All our productions were made with that in mind. We strive to bring

Q: Talk about the upcoming NYE 2014 at Waters Edge
A: We are so happy to present our third installment, NYE 2014
- Celebrate Art, Love and Life. NYE 2014 is scheduled to be held on the
31st of December at Waters Edge Colombo from 8pm to 8am. The event is
designed to be one which is different and unique, in comparison to other
events organised especially in Colombo. We are together with Media WIZE
will put together Sri Lanka’s biggest event production for a New Years
Eve themed event.
Our target is to provide an unique experience to our audience.
Generally all events organised during this season is made in a
stereotypical pattern, which will serve dinner and breakfast along side
live performances by bands or Dj’s. We want to step aside from this
status quo and organise events which are of international standards, and
embrace the growing EDM culture of the world.
Q: What are the special elements of the event?
A: Talk about the stage structure of the event it is usually
associated with industrial giants such as Electric Daisy Carnival (USA,
UK), Tomorrow-Land (Belgium) and Gods Kitchen (UK). The overall event is
designed and created to spread all across the Waters Edge Colombo. The
main stage will be strategically placed by team of experts to maximise
viewing pleasure for both General Admission and VIP.
In addition to that all visual artworks, decorations and special
effects will be designed by a team of professional artists to keep the
audience in a cheer and joy mood. Using state of the art 3D Video
Mapping, programmed light effects and stage decoration and lighting we
will collaborate the main features in three of the main international
festivals in world.
Q: Who are the headliners of the event and what is the musical
lineup of the event and music genres?
A: The world famous DJ Grum from UK and Max Graham from Canada
are our two main artistes who are going to perform at the event. These
foreign artistes are specifically picked by our team of experts because
of the genre they play and of the total fans they have reached in a
specific time frame. Talking about the music genre that they play is
both popular internationally and locally are for Progressive,
Progressive/Trance trends. We believe such a genre is ideal for a 31st
night themed event.
Along with this international line up, six of Sri Lanka’s best Dj’s
will be performing at the event. This event will also go down in history
as the first event in Sri Lanka, which is tailor made to an
international music genre .
This is bound to give the audience the feeling of music enrichment of
a life time as it is, extremely popular internationally and locally.
Q: What are the other entertainment items that NYE 2014
To give the party it’s flavour, we have utilised the most advanced
video mapping technology in Sri Lanka, stretching to international
standards. Also no 31st night will be complete without a fireworks
display. Thus, we have organised an exotic fireworks display which is
second to none.
Apart from this, there will be 4 professional dancers from Infinity
Rock Entertainment (UK), specially choreographed, to perform live on
stage. Fantasia-Inc, introduce TVG for the First time in Sri Lanka. It
is an unique crowd interactive system built by Fantasia-Inc to keep the
audience in level and sync with the agenda of the event, which is
designed to deliver that unique experience.
A concept incorporated in all our events, a free gift to all ticket
holders as a token of appreciation.
Generally for events held on the 31st, tickets are priced at the
higher end and the minimum would cost Ten Thousand Rupees.

attractive and will result in a sold out event.
