Looks like it’s the ultimate dream for the Mello-gang in India, as Marshmello will return for his second Vh1 Supersonic appearance, on February 16-17, 2019, at the Mahalaxmi Lawns, Pune.
Good news comes pouring in as Vh1 Supersonic unveiled their phase 1 of the lineup to play at the 2019 festival edition in Pune. While there was high anticipation for an unseen heavy-weight to be announced on the headline roster, Vh1 Supersonic have announced that the Main Stage headliner will indeed be Marshmello. We can hear the Mello-gang all over India rejoicing about that, but we’re sure this is not the last of the surprises and there sure are many more great talents to be announced later on as this roster builds on.
Phase 1 of the lineup features Marshmello and Bonobo LIVE as headliners, with Cubicolor LIVE, Polyphilia, Troyboi & more, also announced on the roster. The techno side of things see Arjun Vagale, BLOT!, Ash Roy, and more, on the current lineup.
Techno fans may also have a lot more to look forward to at the BUDXAwakenings stage. More details about its roster to come out soon.

Commenting on the announcement, Saugato Bhowmik, Business Head, Integrated Network Solutions & Consumer Products, said, “Vh1 Supersonic has become the annual music pilgrimage for thousands of music fans from across the country and it delights us immensely to evoke the emotion of #Betherebefree for our fans with this marquee music extravaganza. I am immensely proud and grateful for the continued faith placed in us by our partners Budweiser, Fastrack and absolutely delighted that American Tourister has joined the family too! The love and encouragement we receive from our fanbase has not only put us firmly on the top spot over the last 2 years but also inspires us to keep going one step better each time. Personally, can’t wait to see Bonobo playing Live and the absolute mega Marshmello.”
Kartikeya Sharma, Budweiser Vice President Marketing, South Asia said, “We have had a very strong partnership with Vh1 Supersonic, over the last 3 seasons. It’s a festival that has grown from being a music platform to one where culture is created & shaped & the consumers they attract is a testament to this evolution. We’re excited to continue and grow this partnership with the introduction of immersive experiences like the BudX stage & the Bud beer garden & are confident that Vh1 Supersonic is the perfect platform for us to connect with India’s youth & deliver world class experiences.”
Vh1 Supersonic 2018 was a year of many firsts, and many grand moments in the festival’s history, and proved to be one of the most monumental editions ever. While February seems like a long time away, take a trip down memory lane, and stay tuned to us to know of the latest lineup additions.
The festival curator of Vh1 Supersonic, Nikhil Chinapa said, “We’re covering an incredible amount of musical ground with the artists we’ve invited to our sixth edition. From festival-favourite Marshmello – who’s globally had the most incredible year in 2018, to our piece-de-resistance – Bonobo performing LIVE with an enormous 8-piece ensemble. Lending more firepower to our burgeoning techno scene, the global behemoths of the genre – Awakenings – return to the festival for their fourth year too. Vh1 Supersonic continues to push the boundaries of the ever-expanding soundscape and the team and I couldn’t be prouder of the diverse lineup of artists we’ve put together for 2019! Cubicolor LIVE with their entire band and Tropkillaz – both will make debut appearances in India at our festival in this edition.”
Vh1 Supersonic 2019, presented by Budweiser and in support by American Tourister, and Fastrack, takes place on February 16-17, at Mahalaxmi Lawns, Pune. #BeThereBeFree
