In India, they take great pride in the sentiment that ‘everything is possible’. Exemplifying this concept, Sunburn have announced the second phase of artists confirmed for their colossal 2014 festival, which will take place at Vagator Beach, Goa from27th – 29th December. In addition to the hard-hitting dance music acts announced in their first phase, Sunburn dig even deeper to celebrate the full spectrum of electronic music with their second batch of artists, with Jamie Jones, Damian Lazarus, Oliver Dollar and Francesca Lombardo just a selection of the newly confirmed acts Sunburn are set to welcome to Goa.
Heading up the festival’s latest phase is Crosstown Rebels head Damian Lazarus, a driving force behind the second-wave house movement that now dominates dancefloors across Europe and USA. Damian is respected as much for his unrivalled A&R and encyclopedic knowledge of music as he is for his innovative and creative productions. Having debuted his collaborative artist project The Ancient Moons earlier this year, Lazarus’ visionary approach to production perfectly embodies the spirit of Goa and will serve as an ideal soundtrack for those in pursuit of ultimate escapism.
Another equally special guest is Hot Creations founder Jamie Jones, whose deeper brand of techno has been central to the genre’s recent explosion. Rounding off an incredible 2014 that’s seen his Paradise residency remain one of the most in demand parties of the Ibiza season, Jamie’s knack for throwing the perfect party is second to none and his visit to India is already shaping up to be unmissable. Also joining the ranks are Crosstown Rebel star Francesco Lombardoand Berlin native Oliver Dollar, who will make his Sunburn debut after storming the UK charts this summer with his smash hit ‘Pushing On’.
Psytrance producer Avalon is set to appear alongside long-time collaborator and fellow psytrancer Sonic Species. Adding a feminine touch to proceedings, mystical Australian born songstress Emma Hewitt will make her debut this year.
At the bass-heavy end of the spectrum, Dutch producer Dannic is set to explore his trance repertoire to the fullest. Sunburn has also added Dutch superstar Eelke Kleijn – a producer who has been going from strength to strength since his eclectic debut album ‘Untold Stories’ was released back in 2010.
Elsewhere, local artist Diatonik,a DJ who has gained an excellent reputation since starting to play further afield last year, is set to bring his signature blend of house and techno to proceedings, whilst rounding off the phase two line-up, tastemaker DJ and world-touring artist Jonty Scrufff will make his Goa bow this year.
Witnessing crowds of over 160,000 people, Sunburn is Asia’s biggest dance music festival and has been an integral part of India’s growing association with electronic music over the last eight years. With its culture deep-rooted in Goa Trance, Sunburn has consistently delivered some of the biggest names in dance music, welcoming the likes of Hardwell, David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia and Tiësto to the island in recent years. Having already announced Knife Party, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Sander Van Doorn, Sasha and many more for its 2014 edition, their phase two line up only adds to the excitement already surrounding the festival.
With less than two months to go, Sunburn Goa 2014 promises to be an unmissable date in this year’s festival calendar. As the demand for tickets continues to grow, keep an eye out for the release of their phase 3 line-up over the next few weeks.
