Adding to this, Jehan Johar, Founder, Ra Music, said, “We are proud to stand along with Sula and announce this diverse and power packed line-up of amazing bands. This year, instead of focusing on just one headliner, the plan was to have several big names. Over the past few years, we've strived to bring amazing international and Indian talent to the Sula stage, and we continue to stay true to this ethos through the 2016 line-up which is undoubtedly the most unique live music line-up of the year. SulaFest 2016 - here we go!” .

Foot massages, tarot reading, grape stomping, and a variety of other activities is sure to add to that fest-feel. The newly revamped and extended Tasting Room along with the rustic Tasting Cellar is expected to be exciting as always, with special tours and tastings to be given to wine enthusiasts.
