fans have been our first priority and Sunburn hills turned out to be the perfect destination to give our fans a larger than life experience in the 10th edition of Sunburn. We started our season with a bang bringing down the top ranked Djs and hope to really close the year on a high with Sunburn 10. We are thankful to the tourism of Maharashtra for extending their help in making the move possible. A massive festival like Sunburn takes months of preparations, and we’re going in all guns blazing to make it big.”
