Goa gears up for a musical summer
What is in store in Goa this summer is nothing less than a musical beach holiday. And who won’t be taken up by the picture of a perfect evening by the beach side, watching the sun set, while renowned musicians transport you to an entirely different world? If one likes to sip the taste of this rare magical holiday experience, be in Goa while it hosts the GoaWire Goa Music Festival. Spread over 52 days, from April 8 to May 30, 2012, the festival will be held at 40 different venues in North and South Goa, rocking and shaking Goa and Goans out of the hot summer sun-induced lethargy.
About 60 DJs from Goa, Mumbai and the rest of the world will perform at this musical gala event. Added attractions include Goan food and culture. “The GoaWire Goa Music Festival will cover and traverse the length and breadth of Goa, from Canacona in South Goa, to Morjim, Ashwem and Arambol in North Goa. The main stops would include the tourist haunts of Anjuna, Vagator, Baga, Calangute, Candolim, Miramar and Panaji in the North and Majorda, Benaulim, Colva, Cavelossim and Palolem in South Goa. It is touted as the biggest music festival ever held in Asia till date,” say the organisers.
The brain-child of Goan DJ Jenny D, the Goa Music Festival is co-ordinated by DJ Frank Franklyn. The music festival will feature different genres, styles and types of music and bring together Jazz, Pop, Rock, Reggae, Retro, Blues and Bollywood musicians under one umbrella.
