Arijit Singh Live in Concert

Imagine being a 5yr old kid and finding out that your favourite cartoon character is going to visit your neighbourhood. Yep, that’s what it is like for all the grown up kids around town these days. The Arijit fever has engulfed each one of us. So can we afford to miss a single opportunity to watch him performing live in front of our eyes.

What : Arijit Singh Live in Concert
When : Jan 28, 2018 | 6:30 to 10:30 PM
Where: Exhibition Ground, Chandigarh

The voice that defines love is all set to steal our hearts this winter with his four month tour across the country. Royal Stag Mega Music presents the Arijit Singh MTV India Tour by Wizcraft, India’s largest live entertainment company. Flagged off at his home turf in Kolkata on Dec 24, Arijit is scheduled to perform in over 10 cities across 4 months. He is coming to Chandigarh this weekend, i.e. on Sunday, January 28. We simply can not miss this chance especially when he’s coming right here to in our city beautiful!

Over the years, Arijit has built an impressive fanbase that today idolises his songs and awaits his live concerts for months at a stretch. We’re not sure whether it was back in his Barfi! days when he stole our hearts or whether it was his rendition of songs for Aashiqui 2, or perhaps both! Fact remains that over a short span of less than five years, Arijit has managed to imprison our hearts with his lyrical renditions and our souls with his melodious voice.

Expect to lose yourself in the chartbuster hits “Channa Mereya”, “Tum Hi Ho”, “Muskurane Ki Wajah”, “Raabta” and “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” this Sunday. Or perhaps you’ll find yourself more attuned to his older collaborative renditions like “Ilahi”, “Phir Le Aya Dil”, “Kabira”, and “Main Rang Sharbaton Ka”. Whatever your preferred choice of music, you’re sure to lose yourself in the magical vibe of Arijit’s voice.

So what are you waiting for? Go download your favourite Arijit songs today and set your playlist on repeat. Memorize the lyrics today in preparation for the concert. Just wait till you can sing along with him, live! It’ll be an experience you won’t want to miss out on! If you’re lucky enough, perhaps you’ll even get the chance to sing with him on stage. Who would want to miss out on such a chance!

The biggest pop culture event is here once again and we can not contain our excitement! Comic Con is known worldwide for being the one event that celebrates our much beloved fictional universe(s). The one place where it’s okay to yell “HODOR!” in public and expect someone to say it back.

Comic Con stands true to its name and is the leading promoter of comic culture in the country. You’ll find everything at the event from the classics such as Amar Chitra Katha to the legends in their own right DC and Marvel comics. As well as the newer one in the market.

10+ Fresh Event Ideas You Should Try Out

By Vaibhav Jain
10+ Fresh Event Ideas You Should Try Out

Are you done with all the old and boring event ideas? Do the tested and proven event concepts not inspire you any more? Are you looking to bring about some fresh, exciting events to your audience? If the answer is in affirmation to these questions, then this post is for you! Here we are going to suggest some event ideas which not many people may have heard of before.

Let’s go!

1. Car Boot Sale
The first one is a really unique concept. All of us have at least some possessions, which we no longer use or need. So why not sell them out, and that too in a fun way! People can come together, bring along all the stuff that they want to get rid of (which can be literally anything), and sell them all out of their car boots. Wouldn’t it be a hell lot of fun? I can already imagine!

2. Silent Disco
Disco is all about loud music, dance and party. Not necessarily. The concept of silent disco can be an amazing new change. People would dance and party, but there would be no loud music. Each person will have a headphone, each playing the same beat and people can dance together. An onlooker may consider your group a bunch of mad people, but how does that matter? One should anyways dance like no-one is watching.

3. Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality is not yet a part of our everyday lives, but it’s a hot topic of discussion in the tech world. An event around the unknown is bound to be successful. You will need to buy some VR Headsets, or rent them from a gaming parlour, and you are set for any type of event in the virtual world. You won’t need much else, for everything else is going to be an illusion!

4. Paint Jam
Paint Jam is like any other jam, except that it has an artistic side to it. The event will be bunch of artists gathering at a public place and showcasing their artistic skills by painting in front of a live audience. This can be great for a promotional activity, too!. People do actually love to see the art being made, as much as they love the end product.

5. Hackathon
Hackathons have joined the league of events that every technocrat looks forward to, these days. The concept is simple – find solutions to a given problem or set of problems within a stipulated time period by putting in continuous, non stop (literally!) efforts. A hackathon can be any duration long, from a 24 hour non-stop action, to the one extending to several days. Be sure to arrange desks, chargers and a lot of coffee.

6. Roast
The concept is still very alien to many, and you can encash on it. A roast is a comedy event intended to amuse the event’s audience at the expense of a specific individual or group. Organise the roast of a local hero, a politician or a performer and it’s going to be super successful. And yes, it doesn’t always have to be as dirty as the AIB one!

7. Webinar
Web+Seminar=Webinar (wasn’t it too obvious?). Webinars are the best solution to the constraints of space and time. All you would need is subscription to a good online software to organise your webinars. Market the online event hard, and deliver value. Your audience will be happy.

8. Kidult
Again, it’s Kid+Adult=Kidult. You can organise an event where adults would enjoy a day like kids. They would come dressed as kids, will play the kids’ games and have fun. The time travelling experience can be as much fun as you want it to be, and will ignite a nostalgia of the ‘good old days’.

9. Book Barter
This event will be every book lover’s rejoice. Invite a community, ask them to bring along their stock, and help them partake in the exchange. You never know who can give you the book you always wanted. Who knows, you might come across a book that can change your life! Book lovers will love it.

10. Fandom Gathering
A ‘Fandom Gathering’ is a small gathering of the admirers of a particular personality, art, culture or place. This can be a good platform to have open ended discussions and meet people with similar interests. You don’t need much resources or investment for such an event.

11. Secret
Sometimes, not revealing the concept of the event, coupled with some shameless marketing creates so much curiosity amongst people that they would actually buy tickets to know what it’s all about! Make sure that your event actually has a substance, or get ready to face some serious ire afterwards.

Have some more amazing event ideas? Put your creativity to work, and come up with event ideas of your own! Do let us know in the comments.

An Ode to the Colder Weather – Nite Owl Festival at Select Citywalk Saket

What – Nite Owl Festival
When – November 24th – 26th | 12pm – 12am
Where – DLF Place, Saket
How to Get There – Saket Metro Station, Yellow Line

The weather has taken a turn towards the colder end and all of Delhi couldn’t be happier. Well, at least most of it. With the smog almost cleared up, it’s time again to get out of our hoods (or blankets!) and head out. What better way to chill than shopping and food? And what better place than DLF Place, Saket to do it at? DLF Place just celebrated its ten year anniversary and has now come up with the amazing Nite Owl Festival for its second edition. The Festival offers everything you would want at a night out. From scrumptious delights to the Little Flea market and the added joy of having a nip in the air. The Nite Owl is a three day extravagant affair that starts from the 24th of November, Friday. The great thing about this festival is that it lasts an entire day up until 12 am. So if you do wish to spend the entire weekend sleeping, you can still catch the event going on late in the evening.

The Flea Market will be brimming with beautiful little things you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Stuff ranging from Home Decor to Indo-Western Clothing to Chunky Jewellery. It’s a perfect destination for all your fashionista friends.

And of course there will be Food Stalls for every taste palate. Sumptuous momos of more than a hundred types are likely to be present. Okay, maybe not a hundred. But you do get our point, right? Food of all kinds, shapes and sizes will be at your avail.

There is always a cherry on the top and here it will be the soulful live band performances. Groove to the rhythm of acoustic times as you wander around or while you shop.
The bands slated to perform are Zephyr, Alankaar, Savarveda, Rocknaama, and more.

So head out to DLF Place to destress your nerves and be a little bit self indulgent this weekend! There’s more to life than chasing targets and attending meetings, after all.

Best of Everything and Everywhere – The annual India International Trade Fair is here!

By Kanika Oberoi
Best of Everything and Everywhere – The annual India International Trade Fair is here!

What – Trade Fair – Participating nations showcase the best of their commercial products.
When – November 14-27th (Opens for general public on November 18th)
Where – Pragati Maidan
How To Get There – Pragati Maidan Metro, Blue Line

The mother of all shopping events – The India International Trade Fair is back to town! Called just the Trade Fair by the common folk, this extravagant affair is a must go to event for people of every age. The mega event is happening for the 37th consecutive time, this year and of course at the most amazing of venues – Pragati Maidan.
The event will be open for general public from the 18th November onwards. The much hyped affair lands right on the expectations every single year and this year it’s going to be no different. This year’s central theme is Start Up India : Stand Up India, the scheme launched by the central government to boost manufacturing of goods in the country and create more job opportunities. Expect to see sparkling garments and accessories, luscious fabrics, pristine artworks and sculptures, woodwork and furniture and our personal favourite stationery. All of these things in forms you probably haven’t seen them in. The biggest USP of the Trade Fair, the factor that has made it immensely successful and universally loved is that it brings unimaginable variety to the public from across the globe at a single event. With the wedding season in full swing, the Trade Fair is where you will find every little thing on your list and more. And there of course is Food. Savoury bites at every nook and corner making the walking worth every little bit.
If you do intend on going, here are few tips to help you navigate through the entire space –

  1. The Metro Station gate No. 10 Opens right inside the venue so make sure you get down from the right exit from the Metro Station.
  2. The timing for the event is 9:30 am to 7:30 pm. While evenings might suit the working people, prefer going in the afternoons on the weekdays.
  3. Carry as less as you can and preferably an empty bag for you to easily carry the things you buy there.
  4. The online tickets portal will be live soon. Keep checking this space for the updates. Tickets will also be available at various Metro Stations and Ticket Counters at the Pragati Maidan Gates.
  5. While there are going to be eating joints in abundance, make sure you carry a water bottle with you.

The partner country for this year is Vietnam while the country in focus is slated to be Kyrgyzstan. The event however will be conducted in lesser space than the previous years due to the ongoing renovation and construction works. Despite this little glitch, the expected footfall is still a humongous 6-7 lakh.

So go ahead, experience the frenzy that is the India International Trade Fair.
