Goa to have its own Sunburn kind of festival with different flavour: Rohan Khaunte


Panaji: Goa government is contemplating the possibility of having its own festival on lines with ‘Sunburn’ but with different flavour, State Tourism Minister Rohan Khaunte told reporters.

Talking to reporters on Tuesday, Khaunte said that the State government is yet to give any permission for the organizers of Sunburn EDM festival. When pointed out that the organizers have already announced the festival, Khaunte said that Sunburn cannot take Goa government for granted.

“As Goa government this year we are trying to create our own festival . If we are able to create a festival in December at the same time, which will be having a different flavour on the same lines, then why not,” he commented.

Khaunte said that if Sunburn has put on social media announcing the festival, he should understand that he needs permission from the Goa government. “Everytime, he cannot take the Goa government for granted. We welcome such types of things but not by taking the government for granted,” the minister said.

Khaunte said that the Goa government is visualizing its own festival during that time. “If we have our own festival, then Sunburn may not find the space,” he said.


The tourism minister said that the government is working on having a week-long festival from December 26 till December 31. “We need to see how we can do it. If Goa can create its own IP for Goa, then why not,” he commented.
