High Court Questions Govt’s Last Minute Approval to Sunburn Goa (Klassique)

After a hiatus of over three years, Sunburn – the pioneer of electronic dance music (EDM) festival in the State – made a comeback to Goa last weekend. The Government had given in-principle approval to the organisers at the very last minute to host this electronic dance music event.

The bench headed by Chief Justice Naresh Patil, allowed the main organiser of the event, Percept Live, “to retain the right” to challenge dues amounting to nearly Rs 2 crore, which the parent company owes to the state government in the form of fees and taxes. The order follows a petition filed by Trajano D’Mello, who had demanded that the parent company organising Sunburn Klassique, should pay back dues to the state government, before hosting the EDM event in Goa. Lawyers for Percept Live said that the amount is being challenged by the event management firm in three appellate forums.

High Court has directed concerned state authorities to decide within 6 months about the challenges made by Sunburn Organizer – Percept Live that the amount of about ₹ 2.02 crore pending with Goa government to its sister company ‘Percept D’Mark’ for organizing Lusofonia games can be adjusted against Sunburn dues.
