Mood Indigo, the much-awaited annual college festival organised by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay will kick off on Thursday, 27 December, marking the end of 2018 with some stellar performances and exciting events. The event, which is a high point on the calendars of hundreds of students across the country, boasts of massive diversity in this edition with nearly 25 countries set to participate in the festivities.
The annual extravaganza attracts a large number of student participation in multiple inter-college competitions organised through the course of the festival and many graduate and undergraduate attendees from several esteemed institutions throughout the country. Montage of Dreams makes for the theme of the 2018 edition promising a journey of surreal, dreamlike experiences.
Spread out in the vast, 550-acre grounds of IIT Bombay, this year Mood Indigo, better known among the millennials as MoodI, will feature a night of EDM with Ummet Ozcan, the Dutch and Turkish DJ, followed by Leprous, the metal band from Norway, among other performances.
MoodI 2018 is largely helmed by the student body of IIT and will also be holding some of its signature events including 'Vogue' and 'She’s Got the Look', that showcase varsity fashion talents, and other quirky contests planned for this year such as 'Radioactive,' a battle between all the Radio Jockeys in the house. Other fun activities — odes to childhood — such as paintball, bungee and trampoline jumping and go-karting are undoubtedly some of the other highlights at Mood Indigo.
Furthermore, Kiran Bedi and the Textiles Minister of India, Smriti Irani will discuss some pertinent issues regarding the country's politics and policy with those gathered at the event. The evening of Day 3 of the four-day long event will feature a concert by Papon and stand-up comedians Abhishek Upmanyu, Atul Khatri and Kunal Kamra will take to the stage at the festival this year. MoodI is set to close with a performance by the musical duo Saleem-Sulaiman.
