Time Out 72 Hours Sunburn
Conceptualized and produced by Waterlemon Events LLP and Sudarshan Entertainment World, the first edition of Time Out 72 is making headlines ever since its announcement, sometimes for its impeccable lineup and the other times for the sheer fact how the newly announced IP from its debut edition itself is ready to challenge the established music festival properties like Sunburn.
In this exclusive feature, we at EVENTFAQS take a low-down on the latest updates on the property and speak to property custodians on clashing with Sunburn, expectations from the property and more.
Collaboration with Don’t Let Daddy Know
With the collaboration with DLDK, it is the first time in the history of music festivals in India when there is a global dance music giant lending its name to a homegrown music festival brand for its debut showcase.
After debuting in India last year, the frenzy of Don’t Let Daddy Know will return to India at Time Out 72 at Vagator Goa from September 27-29, 2017. It is believed that this stage is set to feature many big names apart from Martin Garrix catering to cosmic mash of electronic dance music genres including trap, dubstep, drum n bass, hardstyle, house, tech house, deep house, electro, psy-trance and electronica.
Festival goers can expect to witness a stage unlike any other as DLDK gears up to present an intense clubbing experience that will see state of the art experiential zones and phenomenal production, making this an extravaganza of mammoth proportions and maintaining its reputation as a must-attend festival for any dance music enthusiast.
Talking about it Argha Chatterjee, Director, Time Out 72 says, “Time Out 72 aspires to be a category creator in the live IP space and we are only focussing on long term strategic partnerships that will enable a unique experience for the attendees.”
Don’t Let Daddy Know is originally an IP by EA Events that also owns the Kingsland Festival.
Talking about the association, Alex Hes and Essam Jansen, Founders, EA Events state, “We found an ideal collaborator in Time Out 72 that shares our enterprise and hence we will be debuting in the Indian festival industry through collaboration with them.”
India’s First Differently-Abled DJ Joins the lineup at Time Out 72
26-year-old Delhi-based DJ, Varun Khullar aka AAMISH Underground, who is India’s first and the world’s second, differently-abled DJ will be officially opening the music festival with his immersive set laden with house music undertones. After he met with a fatal road accident in Manali in 2014, he got certified as an Electronic Music DJ/Producer from ILM Academy, Gurgaon and Point-Blank Music School, London a year later and went on to pursue his dream by becoming a resident DJ at popular nightclub Kitty Su. Taking his inspiration from Sir Paul Johnson, an American DJ on a wheelchair and music as his source of inspiration, he has broken all stereotypes by being one of the few DJs who play on a wheelchair.
Vaishal Shah, Founder, Time Out 72 states, “Our festival operates from the core belief of purpose and passion and we are very happy to welcome Varun on board. We will ensure that he will get the same respect as other DJs and will play in front of an audience that won’t judge him basis his disability, but on the basis of his expertise.
AAMISH Underground who is wheelchair-bound from a spinal cord injury states, “Deejaying is the only passion I live for. This is the first time I’m performing at a music festival and I’m very happy that finally there is a music festival in the country unlike other commercial players, who is considering people like me instead of chasing only established talent.”
Talking Competition with Sunburn
While it is not fair to compare a new IP that is set to debut in the Indian market with a global music festival giant like Sunburn, but the fact that Time Out 72 is scheduled to take place around the same dates as Sunburn and also that it will take place at Vagator, Goa which is the same venue that has hosted multiple editions of Sunburn says a lot.
Talking exclusively to EVENTFAQS Media, Argha Chatterjee, Director, Time Out 72 remarks, “We don’t consider Sunburn or any other festival as a competition. We wanted to host a festival this year in Goa and these are the dates we secured from the government and we will be doing everything possible to deliver a speculator inaugural year. We have a team of experts like Aayush Bansal, Ninad Shah, Rodney Barnes, Param Dhanoa, Rahul Merchant, Khantil Mehta, Bijoy Patel and Jashoda Madhavji who are associated with the festival and who will be adding great value to the property with their expertise and experience.”
When question about the association with EA Events and DLDK, Chatterjee replied, “As a festival in its debut edition our aspiration was to give audiences a unique proposition at the festival and also position ourselves as a category creator within the existing market. We wanted to integrate a global brand in our first year and found the ideal collaborator in EA Events. Expect the world's biggest party in Goa with a dedicated focus on outstanding production values.”
