Goa has always been one of the most popular year-end destination, thanks to the all the music festivals! But this year, it all changes. Concerned about heavy traffic and security issues, Tourism Minister Dilip Parulekar has put a ban on music fests happening from December 15 to January 15. Left with no choice, Goa has to say goodbye to Sunburn and Supersonic.
