Vh1 Supersonic 2019 to be held on 16,17 Feb in Pune

MUMBAI: The sixth edition of Vh1 Supersonic will be held on 16 and 17 February 2019 at Mahalakshmi Lawns, Pune. The musical event will be headlined by artistes like Live Electronica, Bonobo, and Marshmello.

Viacom18 business head integrated network solutions & consumer products Saugato Bhowmik said, “Vh1 Supersonic has become the annual music pilgrimage for thousands of music fans from across the country and it delights us immensely to evoke the emotion of #Betherebefree for our fans with this marquee music extravaganza.

“I am immensely proud and grateful for the continued faith placed in us by our partners Budweiser, Fastrack and absolutely delighted that American Tourister has joined the family too! The love and encouragement we receive from our fanbase has not only put us firmly on the top spot over the last 2 years but also inspires us to keep going one step better each time. Personally, can’t wait to see Bonobo playing Live and the absolute mega Marshmello.”

Excited about the announcement, Budweiser VP Marketing, South Asia Kartikeya Sharma said, “We have had a very strong partnership with Vh1 Supersonic, over the last 3 seasons. It’s a festival that has grown from being a music platform to one where culture is created & shaped & the consumers they attract is a testament to this evolution. We’re excited to continue and grow this partnership with the introduction of immersive experiences like the BudX stage & the Bud beer garden & are confident that Vh1 Supersonic is the perfect platform for us to connect with India’s youth & deliver world-class experiences.”

The festival curator of Vh1 Supersonic, Nikhil Chinapa said, “We’re covering an incredible amount of musical ground with the artists we’ve invited to our sixth edition. From festival-favourite Marshmello – who’s globally had the most incredible year in 2018, to our piece-de-resistance – Bonobo performing LIVE with an enormous 8-piece ensemble. Lending more firepower to our burgeoning techno scene, the global behemoths of the genre – Awakenings – return to the festival for their fourth year too. Vh1 Supersonic continues to push the boundaries of the ever-expanding soundscape and the team and I couldn’t be prouder of the diverse lineup of artists we’ve put together for 2019! Cubicolor LIVE with their entire band and Tropkillaz – both will make debut appearances in India at our festival in this edition.”
