Arguably the biggest rock event to hit poor ol' Hyderabad. Since, no, Iron Maiden and Linkin Park ain't coming here.
Hero Honda, in association with DNA Networks, is organising the South Zone Regional competition of Campus Rock Idols, on 20th January, at Durgam Cheruvu. The headline act will be performed by The Synaps and Galeej Gurus.
Campus Rock Idols is an inter-college music competition and is one of the biggest rock contests held every year in India. It is one event where college bands from across the country compete with each other, vying to be the best rock band in the country.
The competition begins at the city level, where college bands within the city and neighbouring cities compete. Winners from several cities compete to be the regional/zonal winner; and the best regional bands compete at the national level where the winner will be crowned Campus Rock Idol.
The regional rounds will be held at Bangalore, Hyderabad and Manipal for the South Zone; Shillong & Kolkata for the East Zone; Ahmedabad & Pune for the West Zone; and Indore, Chandigarh and Delhi for the North Zone. The final will be on 11th February at Pune. Last year The Superfuzz Bigmuff was crowned the Campus Rock Idol.
The high point of this contest is that the winning campus band will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform alongside international rock icons who come to perform in India, such as Iron Maiden, Linkin Park and Nickelback amongst others. In addition to the honor of playing alongside the great musicians, cash prizes will be awarded to the winners, including multimedia equipment for the college management of the winning bands.
The entry to the competition is by free passes available at all branches of Planet M outlets. For further details, please call the venue on 6659-0000.
