The name’s SF, Spring Fest. We are the youth. We celebrate life. SF is the annual social-cultural festival of Indian Institute of Technology, Khragpur. The biggest social-cultural extravaganza of Eastern India, touching almost 30000 young spirits from over 100 colleges. The mecca of creative zeal: SF has competitions spanning all genres like literary, music, dance, journalism, fine arts, oratory and drama. The supernova like brilliance of star nites: dazzled in the past by the likes of Sukhwinder, Led Zeppelica, India Jazz Suites, Shan and Pentagram. Open air dance discos, wacky events, treasure hunts and adventures games make one heck of an entertaining time. But youth is not just about fun though and sure, neither is SF. We know our social responsibilities and we fight for social and environmental justice – starting from voluntary blood donation camps, youth marathon, associating with NGOs and socio-economic case studies
When Skid Row started in 1986 by breaking the hell loose in New Jersey club circuits, few doubted their potential. But few would have imagined them becoming the monster act they are. Their eponymous debut album spawned hits like “I Remember You�? and “Youth Gone Wild�? and went on to sell more than 5 million copies! This was but an indication of things to come, for 5 albums, 20 years and 20 million copies later, Skid Row are still performing in packed arena, enthralling hordes of fans with their unique take on glam metal and hard rock.
