Excited about the third edition of Vh1 Supersonic, Jaideep Singh, Senior EVP and Business head - Live Viacom18 said, “Last year was fantastic. We felt so connected with our fans who attended the festival and the bond will only grow stronger this year. Building on last year’s success where approximately 100,000 dance music fans surrendered to the enigma of dance music at Candolim beach, we have been inspired to make this year’s edition of Vh1 Supersonic a much grander affair. Our vision at LIVE Viacom18 is to provide dance music fans with a holistic experiential experience thereby igniting the collective passion for dance music and fulfill the needs of devoted music lovers. The 3rd edition of this festival with its exciting line-up of artists and association with the global music fraternity will be an experience that fans will remember for a long time to come."
