What is known to be the largest fest in Asia that is entirely organised by students, Spring Fest in it’s 58th edition, promises to be three unforgettable days.
Covering 10 different genres, namely dance, dramatics, music , fine arts and more, students from over 400 colleges are expected to take part in over 90 events at IIT Kharagpur’s annual extravaganza to be held on the 20th, 21st and 22nd of January, 2017. A lucrative total amount of 25 lacs is up for grabs as cash prizes for various events.
Not only do students come to take part in the events and win attractive cash prizes, but also witness what is known as ‘pronites’ or performances by renowned artists. This year, the performances will include singing sensation Armaan Malik on the 20th, a EDM night featuring Zaeden on 21st and Bollywood duo Vishal and Shekhar on the closing night. Apart from this, several international acts are also in store, that’ll see jugglers, beatboxers and graffiti artists from different parts of the world coming down to showcase their talents. Several workshops are also organised for students to attend which include mocktail making, collage making, salsa and more. A unique new part is the Spring Fest Foodfest that will also take place. From culinary competitions to a workshop by Kirti Bhoutika, the winner of Master Chef India Season 5, the foodfest is specially for all the masterchefs out there. The theme for this year’s Spring Fest is ‘Bollywood Boulevard’ so you can expect a lot of dhamaka, in a totally filmy style. The social Cause for Spring Fest is Masoomiyat : An appeal to the child in you! Masoomiyat primarily focuses on shedding light on instances of child abuse, child labour or child marriage and aims to strive for mitigation measures for the same.
