A 3-day medley of dazzling lights, booming melodies and limitless fun in the chill, tropical environs of Goa, is ‘Waves’. BITS Goa’s  annual cultural festival ‘Waves’ themed ‘Tides of Time’ will be witnessing a footfall of 40,000+ millennial from 4th – 6th November at the college’s scenic campus. Celebrating its 10 year anniversary, Waves 2016 promises to catapult you back to your fond childhood and to nostalgic memories of the sheer adventure of the 90s. With big names such singer-composer Amit Trivedi and Raghu Ram of Roadies fame, the glitzy Tomorrowland-esque nights during Waves will provide the perfect stage for the youth to let loose. Waves lives up to its reputation as a majestic cultural fest, with the immensely grandiose Big-3 events. Be it Natyanjali, a face-off between the some of the nation’s most talented dance troupes, FashP, fashion parades that ooze glamour and star stunning youngsters modelling high end fashion, or Mr and Ms Waves, the ultimate test of being the crowd favourite, judged by known names from the industry, these events are certainly not to be missed, and feature immensely talented participants from colleges across the country. Furthermore, the slapstick comedy nights will have you rolling off your seats as top notch comedians and artistes perform stand-up routines. A sure notch off the bucket list for hard-core music aficionados is Searock, the much talked about rock showdown with the country’s best rock bands that have already blasted their way through the national eliminations. For the intellectuals, Contention and Moot Court witness cutthroat debaters making eloquent speeches and logical arguments, while Culturals and Informals abound in hordes as flash events such as Poetry Slams, Open Mic and JAMs ensure that there is never a dull moment for any Waves attendee. The very special Waves Open Quiz, photography and art contests, and innumerable more such events are conducted all day (and all night!) long – and truly offer something for everyone to participate in. For those in a mood to own the streets, ‘Sizzle’ and ‘Just Duet’ pit you up against breath-taking dancers right under the moonlight, while Drama and Mime enthusiasts are in for a treat too with events like Skime, Rangmanch and Nukkad Natak promising to engage. And if the plethora of events and the nights weren’t enough, wandering magicians, exotic performers, thrilling Virtual Reality related activities in The Adventure Zone and flash mobs are just a few of the multiple fascinating delights that pop up to keep one abuzz.

Still not sold? Remember this – whenever you feel like having a quiet moment to buzz down from all the overwhelmingly magical moments, lights, music and lip-smacking delights around you, don’t forget that you are in Goa – and you can always make a quick dash to a serene beach or watch the stars whilst lying on the road on a moonlit night, and let Goa do the rest!
