Reaching the Sunburn Venue
The Sunburn festival is one of the most popular beach parties in India. Tourists from all over the world come to Goa to enjoy the three day musical event. Artists, both known as well as upcoming play their own unique genres which is one of the major reasons for music lovers to visit the festival.
Reaching the venue is slightly cumbersome but by no means difficult. The Sunburn festival takes place at Candolim beach in North Goa. This pristine beach is extremely famous not just for the Sunburn festival, but also for its vast coastline and clear waters.
Transportation is easily available to Candloim via public transport vehicles like buses. Even private taxis will take you to the beach from the airport or other important junctions.
Goa’s Dambolim airport is located at a distance of roughly 45 kms from Candolim beach. Pre paid taxis are available at the airport which would cost you around Rs. 600. Some taxis outside the airport will take you to the location at a cheaper rate, but they are not trustworthy.
If you are already in Goa and planning on an adventure even before you reach the venue, you can hire a scooter for about Rs. 200 a day (Fuel tank fare excluded) and ride to Candolim beach. The beach is not too far away from major tourist hubs.
From Vasco Da Gama, Candolim beach is at a distance of 13 kms east of Candolim, Margao is at a distance of 14 kms southeast and Madgaon is at a distance of 15 kms northwest of Candolim beach. The easiest way to reach the venue is via the NH 17. Locals along the way will show you the path.
For the Sunburn Festival 2011, four different stages have been set up, each one with a set of artists playing in various time slots. The stages are called Butterfly Bar, Castle Stage, Caterpillar Stage and The Rabbit Hole. Artists from all around the world will be part of the enticing lineup this year.
