After the organizers of Vh1 Supersonic Goa decided to come up with an innovative manoeuvre to test the Indian fan’s dedication and passion to the yet-to-be-announced VH1 Supersonic Phase 1 lineup, wherein fans were interactively engaged on social media by guessing the artist names, the official Phase 1 lineup is finally out!
The fun contest was indeed a step in bringing music to the masses and to shed the commercial image that’s usually associated with it. You can check out our live feed of the Vh1 Supersonic’s Line up reveal that ensued that day.
Now getting to the more awaited part of the news:
