Founded in Goa two years ago, the project’s concept involves promoting intelligent Electronic music mixed with a sunset ambience at the beach and a high-end cocktail bar. The brainchild of Karan Bhoj and Vic Lakhani, it is the only organisation to design regular weekly events with the most relevant names from European Underground music world.

Devraj Sanyal, MD and CEO of Universal Music Group, South Asia, stated in a press release, “EVC has always aimed to be a multi-genre music festival and the addition of ‘Intelligent global music culture sound is one step further in that direction. While we have global stages like Armada, it’s vital for India to have our own stages too.”
