EDM Festival SUBMERGE coming to Shillong

EDM Festival SUBMERGE coming to Shillong

In a first of its kind, India's leading dance music company, Submerge is spreading its wings and exploring the northeast with their property 'Submerge Dance Project'

Submerge events have featured some of the biggest names in the industry such as Swedish House Mafia, Tommy Trash, Richie Hawtin, Pierce Fulton,  John OO Fleming, DBN, Shogun, Style of Eye and Michael Woods. Submerge in association with local pioneers CPEN (Centre Point Entertainment Network) and media partner TNT- The Northeast Today are bringing back Submerge Dance Project to the Scotland of the East- Shillong  with the Swedish heavyweight Albin Myers supported by the pioneer and face of dance music in India- Nikhil Chinapa and the extremely versatile and talented Nawed Khan.

Centre Point Entertainment Network (CPEN) announced its arrival with a bang by presenting Michael Learns To Rock concert in Shillong in 2005. Later on it went to organizing the Eric Martin: Voice of Mr Big concert and the biggest ever Rock concert in North East to a sell out crowd of 35,000 in 2007 SCORPIONS. It also organized the Shillong Autumn Festival in 2012. Submerge's foray into the North- East with CPEN promises to set the roots of dance music and set a lifetime experience!

Prolific producer, show stopping DJ, national TV personality; whichever words one would use to describe the Swedish luminary that is Albin Myers, there can be no denying the fact that he is one of the fastest rising, most promising stars of the electronic music world. A performer in the truest sense of the word, with an inventive finesse and a fresh originality of touch in the studio to match, he is an artist whose capability, showmanship and diligence know no bounds.

To say that Nikhil Chinapa has donned many an avatar during his career, is like saying it snows in Alaska; a bit of an understatement. He morphs from DJ to VJ to MC to Music Promoter to Festival Director —some of his best known avatars — with amazing fluidity.  As a popular VJ, Nikhil got to spend a lot of time around his first love, music. In 2001, a conversation between friends resulted in the launch of Submerge — India's first, and now largest Indian Electronic Dance Music (EDM) company in India.

Nawed Khan is one of the biggest names in the booming Dance music scene in India. A resident with Submerge, India's biggest artist management agency and dance music promoter, Nawed has constantly stayed ahead of the slow paced music scene in India by acquiring and playing brand new tunes and almost Impossible to obtain mixes of classics.


Submerge is India's leading dance music portal. Founded in 2003 by Nikhil Chinapa, Pearl, and Hermit Sethi, Submerge's goal is simple: to connect Indian dance music fans with the best DJs from around the world.
