India is now slowly returning to recovery. The restrictions are gradually being lifted, with careful consideration and strict measures in place to maintain India’s control over the virus.
A lot of once normal things are all impossible to do at this point. The biggest examples are live performances and festivals. November to December is the peak festival season, but for obvious reasons almost all festivals have decided to have a virtual festival at home. For example, the NH7 Weekender still managed to secure an outstanding roster of international and national artists for its home festival. But Sunburn doesn’t want to do that.
The festival will still run its public festival in Goa, but with security measures. They will only allow 20% of the usual capacity, have thermal sweeping, sanitation and other measures.
They captioned their post: “We’ve thought a lot about how to make sunburns happen this year. Eventually we came to the conclusion that life has to start over and the show has to go on. We are grateful to have the support of the authorities in this regard. “
They added, “Fan safety is our top priority this year, and for that reason Sunburn Goa 2020 will be a different experience than you are used to. This is a very limited capacity event, operating at 20% of the total festival capacity. We will follow social distancing standards, with each participant having their designated space in front of the main stage. New entry and exit protocols will be in place to ensure your safe passage to the festival. “
While some people were happy with the comeback, a majority of people took to Twitter to criticize the move, saying it was still dangerous and not the right time.
Scroll through some of the reviews:
So we’re going to end 2020 with the biggest joke of the year. Maintain “social distancing” at an EDM festival while partying and mingling and a gathering of 12,000 people will be considered a small number.

I am all for business and it is essential for the economy to progress. Not for ONCE can I accept that # SunburnGoa2020 is more important than the health of our people and our economy. It may be possible that the organizers of a super spreader took action ???? Bollocks.

I repaired the # SunburnGoa2020 poster.
Please use this in the future.

When families celebrate festivals at a distance, ritual trips home are canceled, school and work stay online, weddings are short and small with a very small guest list, # SunburnGoa2020 seems like a totally unnecessary and insulting proposition. What nonsense

Beautiful vibrations in the middle of the pandemic, with a slogan that says “Live Again”?
