Percept Live, creators of Sunburn, in association with the Department of Tourism, Government of Goa, have officially announced the inception of 'Goa Village', a special cultural zone that will be created at the 16th edition of Sunburn Festival Goa, scheduled from 28th to the 30th of December 2022 at Vagator, Goa. This exclusive zone will be dedicated to showcasing and promoting the vibrant art, culture, cuisine and lifestyle of Goa through locally established and upcoming talents.
The promoters took to social media to reveal the big announcement that will not only showcase the diverse elements that constitute the vibrant, rich art, food and culture of the state of Goa but also enable established and upcoming talent residing in Goa to showcase and promote their talent on a globally acclaimed international music platform during the peak tourist season of the state.
Sunburn has joined hands with the Department of Tourism, Government of Goa, to invite all Goans to participate in the creation of the all-new Goa Village. The aim of the endeavour is to showcase to the world the vast, incredible history and culture that defines the essence of Goa. Sunburn has invited both recognised and upcoming talent residing in Goa to co-create the Goa Village by contributing their unique talent to display the distinctive flavours of Goa.
The invitation extends to multiple domains, including DJs, bands and singers, dancers, ancillary performers, variety entertainers, chefs, mixologists, artists and designers to ensure that Goa Village showcases the vast and fascinating history, art and culture integral to the Goan identity.
Said Rohan Khaunte, Minister of Tourism for Goa, “This is a very good initiative from Sunburn, and I am sure the Goa Village at Sunburn will accurately showcase the varied and rich Goan culture to the entire world on such a big international platform. Local Goans need a platform to perform and display their talent. I am sure that visitors to Sunburn will also learn about and enjoy the vast art and culture that Goa has to offer.”
Karan Singh, CEO of Sunburn, says, “Given the close relationship Sunburn has shared with Goa over the past 16 years, the announcement of the Goa Village is our way of paying back and thanking the beautiful destination of Goa and its people for all the love and support they have given us in making Sunburn the global iconic success that it is today. We look forward to working closely with local Goan artists across varied calibres, and towards jointly creating and setting up a one-of-a-kind zone which will showcase the multi-hued culture of the state, also offering local Goan artists an international platform to display their talent to the world. We had promised a never-seen-before bespoke, enhanced experience to all our fans at the festival this year, and the inception of the Goa Village is a step in that direction.”
Budding artists have been invited to mail in their details along with a synopsis and sample of the talent which they wish to showcase at the Goa Village at firstname.lastname@example.org
