The gig marks the return of Major Lazer post the Covid-19 crisis. The American group has forged a special bond with India through their several performances in India in the past, and by capturing various moods of the country through their work. They last performed in India in 2016.

“India is a special place to us, so we are thrilled to be back at Vh1 Supersonic this year with some amazing sets planned. With each tour that we do in India, it’s always exciting to connect with more and more people and watch our fan base grow,” Major Lazer shared.

Talking about performing at the festival, King says, “I’m thrilled to bring my energy and music to such an iconic stage. The festival has been an iconic one in the Indian music festival circuit, and I can’t wait to finally be a part of it and share this unforgettable moment with my fans. I can’t wait to create some special memories with everyone out there… It’s going to be a whole lot of fun.”

The edition has a mix of international as well as homegrown artists. The electronic music festival is curated by DJ Nikhil Chinapa.

The other artists expected to perform at the event include names such as Adam Beyer, Yotto, Denis Horvat, Hamdi, Patrice Bäumel, The Midnight, Arjun Vagale, Browncoat, Kohra, Taba Chake and The Yellow Diary. Legends like 10,000 Lions, Bass Maya, Chromaderma, D2, Dr. Sel, Earl Gateshead, Ital Soup, Major C, NZ Selector, Rasta Yuga, Rudy Roots and Sanyas-I.

“We’re back, as promised. And we’re never leaving you again. As we build towards our 10th edition next year, we open our gates again to welcome back friends and fans for our 9th edition in 2024,” Chinapa says.

Last year, the multi-genre festival returned after two years since the coronavirus pandemic. It was headlined by Rockabye fame singer Anne-Marie, Nigerian singer-songwriter Chukwuka Ekweani, who goes by the stage name as CKay, known for Love Nwantiti, Prateek Kuhad, rapper French Montana, Farhan Akhtar, Oaff and Savera, and Bob Moses.
