Panaji: The annual dance and music festival 'Sunburn' will no longer be held at the regular Candolim beach from this year. The event is known to attract a lot of tourists to Goa every year, but the tourism department wants to change the venue because of the inconvenience caused around the beach during the festival.

The locals have also complained about the chaos created during the musical extravaganza. During the event, an estimated 30,000 people throng the venue every day.

The festival organisers will have to scout for alternate venue due to traffic and other issues at Candolim beach, state tourism minister Dilip Parulekar told PTI. "The ministry will not allow the festival at Candolim beach. But, we want the festival for sure as it attracts more tourists and helps state generate revenue," Parulekar said.

'Sunburn Goa' will be held from December 27 to 29. Though the music festival is facing a tough time in its conceived state, there are no hitches in the newer places where it has expanded since the last two years.

Shailendra Singh, joint managing director of Percept Private Limited which organises the event, told PTI that the festival will be held in Goa in a manner the state tourism department feels appropriate. "We will follow code of conduct as 'Sunburn Goa' is an event of Goa, by Goa and for Goa," he said.

Percept Private Limited began the EDM (electronic dance and music) festival in the beach state in 2007. 'Sunburn Noida' will be held on October 6, 'Sunburn Mumbai' on November 15-16 and for the first time, the South Indian city of Bangalore will have the festival on November 16-17, Singh said. "The festivals at Noida, Bangalore and Mumbai will be at par with Goa," he added.
