VH1 Supersonic 2019 Review: Weekend Done Right
By Bandook - February 18, 2019
The performances, the experiences, and the vibe… Vh1 Supersonic 2019 had it all. Rakes of millennials grooving to their favorite musicians, indulging in the food and shopping experiences, and living the moment, that’s weekend done right for all.
Spread across four stages, the multi-genre line-up had headlining acts such as Jaden Smith, Marshmello, Two Door Cinema Club and Rudimental turning the area into an open-air club leaving audiences with an experience to cherish.
Live acts like Bonobo, Blackstratblues, Polyphia and Kavya X Chaz added their own flavor to the festival. And if you were a technohead, the Awakenings Stage had you bobbing to key acts like Colin Benders, BLOT! Paul Ritch and Gaiser. And the small but no less than any other ’10,000 Lions Sound System’ which kept the party going on in a Rastafari vibe.
The two-day event had multiple musical moments to remember. A flash performance by Broken Brass band right amongst the audience after the Rudimental set got over, Kartik Aaryan taking the stage with Marshmello while Coca Cola Tu played, a captivating and enthralling performance by Bonobo, Jaden Smith entering the stage with an Indian flag. Standout Indian acts included Prateek Kuhad, Blackstrat Blues, Kavya x Chazz, Skrat and Sandunes, whom die-hard fans couldn’t resist singing/grooving along to, and capturing them on their phones.
The festival could have done much better on the sound output on the first day, which did disappoint few of the fans.
Vh1 Supersonic sported not just an array of music acts, but also a wide range of fun-filled activities and experiences. Complete with multiple food options and quirky festival merchandise, the Superflea and Food market was a huge hit. Students of Symbiosis College showcased beautiful art across the festival that added to the spectacular ambience at the festival. The festival also believes in pampering its patrons. Hence, the De-stress corner, the super flea market and the gaming pit had taken all on a trip of relaxation and leisure.
