18K festival goers attend 5th edition of Comio EVC at Mumbai's Nesco Centre
Comio EVC 2017 brought in fans in large numbers for a stellar line up at the 2-day multi genre concert that set up base at Mumbai's NESCO Centre for its 5th edition.
After an energetic start on 16 December, the next afternoon began with The Unknown warming up the crowd with his energetic set which was followed by millennial favourite singer Shirley Setia who sang covers of popular Bollywood tracks and her debut track ‘Disco Disco’ from the movie A Gentleman.
French DJ/ Producer Hugel got the crowd grooving to his beats before the big set of German DJ/ Producer Robin Schulz. The crowd went insane when the DJ dropped his popular tracks ‘Sugar’ & ‘Prayer in the C’ for his debut performance in India.
Breaking out across the burgeoning music scene in India, Independent Indian Music Producer Nucleya also known as The Koocha Monster slayed it with his tracks ‘Laung Gawacha’, ‘Scene Kya Hai’ & ‘Akkad Bakkad‘.
The much-awaited performance by the legendary singer Arijit Singh with his encore performance at EVC was the highlight of the second day as he serenaded fans with his soulful performance & sang his hit Bollywood tracks ‘Channa Mereya’, ‘Hawayein’ ‘Ab Tum Hi Ho’ & many more.
Known as the King of Bollywood & EDM mash ups, DJ Chetas broke it down & ended the 2-Day concert with remixes of popular Bollywood tracks ‘Nadaan Parindey’, ‘Cutie Pie’, ‘Sweety tera drama’ and many others. He also launched a hit new single ‘Jab Koi Baat’ in collaboration with Shirley Setia and Atif Aslam. This is the first time 2 artists have released a new collaborative song at EVC.
Shirley Setia shares, “ This is my second year performing at EVC and I had an amazing time. It was very different from last year but equally amazing, and probably even better, an epic year. I think EVC was probably one of my first performances in India and this year was probably one of the best years of my life. I hope that people keep loving me as they do and I keep doing more hard work to keep giving the love back to them and I will try my best honestly. I had an amazing time at EVC, thank you so much for loving me and supporting me like you do, I love you guys.”
Devraj Sanyal, MD & CEO of Universal Music Group, India & South Asia said- “We’ve just witnessed one of the finest multi genre concerts the city has seen. Bringing Arijit Singh back to the EVC stage for an encore performance was the best decision we have made. We saw a mammoth crowd descending to our venue to watch a mix of Bollywood & Electronic music today & we couldn’t be happier with the response.”
