The Live Events industry has been largely shut down since a year, which in turn has impacted the livelihood of tens of thousands of people associated with the Experiential industry. The Sunburn Holi 3-city event is a small attempt by Percept Live to revive the live events industry in a secure manner while ensuring all Covid-19 protocols are strictly maintained for the wellbeing and safety of all guests.

Vini Vici, the Israeli duo, specializing in Psytrance music, and currently ranked 24 in the esteemed global Top 100 DJ Mag list, are renowned for putting on a dramatic foot-tapping electrifying show, with non-stop high octane energy from the very start up to the last second of their sets. Fast becoming one of the most popular music acts in the world, Vini Vici have always managed to rope in some of the biggest crowds out of any electronic act and are the true kings of the Psytrance genre.

Vini Vici states, “Hello to our Indian Good Vibes Tribe. We are extremely excited to come back to India! Can’t wait to see you all soon!”

Karan Singh, Chief Operating Officer, Percept Live says, “The pandemic put a complete pause on live events in India. But with the Government Unlock procedures permitting ground events, we figured it’s time to restart our live shows, and what better than the occasion of Holi – the festival of Spring, Hope, Renewal and Rebirth. Fan Safety is our top most priority, and every Sunburn Holi show will be a Limited Capacity event strictly following all Covid-19 protocols. We are very excited to celebrate one of our all-time favourite festivals with the legendary duo Vini Vici. Their unique compositions along with the performance of a host of talented artists, combined with state-of-the-art technicals, SFX and a bespoke culinary experience will definitely wow the cities of Delhi, Bengaluru and Goa. It’s time to “Live Again”, and most importantly “Live, Love, Dance again.”

Amar Sinha, Chief Operations Officer, Radico Khaitan Ltd says, “After a huge success of Sunburn Home festival x Magic Moments, and many other online Sunburn events that we’ve been associating Magic Moments with for the last one year, we are excited to be back on ground with Percept, presenting India’s most celebrated Holi festival – Sunburn Holi weekend featuring Vini Vici. Sunburn is not just a festival that we associate Magic Moments with, but it’s a carnival of life, a way of life for our core TG – the youth. We had been waiting for so long to get back to the Party game, and finally it’s here. Finally we are all getting back to the new normal and things are becoming good for all us. We have always believed in creating unique experiences for our consumers, and our trade, and Sunburn resonates with our thought process, keeping its fans entertained with music and all the possible experiences when it comes to music, making every moment, magical. Looking forward to the first show of the season, this is just the beginning!”
