Get set for some non-stop music

The National Law School of India University of India (NLSIU) is all set to host the 16th edition of ‘Strawberry Fields’, its annual rock fest from November 30 to December 2 at Palace Grounds. There is going to be three days of non-stop music at the rock fest, that is touted to be the country’s biggest and one that attracts thousands of students  every year.

The fest brings together some of the country’s top rock bands to battle it out over three days. The management of the NLSIU has shortened the class hours to let the students plan and organise the fest. The fest was created with the aim of providing a platform to bands to showcase their talent, to a wider audience. This year, there will be 50 semi-professional rock bands, who will play over the first two days.

Some of the bands that will feature in this year’s fest are ‘Skyharbor’, and Bangalore- based psychedelic rock band Parvaaz. They will headline the finale on December 2.
Palace Grounds has played host to numerous iconic concerts but this is the first time ‘Strawberry Fields’ is being held there. Talking more about the fest, Susmit Paul Aranya, president, Student Bar Association, NLSIU says, “Each band will be given 20 minutes for its performance where the students will be judged. The last day will see the top five bands perform and the winner will be chosen.

We have more than 30 registrations and the judges are still
being finalised.”  Susmit feels, “The fest has grown bigger with more bands and audience coming in. This is the one fest that we at NLSIU look forward to. However, ‘LeGala’ our literary fest, has been postponed to March.” ‘Strawberry Fields’ has its hardcore followers across the City’s colleges.

Sana, a second PUC student of Mount Carmel College, says, “It’s non-stop music and this is the only fest where you get to see such a large number of bands perform on a common platform. One also gets to hear some original music.” Deccan Herald is the media partner for this year’s ‘Strawberry Fields’.
