Bass set to drop in Baga

Oktoberfest is back!

Imagine yourself in Munich, healing Germany sipping a mug of freshly brewed wheat beer while on the side stuffing your gob with a crispy pretzel. Try and simulate the vibe you get listening to the local buzz and watching the crowd having the time of their lives in the mega-party that is Oktoberfest. Now lets add a little twist to the picture. Infuse the above mentioned details with your favourite EDM track as the background score and add a gentle zephyr from the Arabian Sea.

Makes for quite a bass drop, find doesn’t it? Well, symptoms there’s more to it. Its time to give life to your imagination and acquaint you with the fourth edition of Oktoberfest’14 which will be held at Nazri Grounds situated on the coastal stretch of Baga from the 31st of October to the 2nd of November. This three day music extravaganza has previously seen electrifying Electronic Dance Music (EDM) acts by artists flying in from the US, Belgium, Sweden, France, Denmark, Netherlands and of course, from all across this country.

The buzz at the ‘pre-party’which featured Joshua Mellody (better known as ‘Zomboy’), one of the youngest yet most established names producing dubstep, drum& bass, and glitch-hop, hadn’t even faded when the Oktoberfest management announced what we can expect this year:

Alongside loads of exotic international beer, out-of-the-box stalls and non-stop stomp-worthy music, this year’s festival will be headlined by Firebeatz and Marco V from the Netherlands, Gregori Klosman from France, Matisse & Sadko from Russia, Tristan Garner from France, John ‘00’ Fleming from the UK and Arston from Belarus.

So let’s take a sneak peak to what might be in store (or on the dance floor, rather) from these headlining artists:

Firebeatz, a Dutch duo made up of Tim Smulders and Jurre van Doeselaar, has given chart topping hits like “Helicopter” and “Dear New York”. Formed in Amsterdam in 2008, Firebeatz has worked alongside popular acts like Calvin Harris, Tiësto, and Martin Garrix spinning the best of Electro-House, Dutch House and Big Room House samples.

Gregori Klosman, born in Paris, has been huge in the House industry since 2011 with original releases like “Jaws”, “Low Battery”, “Bounce”, “Peacock” and “Kameha” as well as remixes for the likes of Erick Morillo, David Guetta, Lady Gaga and Avicii.

Matisse & Sadko, a Russian house duo consisting of two brothers Aleksandr & Yuriy, have given electrifying hits like “Stars” and “Svenska”.

Oktoberfest Goa is the brainchild of Munna Rukniddin, owner of Bullseye Entertainment, one of the leading event agencies in Goa. “In its fourth edition, Oktoberfest Goa 2014 promises to be bigger and better,” he says, adding: “This year’s artist line-up features some of the best music acts from across Europe and India. Our production too boasts of top-of-the-line creative setups. With Oktoberfest Goa being the first festival of the season it gives us great pride in presenting a home-grown festival and  we  are gearing up to treat Goa to a wonderful musical experience.”
