The ‘BollyBoom’ festival is a scintillating blend of music, dance and entertainment. The first event is scheduled on 24thNovember in New Delhi.

One of every 6 people on the planet is an Indian, and bollywood music is an integral part of his life. Bollywood music has also grown in popularity and acceptance beyond the Indian population. There is a huge untapped market out there for ‘bollywood dance music’.

Sonu Nigam, Salim Suleiman, and Talat Aziz have been working relentlessly to create this new magic and will present their creations to the world at the first edition of ‘BollyBoom’ at Delhi on Nov 24th 2013.

Percept, given its 3 decades of experience in event business, and having given the music fans, ‘sunburn’, will bring the best in class, technology, experience, and entertainment with ‘bollywood dance music’ to create a never before live entertainment experience for the dance music lovers.

Taking about their brand new intellectual property, Manuj Agarwal, CEO, Percept Live said, “We have 600 million people below the age of 25 years and their need for entertainment is immense. The youth today is quite knowledgeable and is aware of the global entertainment scenario. TV, YouTube, internet etc has brought the latest music concerts, performance of international artists and events to their bedrooms. And hence they expect the same scale and level with Indian live entertainment including bollywood concerts. Bollywood Music has been a lifeline of India for ages now. Every Disc, Lounge, Club, Wedding, Birthday Celebrations prominently has Bollywood music being played in its original & remix form. Bollywood music reaches a large multitude of audiences across the globe. But the scale of bollywood live events has remained unchanged for years now. Bollywood events have been confined to being TV shows. Though the popularity of bollywood music talent is unquestionable but their live concerts haven’t come close to any of international artists. We don’t speak of their concerts in the same league as that of Rihanna’s, David Guetta’s or even any upcoming artist concert. The reason being scale and packaging & not talent. We need to back them up with latest production, technical’s, special effects and music trends. With Bollyboom, Percept Live with the experience and talent of Sonu Nigam, Salim, Sulaiman & Talat Aziz will infuse these chartbusters with an intrinsic mix of live entertainment elements. BollyBoom will be large scale Concerts & Stage shows across India and abroad wherein artist performances will be complimented with all of the above elements in order to make the same stage show into a live entertainment experience for fans.”

Shailendra Singh Jt MD Percept Ltd wished the team luck and said “Youngistan is keen to step out and enjoy the world of live entertainment. Percept, after it’s success with Sunburn, is fully committed to creating a never seen before experience in the world of Bollywood. We are excited to put all our knowledge, experience and resources to make BollyBoom – India’s first Bollywood live entertainment experience for Youngistan – a smashing success.”

“BollyBoom is first of its kind live entertainment property that will take Bollywood music to a totally different level and enthrall the Bollywood music lovers from across the world. Bollywood is one of the most popular genres of music and this property will set a new trend in the music scene in India”, said Salim and Suleman, ace music composers.

Adding to this, Talat Aziz said, “Percept Live has been instrumental in setting up trends in the music and entertainment industry today. BollyBoom will give the music lovers a chance celebrate this infusion of electronic dance music with popular Bollywood numbers and reach out to a larger audience.”

“The Indian music scene has undergone a huge change in the past few years and electronic dance music has emerged as one of the most popular genre of music in India courtesy properties like Sunburn which have contributed immensely in bringing in this change. EDM has a huge fan following and appeal to the youth population globally. BollyBoom will set a new benchmark in live entertainment event industry and will appeal to a larger section of people in India as well as globally,“ concluded Sonu Nigam.

The music will be a blend of Trance, House, Hip Hop, Electro Funk, Synthetic, Pop, Club Music, Techno, Trance, Hardstyle and Dubstep, among others.
