Here are some of the tips I would like to share for the Sunburn Goa 2019

No doubt you are enthusiastic about experiencing the Sunburn music festival and have already started making your plans. Hold on! I would like to share a few tips that would ensure a pleasant journey if you are there for the first time.

Book your tickets prior


  • Be clear in what you are booking. There are separate tickets like the single day pass and two days pass. 
  • Book your tickets in advance. The tickets will also be available in the venue, but they are quite costly and limited too. 
  • Make sure you book your tickets in an authorized online source as there are so many fraudulent happening in the name of Sunburn. 
  • There are also VIP passes available, but I would suggest you to mingle and enjoy with the crowd. What is it going to be a party if you don’t mud your shoes?

Never go with empty pockets

  • Never miss to take some along with you as tickets just let you in. You have to pay extra for the food and drinks inside. 
  • Outside food and drinks are strictly prohibited. So drop your ideas if you have any plans for carrying your food inside. You will be thoroughly scanned at the entrance. 
  • You can also purchase food and beverage coupons previously on online portals. It would save you some money.
  • The food is divine here, but quite costly. Also, you might get drinks only from the sponsored brands most of the time. My best advice is to get your tummy full in the happy hour.

Carry the essentials

  • You must carry a valid ID proof with you as it is used for verification at the entrance. 
  • It is wise to bring your sunglasses as the sun during the day is a bit harsh and also it is better to apply some sunscreen on your skin. 
  • Ladies, try to keep some basic cosmetics with you. Probably the lipsticks as it might vanish after a drink. All I say is stay pretty and attractive as it is the Sunburn Goa!

Comfortable is the Style

  • Wear convenient clothes. Do not wear heavy accessories as you have to stay up dancing late at night. 
  • Wear cozy shoes so that you can roam all day and take part in all the activities. Girls can avoid heels.
  • Carry fanny bags as they are easier and you would not feel like carrying one.

Hit the Sunburn with your gang


  • Remember the Sunburn music festival is one of the best happenings that you cannot enjoy all alone. Do not get lost among the thousands. 
  • Bring your friends all along so that you bang the ground all day long.

  • Do not get too drunk. Just drink to your level and keep your mood to party. 
  • Always have an ID proof with you as it may be there for your rescue at times necessary. 

It is better to have a car and driver backup waiting for you after the party.
