Vh1, the English music channel from Viacom18, has announced the fifth edition of its annual musical property Vh1 Supersonicâ€“one of the biggest multi-genre music festivals in India. The three-day festival, to be held in February 2018, will not only see some of the biggest names from the world of dance music but will also feature a brand new live stage featuring rock music legends.
In the 2018 edition of the festival, Vh1 Supersonic gets ready to introduce rock music in its multi-genre format with the announcement of the third headliner which will be the American Rock Legend â€“ Incubus. The festival also brings in renowned American music producer and worldâ€™s highest-paid DJs listed by Forbeâ€™s annual ranking, Marshmello.
Vh1 Supersonic also features a houseful festival arena with the specially curated artist line-up by the lord of techno ensemble The Awakenings. India will also get to party to the enchanting tunes of American DJ and record producer Dillon Francis, all thanks to Vh1 Supersonic.
Saugato Bhowmik, Business Head, Integrated Network Solution and Consumer Products, said, â€śOver the years we have realised that our audience is inclined towards diverse musical genres. Hence it has remained a continuous vision to bring in variety of artists on our roster. We have been successful in getting some of the biggest names to India to perform at Vh1 Supersonic, which is a coup in itself! We only look forward to continue doing the same.â€ť
Nikhil Chinapa, Festival Curator, Vh1 Supersonic, said, â€śThe diversity of artists in our line-up for our festival's fifth edition is reflective of the many voices at Vh1 Supersonic, who've come together to finalise our programming mix this year. From rock and indie music to future bass and driving techno, our festival embraces many sounds. I do hope that if you roll into our festival to listen to one genre, you will roll out having accidentally discovered a few others â€“ and that your musical landscape would have forever been altered. That, without doubt, would be the most gratifying outcome of our team's work this past year.â€ť
