The scene in India has been on the rise for quite some time, and it’s only getting bigger.
Did you know? Goa trance actually derived from the psychedelic dance music scene in—you guessed it—Goa. It’s the party capital of India, after all. Also, Anjuna—which you might recognize from Above & Beyond’s illustrious imprint Anjunabeats—is the name of a beach in Goa.
I spent a week in Goa last year, and I couldn’t believe some of the beach raves there. They go harder than most and don’t quit until 8am every day! Their psychedelic trance game is out-of-this-world awesome, and it’s worth a visit even if you aren’t a fan of that style of music.
Aside from Goa, the nightlife scenes in Mumbai and Delhi were freaking awesome. Most of the clubs are a mix of techno and psytrance. It’s truly a techno person’s heaven.
