India, 30th March 2022– The 15th edition of Asia’s largest music festival, Sunburn brings to India yet another massive multi-city Arena showcase this April 2022. Sunburn Arena makes an outstanding comeback post a hiatus due to the pandemic with a 4-city tour featuring the legendary British-born Norwegian artist and multi-platinum record producer Alan Walker.
The multi-city Sunburn Arena Tour will see the legendary Alan Walker performing his electronic jam on 14th April at Mahalakshmi Racecourse, Mumbai, followed by Bhartiya City, Bengaluru on 15th April and Hitex, Hyderabad on 16th April, to finally culminate on 17th April at Backyard, Gurgaon. He will be joined on stage by special guest German singer-songwriter Au/Ra and Norwegian singer-songwriter Julie Bergan.
The 23-year-old first performed in India in 2016 blowing listeners away with his now classic hit ‘Faded’ among other tunes and thereafter received thumping success at the India leg of the Aviation Tour in 2019. Donning his trademark mask and hoodie, Walker has made quite a name for himself in the music world, with more than 15 billion audio and video streams worldwide as well as around 40 million followers on social media and 10 million subscribers on Spotify.
The EDM maven has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business, including Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus, Sia and Avicii. Continuously listed as one of the top 100 most popular artists on Spotify, some of his more popular singles include ‘On My Way,’ ‘Alone,’ ‘All Falls Down’, ‘Spectre’ and ‘Diamond Heart.’ Walker has supported artists such as Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Kygo, performing at many of the best music festivals around the world – Coachella, Tomorrowland, Ultra, Lollapalooza – you name it, and he’s likely to have played there. The young man has been nominated 13 times for various music awards and snagged the No. 17 spot on DJ MAG Top 100. His fanbase (known as ‘Walkers’) are as passionate as they come, and all share a fascination with the young artist’s refreshing tunes.
