Crossroads, the annual cultural fest of SRCC is the Big Bang of Delhi University. It has a monopoly in terms of being the only night fest in DU. Held in the heart of the North Campus, it attracts around 10,000 people over a period of four days. The days are packed with management events and informal competitions and the star performances in the evening are a delight. The day events see heavy participation from India’s best colleges and students across all streams.
Business Conclave, the biggest management fest at the undergraduate level, seeks participation from students from esteemed institutes across India who battle it out to prove their mettle in mind games. The fest also has a plethora of informal competitions like treasure hunt and scavenger hunt to give the students an adrenaline rush and add to the fun quotient. For the adventure seekers, the fest offers an opportunity to experience zorbing, rock climbing, Burma bridge and flying fox. Sports lovers can participate in a one-of-its-kind street football competition. If you are not too keen on outdoor activities then the Gaming Zone offers a variety of games on LAN and the opportunity to compete with other gaming addicts in the gaming competition. No matter who you are, the variety of events on offer during the fest will ensure that you find something to excite you.
The setting sun brings with it a delightful time for the revellers. The evening events range from fashion shows to rock concerts by esteemed artists. Woodstock – The Rock Competition sees metaphorical revival of the legendary rock festival amidst mesmerised crowds and the best bands. Bands battle it out for the big prize in quintessential rock style. The finalists get the opportunity to open for the celebrity band, which adjudges the winner.
Inferno – Western Dance sets the stage on fire with teams from colleges across the nation vying for the title of being the best Western Dance troupe in the country. In the Fashion Night, models sizzle the ramp with the hottest trends of the times. Random Collision — War Of The DJs is the night every music junkie waits for. The best mixers in town are in their element to lure the crowds on to the dance floor. Scratching discs and wooing the crowds with flair, the DJs bring down the house and give each other a run for their money. For its energy and music, Random Collisions promises to be every clubber’s dream destination.
Last, but by all means the best night of the fest is Encore – the pop night. Encore features one of the top artists of the country in a scintillating celebration of music, glamour. If KK’s performance last year is any indicator, this night is sure to bring the whole university to a standstill with thousands in the college and roads outside swinging to the tunes played.
With such a legacy, Crossroads 09 being held from 18th-21st December is surely the most awaited event on the DU calendar.
