The first day of the 2012 edition of the Sunburn Festival in Goa saw us at first wandering about the festival grounds checking out the various things on offer such as food stalls, various fun and games in booths from Absolut, Mini Cooper, Pioneer and Tuborg along with a flea market and lots of other things. The actual festival came out of the starting blocks with a relentless afternoon set of electro from Irish outfit The Japanese Popstars on one of the main stages. The duo pummeled the audience who loved every minute of it. Meanwhile on one of the smaller stages Indian dj Vinayak A smoothed things out a with a groovy and progressive house with a hint of disco set. As nightfall descended on the massive and beautifully beach located festival grounds, London dj/producer Avalon kept things pumping with a trancey set that made the crowd dance themselves into a frenzy, on the opposing main stage Mumbai dj Nawed Khan immersed the crowd with a magnificent set of pure hit fun that had them on their knees and eating out of his hand. The first night concluded with Dutch dj Sander Van Doorn showing us exactly why he was headlining the evening. All in all, a great first day and we’re looking forward to the two coming festival days.
