Illustrious personalities such as Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan, Mani Shankar (Bollywood director), Chandni Sahgal (MTV India ex- Country Head) and VJ Bani (MTV host) have graced the fest.
In 2012, we were the proud hosts to an official pre-Sunburn Event, the first ever Sunburn Campus, the electro-dance music festival that has been a rage all over the country.
This year Waves is expecting a footfall of 40,000+ with over 4,000 participants from all over India. In the midsts of all the competition and excitement, Waves promises you a dose of laughter with ‘All India Bakchod’ performing in the form of hilarious, unapologetically bold jokes with a clever, sardonic sense of humor. One can expect them to set the college auditorium ablaze with witty jokes and hilarious anecdotes and send the audience into fits of laughter. Added to that, Waves ‘14 shall host one of the most popular musicians of the country, the singer, the music composer, the legend who brought the country together as everyone sang to the tunes of Dil Chahta Hain, Lakshya, Taare Zameen Par, Rock On and Wake Up Sid. The one and only - Shankar Mahadevan! Femina Miss India - Miss Shobhita Dhulipala shall be gracing the festival as a judge of Campus Princess event at Waves ‘14.
