Early this month in Bangalore, we saw an outreach event by Festember ’14.
Gig-a-Hertz the semi pro rock band competition by the National Institute of Technology, Trichy, Tamil Nadu, took place in the Phoenix Market City, Bangalore.
Festember the annual cultural festival of the National institute of technology Trichy, Tamil Nadu is a 3 day extravaganza from the 25th to the 28th of September. People flock in their numbers to participate in the 51 events organized by Festember. One of the greatest is Gig-a-Hertz.
With cash prizes worth 3 lakh Indian Rupees along with recording deals to the winners, this event is sought after by many a rock bands throughout the country. This year the preliminary round of the Gig-a- Hertz event was executed in Kochi and Bangalore. Participants performed numbers from their own composition and that of the ‘Hall of Fame’ rock artists.With immensely talented rock bands from in and around the city participating in the competition, the event was able to showcase to the audience from around the world, India’s musical talent. This event was completed successfully with the help of the participants and partners. Even the occasional downpour did not break the resolute technocrats from the Trichy.
These successful events in Bangalore and Kochi just show what the students of the National Institute of Technology, Trichy, are capable of doing. So we would like to take a moment to invite the readers to come and join them in Trichy, to participate, cheer our talented friends and have a wonderful time because- “It’s the Hawaiian Affair”.
