After almost a decade of being hosted in one of India’s most loved holiday destinations, Goa, the year 2016 saw it being held in the quaint yet lively city of Pune! Music lovers from all over came together at the 30 acres of space at Sunburn Hills located in Kesnand. The event was organised for four days from 28th Dec to 31st Dec 2016, giving music-lovers a chance to spend new years eve amid their favourite bands and music. Not to deny that being its first time in Pune, the event did see a lot of mismanagement. The crowd struggled to trek up to the hill and dodge the long queues to get hold of their bands. However, performances by some great artists managed to make up for the crowd’s discontent.
Trance, progressive, house, electronic, drum&bass, psychedelic, techno, experimental – the event covered all the genres with some amazing artists and stalwarts from the industry. More than 150 artists, 500 hours of music, 5 high octane stages and Smirnoff lounges at different locations along with on-site camping, adventure sports, flea markets, elaborate food options and after parties made it one of biggest, if not best, events organised in the city.
We look forward to more such events organised in Pune by big names of the industry which can help add more element and value to the overall music culture followed in Pune!
