Panaji, Jul 7: Remo Fernandes, the internationally acclaimed pop singer, will be enthralling the audience at the Big Chill festival to be held in England from August 3 to 5.

According to the festival's official website, the musical event will be held at a camping weekend, set in the beautiful surroundings of Eastnor Castle Deer Park, deep in the Malvern Hills, England.
Fernandes, who had played with the opening band with Big Chill in Goa, this year in mid-April, is specially invited by the organisers of this world famous musical festival.
"It's honour to play for such a festival", said Fernandes adding, "the organizers of this festival respect nature and they leave no trace of the festival after it is over. There is no garbage littered or rubbish around".

Big Chill is one of the biggest music festivals in UK. The festival hit the Indian shores for the first time in April with their two-day long performance at Ashwem beach in North Goa.

"I really enjoyed playing in Big Chill in Goa. After their Goa tour we exchanged few e-mails," Fernandes said.

Remo, who was honoured with Padmashree award recently, played in the opening band "Chilled by Nature" led by Pete Lawrence, the mentor of Big Chill.
Fernandes also played in the concluding band "Cold Cut" led by Matt Black in Goa. "Me playing in both the bands was a coincidence," Fernandes said.

    Very happy to learn that Remo is invited to perform at England’s Big Chill Music Festival this year. Sometime ago I had an opportunity to witness Remo performing for a fusion concert with famous British Rock Band “Jethro Tull” and specially the legendary singer / flutist Ian Anderson in Dubai.

    Remo had mesmerized both Western and Asian Crowd with his much popular “Flute Song” and other numbers. Best thing was, Remo began the show singing native Konkani Numbers. As an ardent fan, I wish him new heights.

    The first time I had heard of this highly acclaimed pop singer, namely Remo Fernandes, was in the mid-1980s, when print media carried a news item about his special performance for Rajiv Gandhi and his guests. This man is a highly acclaimed singer, who sings solo. He also travels all over the world, as obviously he has an hectic schedule.
