Live bands can often be seen in bars, restaurants and clubs in season (usually November to February), but DJs playing trance, hip hop and electronica are much more common later in the night in clubs mainly on the coast north of Panaji. Check out What's Up Goa (www.whatsupgoa.com).

Panaji has a modern cinema at INOX, while the Kala Academy is the best place to see local dance and theatre performances.
