The Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Goa is all set to host their annual festival Waves, from November 1 to 3. This year’s line-up includes live bands, celebrity and stand-up comedy acts, besides national-level competitions.
A notable addition to the fest is the Under 25 Summit on November 1, which will feature some inspiring speakers as part of the panel discussions. This will be followed by a Comedy Night with two of the best stand-up comedians in the country.
Next, immerse yourself in rock, with the SeaRock finals, followed by Indie Night as the closing act of the summit. Don’t miss the performance of The Local Train — the band that has caught the fancy of the country — producing edgy yet meaningful music. Let your worries float away as you join them on an unforgettable voyage through their tales and tunes.
The highlight of the festival will be the act of music composer Amit Trivedi who has given hit numbers in Bollywood films.
The fun does not end here. This year, for the EDM Night, world-renowned Dutch DJ, Tony Junior will be performing. So be prepared to let loose and headbang your night away as you lose yourself in a medley of some of the greatest dance music ever heard.
This year, Waves ‘19 also has a few brand new events under its belt to mesmerise students. To begin with, there will be BITS first ever rap battle competition, Rapsody that will give the opportunity to let the budding Gully Boy showcase their talent. This is the latest addition to their hip-hop street events like the dance events Sixxle and Footloose.
Waves 19 will also feature NEWS-ance, a one-of-its-kind event to allow students to slide into the shoes of a journalist for a day. They have to navigate an interview with a popular celebrity during a press conference, as they compete with others to showcase their journalistic skills. Lastly, there will be a Goa chapter of the Human Library, an initiative where candidates pick and converse with Human Books, and engage with them as they lay bare their tales of struggle, for a unique opportunity to grow alongside them.
