Mood Indigo Day 4: The last day of the fest attracted the most footfall and had Amit Trivedi performing at the ProNite finale

MoodI continued in the same vein as city students took full advantage of the extended weekend to attend the last day of Asia's largest cultural festival, featuring popular names in the spheres of art and music.


The day opened with finals of Sanskriti - The Indian classical dance competition. The Convocation Hall came alive with the colours of the rich Indian heritage in its diversity as the participants displayed various dance forms like Lavani, Bharathanatyam, Kathak, and Garba.

In the PC Saxena Auditorium, the Mime Time finals saw the contestants rise up to the challenge of telling stories without uttering a word. The NCC Grounds reverberated with soulful harmonising voices as acapella groups vied with one another to claim the top spot in the finals of Concord.

The finals of Mantra – the Hindi rock band competition – showed that Hindi music is more than just Bollywood. Meanwhile, aspiring rappers and hip-hop musicians gave their all to win the finals of the prestigious MI’NEM competition. Following this, street dancers competed against one another to win the finals of Beat The Street, the street dance competition.

The last competition in the four-day fest was 'Humor Us', where the finalists tried to outdo each other with witty quips and one-liners.

In the afternoon, Katie Oliviera dazzled the audience with her thrilling fire acts. One of the main highlights of the fest, the International Music Festival, drew to a close with some stunning performances with The Kutle Khan Project, a Rajasthani folk act. PEER, an indie rock band from the Netherlands rocked the stage with their performance, that can be best summed up as energetic indie rock combined with catchy hooks.

The final IMF act of Mood Indigo was truly representative of the theme - La Fête Carnaval - as Rishabh Seen Collective brought in elements of music from all over the world and beautifully integrated it with Indian classical notes.

The first edition of Eloquence, Mood Indigo’s brand new litfest, drew to a successful close with a slam poetry session by three of India’s biggest names in the art - Gaurav Tripathi, who is a corporate filmmaker by profession, Yahya Bootwala, and Aranya Johar. 

After the three poets performed, they fielded questions from the members of the audience who were excited to know about their experiences that inspired them to become poets and how being one has affected them.

HumorFest, a platform where the audience can see some of the best comic acts in town live in action, ended with a bang as Biswa Kalyan Rath treated the audience in the jam-packed Convocation Hall to one of the best evenings of their lives, drawing upon his experiences as a student to crack jokes that resonated with the viewers, which was largely composed of student lives.

The fest ended with fireworks as people thronged the Gymkhana Ground for Popular Nite, the fourth and the biggest of the Pro Nites, that was headlined by Amit Trivedi, the versatile singer, and composer.
