Late Night Parties Will Soon Be Completely Banned In Goa

Posted at April 11th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Entertainment, News, Nightlife

Goa has been under a lot of pressure due its infamous nightlife and music festivals. Post the crackdown which led to Sunburn and Supersonic shifting base, there have been a lot of stories about parties being banned for specific time periods/ during elections and stuff. Rebel parties were also working together to make sure that dance music and rave scene are banned. Now the minister for water resources and Siolim MLA Vinod Palyekar is claiming that a lot of late night parties in the Vagator area have been shut down for good due to extensive police checks. He is promising a total halt on parties with loud music soon.

“We have already stopped 80% of these parties. Within two weeks, all the parties will be shut. The police have already been instructed,” Palyekar said. He also believes this is the first step in stopping the growing drug trade at the coast.

“In spite of several warnings & reminders late night music goes on till 3 to 4 am in the morning which is creating problems not only for Old aged Citizens but also to the Student Community who are answering their Board exams,” he said. “The only obstruction is coming from some of the hoteliers as their business is getting impacted. I have given a final warning to the Police now & would be meeting the chief minister on this matter.”

He believes that late night parties are not a part of the Indian culture and should not be encouraged. A few people resist taking action and shutting down by taking his name when the police comes to crackdown, but that will be taken care of as well. Stay tuned for updates, on what seems to be the slow death of nightlife in Goa.
