  • Battle of Bands – Rock, Metal, Drums! The pounding and the beats! Sure, it’s everyone’s favorite.

Thomso’17 launched the Battle of Bands, a Hindi rock band competition. One of the very lucrative competitions, BoB, as it is passionately called, is popular for the quality of the music on show and the accolades that the winners receive.

This is a shout out to the drummers and band members out there, who have in themselves, the potential to make it big.

Mary Jane Green Fields – This one is for the Rebels. The libertines who live by their rationale and their passion for music.

Thomso presents MJGF (Mary Jane Green Fields). The prime platform for rock bands from across the country to assert their dominance in front of an audience of 10,000+ listeners.

Music is a form of expression, the most persuading form, we believe. So we present this incredible opportunity for all those who bleed music.

And this time you’ve got the chance of making it big.

The victors of this competition will have the chance to win the prize worth 80k. So this is not an opportunity to be missed out on!

Sargam – “Music is a form of art,

Which goes in the ears and then straight to heart.”

Music unwraps the heart, sings out the prayers, opens up the soul and makes the spirit dance. Sargam- the premium music contest of IITR- paves the way for all the crooning voices, talented instrumentalists and wandering musicians to shine in the music genres of their own choices. An opportunity to own the stage and compete with the elite. So come, give your best and steal the show.

So, if the magnificence and splendour of Thomso captivated you, then register yourself soon at our website and be a part of one of the largest college festivals of the country.
