KharagpurSpring Fest is the annual social and cultural fest of the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. With an online reach of over 100000, Spring Fest is one of the largest of its kind in Asia to be organized entirely by students. Enthusiastic participants from almost 750 major colleges of India throng to Kharagpur to this 3-day celebration of fun and frolic.

Spring Fest 2021 was the 62nd edition of the fest and happened from 19th to 21st of February, 2021. This year, Spring Fest has scheduled Hitch Hike, the Nationwide Prelims for its Dance, Drama, Music, Fashion, and Literary events in twenty-one cities across India, namely Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Nagpur, Guwahati, Chennai, Vizag, Raipur, Indore, Bhubaneshwar, Ranchi, Kolkata, Pune, Dehradun, Patna, Lucknow, Jaipur, and Chandigarh.

With the budding enthusiasm of the participants and the Organizing team and the palpable excitement in the air, this edition of Spring Fest was probably grander than ever. Spring Fest conducts a multitude of events encompassing 12 genres and more than 130 events are contested among the best in India with a total cash prize worth around INR 35 lakhs at stake. As always, a boatload of new events is here to tickle your senses and bring out the hidden talent in you.

These events aim to provide a battlefield for the best of the best and also to have the participants experience the time of their lives. Our last year’s social initiative – Prayatan: Taking a Bite Out of Hunger aimed to improve the living standards of the people of Gopali (a village located 5 km from the IIT Campus), and tackling social, economic, and educational problems faced by the rural communities through its project and initiatives. We aim to eradicate the hunger issues among the school children in and around the IIT Kharagpur campus.

Star-nights have always been an integral part of the Spring Fest charm. Artists like Shaan, Vishal-Shekhar, Farhan Akhtar, Amit Trivedi, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Salim-Sulaiman, KK, Prateek Kuhad, The Raghu Dixit Project, Agnee, Indian Ocean, Swarathma, Parikrama, Euphoria, Pentagram, The Local Train, and many more monumental performances have happened at Spring Fest in the past years. International bands like Dead by April, Monuments, Tesseract have rocked the audience at Spring Fest.

This year, Spring Fest witnessed enthralling performances by Amaal Malik, Indian Ocean, Bassjackers, J Trix X Subspace, and many more, making our 3 days better than they could not be.
