PRESS RELEASE – What happens when you combine the international Holi festival, music, good food, the sun rising in the back-ground, cool chicks, color and the only tequila flavoured beer, Desperados? The answer: sheer pandemonium and exhilarating fun. And yeah some extra colour to life aren’t bad either.
So that’s the idea behind the first ever “Live n Color” to be held on Friday, August 1 from 12 am to 10am at the Pigeon Island National Landmark. The event’s concept is based on “The Holi Festival” of Colours.
Every year the people in India welcome spring in a very special way. “Holi” is the Festival of Colours; one of the most important cultural celebrations of the country. The festival celebrates the triumph of good over evil and promotes bridging social gaps and restoring social relationships.
This is a very colourful festival where people jump and dance in unity throwing up colourful powder, Gulaal, into the sky and on each other. During this, differences between religion, origins and castes become invisible as all patrons are united in celebration and coated in the same palette of vibrant colour. For a few hours, everyone is equal and positivity and good energy flows; the effervescent colours of life and diversity are respected and celebrated.
So this is the concept. Interested yet? Here’s more: The event is a merging of Indian tradition fused with the Caribbean spirit of Carnival and Emancipation, where vibrant colours meet vibrant spirits. And so we invite you to celebrate in a big splash of colours, enjoy summer, whine to the riddim and drink all you can.
Your clothing is your canvas; revellers must wear white to experience the complete invasion of colour. Experience the fun anticipation of a unified hourly countdown to paint the sky! Revellers will receive six bags of Gulaal provided with every ticket as well as premium liquor and world class DJs.
Headline sponsor is Desperados, the Universe’s first Tequila flavoured beer. So you know there will be enough to go around.
The DJ’s; Levi Chin, DJ Shells, Vesatile Soundz out of NY and Crown Prince all the way from Dubai. So you know the music will be an eclectic mix. Need we say more?
So there you have it. Friday August 1, it’s time to celebrate life, time to celebrate freedom and emancipate yourselves from any inhibitions. Pigeon Island national landmark 12 am- 10 am.
