Tomorrowland, said to be the biggest music festival in the world, is further materializing its plans to come to India. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Belgium-born fest expanded to USA, Brazil and now wants to tap the Indian market.
Rumours were out last month, when Universal Music’s MD (South Asia), Devraj Sanyal, left us hanging - neither confirming nor denying the fest coming to India. There is progress nonetheless, when the fest’s organizers ID&T reportedly approached Goa Tourism Minister, Dilip Parulekar.
Parulekar commented: “Apart from the proposals received from Percept (for Sunburn) and Viacom (for Supersonic) to host musical events in December, we have also received a proposal from one of the most notable global musical festival groups - Tomorrowland.”
Adding further, he said: “The event organisers have approached us and have shown interest to host the event in mid-January but the responsibility for identification of land will have to be borne by the group, since they require 3.5 lakh square metres of land which is difficult to identify.”
We can conclude that the biggest music fest in the world is now just 3.5 lakh sqms ‘away’ from commencing in Goa, India and is coming sooner than we would expect.
The Goa Tourism Minister admitted that the music fest group is looking for a venue in Goa.
