The 1st Annual Sunburn Dance Music Festival Goa 2007, takes place on the 28th and 29th of Dec, off the beautiful and serene Candolim Beach amongst the Palm trees in Goa, India.
Headlining this event are some of the best DJ's from across the world and India representing a ton of genre's across the EDM spectrum.
Goa is the birth place of the modern rave culture and the birth place of Goa Trance which was the precursor to Psy Trance. Goa is Home to Psychedelia art and culture. Who hasn't heard of the Anjuna Beach, which has been home to some of the best raves in the world for the past 20+ years and has inspired labels such as "Anjuna Beats".
This is the perfect escape to the winter cold with temparatures in Goa at this time of the year hovering between 75F - 80F. There are more than 50 beaches in and around Goa and most of them are yet to be discovered each having its own unique color of sand. Goa is known for its hospitality and food. You get all kinds of food from across the world. The food served in the beach shacks and on the sands are the best.
Food and Drinks are very cheap. A bottle of beer during peak season (December) will cost you slightly more than a Dollar.
