Sunburn Festival stopped from shining in Goa

The NOC issued to the organizers by the state authorities in Candolim Goa, was cancelled on Sunday by an order of the Mapusa sub-divisional magistrate which cancelled the conditional NOC .

The state authorities had issued the licence to the organizers for the three day festival known as Sunburn 2008 beach festival at Candolim beach, specifying strict conditions including the regulations to monitor sound. The event was closely monitored by state officials.

It seems that the sound of music played by the performers at the festival was beyond the prescribed limits and accordingly the state pollution control board verified the same and confirmed the contraventions.

The authorities therefore visited the venue on Sunday at around 8 pm and issued the cancellation orders to the organizers thereby putting a stop to the three day extravaganza.
