Having its foundations laid in as early as 1975, Festember has flourished from being a modest inter-cultural fest fully organized by the student community of NIT Trichy to a spectacular exhibition that draws in more than 15,000 students from over 500 colleges across the country.
With an amalgam of cultural, arts and literary events in various languages including English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, workshops and absolute entertainment, Festember has become one of South India’s biggest in its genre. Awarded the Best Cultural Event of the Year by the State Government of Tamil Nadu in 2005, Festember has emerged as undoubtedly one of the most highly rated cultural fests in India.
One of the most unique and integral highlights of Festember are the free ProShows featuring prominent local and international artists.This year saw (S)haan spin some tunes for the EDM night. Check the official teaser of their EDM night here:
Ilayaraja, Karthik, Sivamani, Alvar & Millas, Candice Redding, Euphoria, Pritam, Benny Dayal, Javed Ali, Karthick Iyer, Salim-Sulaiman, Shakthisree Gopalan and Vishal-Shekhar are just some of the celebrities in previous editions of Festember.
