VH1 Supersonic introduces 'rock' to its multi-genre format, Incubus to headline 5th edition

In the 2018 edition of the festival, Vh1 Supersonic gets ready to introduce rock music in its multi genre format with the announcement of the third headliner which will be none other than the American Rock Legend – Incubus. The festival also ups its ante by bringing renowned American music producer and world’s highest-paid DJs listed by Forbe’s annual ranking, Marshmello.


Vh1 Supersonic is pulling all stops to ensure that the 2018 edition of the festival features a houseful festival arena with the specially curated artist line-up by the lord of techno ensemble The Awakenings. That’s not all! India will also get to party to the enchanting tunes of American DJ and record producer Dillon Francis and world’s highest-paid DJs listed by Forbe’s annual ranking, Marshmello.

Commenting on the biggest announcement of Vh1 Supersonic 2018, Saugato Bhowmik, Business Head, Integrated Network Solution & Consumer Products, said, “Over the years we have realized that our audience is inclined towards diverse musical genres. Hence it has remained a continuous vision to bring in variety of artists on our roster. We have been successful in getting some of the biggest names to India to perform at Vh1 Supersonic, which is a coup in itself! We only look forward to continue doing the same.”

Commenting, Nikhil Chinapa, Festival Curator - Vh1 Supersonic said, “The diversity of artists in our lineup for our festival's fifth edition is reflective of the many voices at Vh1 Supersonic, who've come together to finalise our programming mix this year. From rock and indie music to future bass and driving techno, our festival embraces many sounds. I do hope that if you roll into our festival to listen to one genre, you will roll out having accidentally discovered a few others - and that your musical landscape would have forever been altered. That, without doubt, would be the most gratifying outcome of our team's work this past year.”

Excited about coming to India or the first time, Brandon Boyd from Incubus, shares, “We’ve been dreaming about making music in India for decades! The opportunity to play there has always felt like it was almost always out of reach, so now that it is real and we’re coming to India, I can’t express enough how excited and elated we are.”

Other popular artists to feature at VH1 Supersonic's 5th edition are Major Lazera and Alt-J, among others.
