Also, a new music venture called ‘SOLARIS' featuring a range of exquisite underground international and homegrown house and techno acts will feature on two dedicated stages.

Apart from Martin Garrix and The Chainsmokers, Techno innovators, Cuban-American DJ/producer, MaceoPlex and 5 times DJ Award winner Chilean-Swiss DJ Luciano, who will be making their India debut at the festival, will be headlining the stage.

The Sunburn festival was started in 2007 as a three-day music festival in Goa. The venue of the festival's 10th edition in 2016 was shifted to Pune due to several reasons, including pending dues.

The fest, which is being organized in association with Percept Live and Klassique Events Goa, will return to Goa this year, after three editions in Pune.

"Sunburn follows the mantra of 'for the fans, by the fans, of the fans.’ We've evolved from being a music festival to an aspirational global brand with millions of loyalists. We also have the best DJs lined up for the festival and aim to close the year on a high,” Karan Singh, COO, Percept Live, said.

"In addition to introducing an all new underground variant -‘SOLARIS', we will also be raising the bar by integrating the latest global technology and SFX to amplify the overall festival experience. We are sure that fans who attend Sunburn 13 will be talking about it for a long time to come," said Singh.
