After we facilitated in bringing the Monstercat stage at Sunburn Festival in 2016 to India, our next aim is to educate the music community and consumers about what sets Monstercat apart as an independent label, having won awards and being globally recognized to have had some chart topping releases with well known top quality artists. After we signed Nitro Fun as global management, one of Monstercat’s most well known artists who comes from Mexico and has over 150 Million streams, our goal is also to sample his case study as an example for upcoming talent in India and explain them the importance of music licensing and royalties, along with the importance of smart content across digital landscapes to excel in the domain. We’ve got plenty of special preparations done for this tour to make sure the fans have an immersive and quality experience at the events.”
The shows will feature amazing Monstercat visuals to complement the musical abilities of Justin Oh, one of the best Asian DJs who has featured in Tomorrowland as well and Nitro Fun, a Mexican electronic artist who loves to use drums, guitars and synth.
