ISM Dhanbad To Host Srijan '14 Through March 28-30

Mar 25, 04:30pm

The Indian School of Mines will host their annual socio-cultural festival, Srijan, through March 28-30, featuring a myriad of social and cultural events.

The Indian School of Mines (ISM) in Dhanbad has tooted its horns and invited all to experience the latest edition of its annual socio-cultural festival, Srijan '14, to be held through March 28-30. Part of the biggest attraction at the festival is the rock competition, called Avalanche, the prelims and the finals of which will be held on March 28 and 29 respectively. The festival has hosted artists like Simon Webbe, Motherjane,  Jal, Strings and many more in the past, and some of the finest bands of the country are expected to battle it out at this year’s Avalanche - which will be held at the open air theater at ISM, Dhanbad. Bands from across the country can apply for registration online, and an opportunity for the winning band to bag a cash prize and recordings with studio Echo in Kolkata worth Rs. 75,000. 

 

 

Putting aside the rock and art competitions, which include literature, dance, dramas, nukkad nataks and more, the festival – which has been around since 1977 – will also feature lectures on social and cultural awareness.

Bands can register for Avalnche, here.

Emerging Artists of 2013

It’s been a good year for young bands, with crowds far more receptive to new artists – young and old alike – and promoters also taking punts on these new bands. Plus, with the internet and Bandcamp and Soundcloud allowing anyone with an internet connection to upload new music, the opportunities for musicians to be heard, reach out, and get attention have naturally increased. So yeah, it’s not all gloomy, even if the weather here in Delhi really is.
