Sunburn Goa 2013 : The Crazy dance and house festival

The Sunburn festival for 2013 happened at the Vagator beach in North Goa on 27th,28th and 29th Dec. The festival was bigger than 2012 as there were 7 stages spread all over the arena. Every stage had a different theme and a Ferris wheel added spice to the festive decor. The artist line up was huge with headliners from Afrojack, Marcus schulz and Axwell. All key performances happened on the stage named “Dance temple” which had an Indian goddess in the center.  I covered the festival as whatsthescene photographer. Here is the story in pictures

Finishing the festival with fireworks

The Sunburn festival 2013 was a big hit and I thoroughly enjoyed clicking this dance/trance/house fest. Goa was all pepped up for dancing and partying. The after parties of Sunburn were a different experience altogether. For those who did not see Sunburn in Goa, go there next time.
