Probably the 3 days of SF will be the best time you spend in 1st year of KGP. SF is the annual social & cultural festival organised in month of Jan. & is one of the largest student run college fests in India. The flagship events of SF are - Nukkad, Shuffle, Wildfire, Rangmanch, Centrifuge, Lake Side Dreams, etc. Besides this there is a Perpz stage which is an all day dance floor with a DJ, that attracts huge crowds. The biggest event in Spring Fest is "STAR-NIGHT" which usually involve live concerts by famous Indian artists like Farhan Live, Salim-Sulaiman, Pritam, Kailash Kher, KK, S. P.

Bands like Pentagram, Swarathma, Underground Authority, Kryptos, Parikrama, Euphoria, Indian Ocean, Strings , Spunk etc. have also been performing here. So many participants and audience comes from different colleges to enjoy SF, their arrival is the favourite thing for the boys, you know what I mean :) . One thing that may be I didn't mention is the ratio of girl:boy here is 1:10. And now you definitely know what I mean :P . There is so much excitement and enthusiasm for the fest even before its commencement. Every single person goes out in the streets, they sing, they dance, they eat & they don't sleep. Nights are spent on scholar's avenue, days are busy with all the events going on. Sometimes one is not even able to decide which events should they attend. You better search on Youtube for SF and watch some documentaries then only you'll get some feel of it.
