Picture clowns,stilt walkers,fire dancers,musicians and DJs will all come together for a carnival of sorts this October,as Delhi gets its very own Sunburn Festival. Although the three-day event happens in Goa every year,the Delhi version will be a one-day event organised by Percept to be held at the Unitech Golf Course & Country Club in Noida on October 7.
Details such as the line-up and ticket prices are still not announced,but the organisers are encouraging everyone to wear a tutu,dye your hair orange,or wow us with your ultra-cool neon shorts. Sounds like fun? We must wait and watch.
