Psytrance Festivals in India




Main Languages


India has been a popular psytrance destination for decades. Ever since Westerners embarked on the hippie trail, Goa in particular became a hotspot for nightlife culture and beach parties. The golden age and first wave of Goa Trance was generally agreed upon between 1994 and 1997.

Today, Goa features a mix of local fans and international tourists, although the scene is no longer underground, with festivals often visited by authorities and run the risk of being shutdown.

For psytrance parties, head to North Goa. Some popular nights include Hilltop on Sundays, Shiva Valley on Tuesday, and Curlies on Thursdays.
