Pandemic year 2020 has obviously affected many public events, from music festivals to literature festivals, but there might be one event that might give a chance to party people to redeem this year. Creators of Sunburn Festival Goa have announced the 14th edition of the most-awaited fun fiesta. The festival giant Percept Live will present a three-day live event beginning from December 27, 2020 at Vagator, Goa.
Karan Singh, COO at Percept Live, said how Covid-19 has put a pause in life of people globally. With an unprecedented seven months of staying in and staying safe, India has witnessed stringent lockdown measures since March 2020, he said. However, with the unlock procedures starting and specially Unlock 5 permitting ground events, Singh said that they figured it is time to restart lives.
Explaining the safety precautions being taken at the event, Singh said that Sunburn Goa 2020 will be a Limited Capacity, super safe event following global best practices and all applicable guidelines. The festival will allow a limited number of people and will follow social distancing measures, applicable under Government and World Health Organisation Protocols. The limited tickets go live on sale on November 4 at 12 pm IST.
To follow the social distancing measures at the festival, special PODs have been created and designated areas have been marked across the sprawling venue in Vagator. The PODs and Designated Zones will have families or a group of friends socialize with one another only within the confines of their respective areas and no one else outside their area or structure can enter them.
The event organisers have also made Aarogya Setu app mandatory for all guests for scanning to enter into the festival venue. All fans will have to wear face masks throughout the festival, and provisions will be made for regular thermal scanning, hand wash, and sanitizers for guests across the Festival ground in Vagator. With this event, the organisers expect people can "Live Again" and most importantly "Live, Love, Dance again.”
