Story in Audio

New Year is the time when everyone looks forward to having loads of fun amid perpetually flowing wine, happiness and boundless ecstasy. While some spend the new beginnings with a bash, others celebrate the same in a more simpler manner and the Hilltop New Year's Eve party is just for the former. 

Although a global event, New Year’s Eve has its own charm in India. And when it comes to NYE fun, we all know that Goa is the place to be as new year parties in Goa are all about music, food and a lot of liquor. 

While there are multiple party destinations in Goa for the New Year's, one of the best is the Hilltop NYE bash which has been a crowd-puller ever since its inception. In 2020, Hilltop New Year Party will be held on 31st December.

History of Hilltop, Vagator, Goa

The Hilltop is situated between Vagator and Anjuna Beach and is perhaps one of the favourites of the party buffs. The idea of Hilltop NYE party was introduced by two amazing men, Steve and Starling D’Souza way back in 1974. And since then, it has retained its hippie style of the ’60s. This is something which people in general and the party freaks, essentially, love about this place.   

Major Attractions of Hilltop NYE Party

Between the palm trees of Goa, upon a hill, a great number of fans from around the world gather for the ‘Hilltop Goa’ annual New Year Party celebration. The neon coconut trees, which glow in the dark along with the psychedelic art of the luminous designs showcase the vast open playground for party freaks. All we can say is that it’s a heaven for party lovers.
