Sad news for music lovers
In a bid to keep control over the COVID cases in the state, the administration has decided to refuse the proposal of holding a music festival this year. In a press conference held today, the Chief Minister of the coastal state said, "We have not given permission to Sunburn to hold the festival this year. I have already passed the file stating this."
Notably, Asia's biggest music festival premiering the best of Electric Dance Music (EDM) sees music lovers from all across the globe, every year.
