Similar to how captivating a trailer can be to a movie, “Sparsh”, the Pre-Bitotsav Weekender, organised by the Team Bitotsav`20 in association with The Fine Arts Society(FAS), BIT Mesra, provided more than just a sneak peek into the prodigious Cultural festival of Eastern India. Held in the IC Arena, the evening of 11th February 2020, it boasted the revelation of the names of the EDM Night and Band Night artists, destined to perform at the event. The revelry commenced at 06:15 P.M. and it was a conglomeration of exuberant dance performances and mellow song tracks that enchanted the packed audience. Tanweerul Haque, from the K18 batch was the host for the evening.
In a first, Aman Singh, from the k16 batch, heightened the tenor with his stupendous dance number that enlivened the crowd to the next level. To add to the hullabaloo, the members of The Fine Arts Society(FAS), BIT Mesra illustrated their extraordinary skills as they inked temporary tattoos on the arms of the curious attendees.
Guneet Singh Oberai, from the K18 batch, was the DJ for the evening as he made the crowd sway on groovy, classical beats, and a pinch of Punjabi hip-hop. Amidst the merrymaking, Alvin Rozario was revealed to be the opening artists for the much awaited Band Night, and later on will be followed by a performance from the band – The Radical Array Project(T.R.A.P), one of the very best music creators in the industry. To keep the adrenaline bolting through the veins, superstars Jean Marie and Nina Suerte were disclosed as the artists to perform in the EDM Night. The jittery crowd went loco as the names of the performing artists were revealed for the first time. High in spirits, the crowd cheered as the temperature dropped and the rich beats rose. Finally, the end of the splendid evening witnessed the massive crowd transforming the IC Arena into jolly dance floor swirling to the music played by the Disc Jockey.
