BITS Goa Going All Out With Their Preparations For Waves

Jul 11, 04:18pm

The organisers of this year's edition of BITS Goa's annual festival, Waves, are trying their level best to leave no stones unturned. Scheduled to be taking place from October 31 to November 2, one of the biggest attractions of this extravaganza should be Searock, a semi-professional band competition. 

The preparations for the annual cultural festival of BITS Pilani Goa Campus, Waves 2014 - scheduled to be held from October 31 to November 2 - are being carried out in full swing, with the organizers promising this year’s event to be an extravagant affair matching the quality of the best of college festivals across the country.

Searock 2014, labeled as a semi-professional band competition, surely has to be one of the biggest attractions of the festival. Holding a much-publicized registration process followed by eliminations at five venues across India for the final line up, it has been met with an overwhelming response. With the eventual winner of the competition getting a chance to open for an international headlining act, the vibes we are getting are certainly that of a prestigious competition.

As the previous few editions of the festival turned out to be huge successes with performers like Vishal & Shekhar, Blackstratblues, Kailash Kher, Parikrama, and Junkyard Groove attracting hoards of crowds, the organizers this year are highly motivated to break even more records.  With the primary emphasis being on the facilitation and promotion of all forms of art and culture, the festival has subdivided the events to fall into fields including literature, drama, fashion, quiz, and music. Incorporating such a diverse array of events, we can surely expect to see all kinds of participants and audiences taking a note of the dates in their calendars.

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.
