December is here and it’s time to put those ‘Work Hard, Party Harder’ phrases into action. And, what better place than Goa for parties! Although the biggies like Sunburn and Supersonic moved out of Goa this year, it promises not to disappoint you this time. With a few new additions to the Country’s happening music fests, Goa too gets its own.
Here are a few 3-day EDM festivals happening in Goa to end your 2016 on a high note:
1. Satellite Beachside
Satellite is back with its 2nd beach party in Goa and this time, it’s going to be better because of its partnership Anjunadeep. The london based electronic label, Anjunadeep, is officially entering India’s party scenario for the very first time. A 12-hour long session at Satellite Beachside will feature a power-packed line up of Anjunadeep – Jody Wisternoff, YOTTO, Eli & Fur and Dom Donnelly.
Some of the other DJs playing here will include Ash Roy, Nikhil Chinapa, Pearl, Browncoat, Tuhin Mehta and Arjun Vagale. With so many Deep House & trance artists, it looks like the early bird passes have already been hunted down by the hardcore EDM lovers. Go on and grab the Phase-1 tickets right away before it’s too late.
Where: Waters Beach Lounge and Grill, Vagator
When: December 28, 29 & 30 (29th being a 12hr party by Anjunadeep)

2. Wonderwall Festival
Wonderwall, a Nikhil Chinapa concept, is a new boutique beach festival all set to hit the stunning shores of Ashwem. The event will retain Goa’s natural beauty as its backdrop with very less alterations to its surroundings. Their point is to drive the crowd crazy with some amazing beats rather than LED lights and fireworks. American producer King Arthur will be kicking the fest off with his gig on 28th.
Other than him, Norman Doray, Bangalore-favourite Rohit Barker, Amsterdam-duo Cubicolor, Roger Sanchez, Dom Donnelly will also be seen taking over the console in the following days. A back to back set by Anjunadeep duo, Yotto and Jody Wisternoff will be the special highlight.
Where: Sunset Ashram, Ashwem Beach
When: December 28, 29 & 30

Located at Anjuna Cliff with Party floors on 3 levels, Club Nyex is easily one of the best nightlife places in Goa. Sway to some fresh and experimental tunes by local as well as international DJs at the 3-day long Goa Sunrise Festival organised by Nyex. With some famous names like Candice Redding, Julia Bliss and Sartek ready to set the stage on fire, each night will be a memory to remember. It’s also having a special new year’s eve bash as a continuum to this festival.
