Shailendra Singh, co-creator of India’s Sunburn festival, has announced the World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival, to be held in India from December 1-3, 2017. The festival will continue in the tradition of Hardwell’s similarly titled and history making free performance in December 2015 which benefits education charities. Along with the date announcement, Singh has released the festival’s logo–an important symbol of what the event champions.
“The World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival logo is a powerful statement,” said Singh. “The world is incredibly divided right now. What we need is more love. We need so much love, that there is no room for hate. Each one of us has a heart that is capable of sharing such love, of beating as one, and making the world a better place. And, why not do it through what we all enjoy – music.”
The festival will be helmed by Singh’s latest venture Guestlist4Good through which he creates charity events focused on funding education for underprivileged youth in India. He added that the festival will differ from other high profile events, saying: “The World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival is IN India, FOR India.”
Among the company’s other charitable endeavors are the aforementioned Hardwell performance–which provided free education to over 18,000 underprivileged Indian students–and Martin Garrix’s performance of a similar nature that helped sponsor more than 25,000 students in total. With the festival, Guestlist4Good hopes to create history by empowering more children through the power of love and music–a cause the EDM industry can support wholeheartedly.
