Sunburn is all set to take Goa's party mood one notch higher and allow people to let their hair down as the year comes to an end.
This year, the event to be held from December 28 to 30 is designed in such a way so as to have the Goan Village, which is a new concept for the first time.
The Goan Village at Sunburn is designed in a space within a 50-metre radius that has a few stalls selling some handicrafts and snacks, a big bar and a small stage that will presumably have some artists from Goa performing.
With finishing touches being given, there were hundreds of labourers, security men and police personnel all around the area with some sniffer dogs also in service.
A giant wheel was being put together in the background and a lot of emphasis was on the various stalls, most advertising alcohol, around the main stage.
“Goa has a vast repertoire of local talent who need the right exposure, and the dedicated stage will create that opportunity alongside celebrated global artists," read a press note which was silent on which Goan artists will be performing at the event.
From amongst the stalls selling food presumed to be Goan, the stall selling omelettes was closest to what Goans would fill comfortable standing around and waiting to devour.
Work was going around the main stage with different alcohol companies setting up their stalls and heavy cranes used to finish work on the main stage. Apart from the main stage and the stage at the Goan Village, labourers were seen giving finishing touches to another stage.
No mobile toilets could be seen in the enclosed areas or anywhere near the Goan village. Bins were being placed around during an evening visit to the site.
