The year 2015 promises to be bigger in all respects. So hold your breath and stay tuned, for the countdown to the "Eternal Dreamtime" begins now!
"Music" the word in itself is one complete mode of communication, a medium for the expressions. There is no one nowhere who can ever describe what music is. For some it is rock and roll, for some it is Metal, for some it is the Blues. Music in itself has no bounds no definitions. As Friedrich Nietzsche would say "Without music, life would be a mistake."

Remember the first time you walked on the stage? Remember that nervous bead of sweat that trickled down your brow when you looked at the crowd? Remember your heart pounding? .... That feeling still gives you the chills, doesn't it? But then the music starts. And you blank out. The world stops mattering. All that remains is just you, and the music. The crowd roars. The halls thunder. The lights flash... They see you spinning. They see you prancing. They see you move with the grace of a swan, with that exquisite expression on your face. But, little do they know, that you’ve been ferried somewhere far, far away, deep in a trance, lost in an Alcheringa!

The North-east witnesses a colossal fest on the onset of spring each year. 2014 was no different. Alcheringa scaled itself up, and raised the bar higher with this edition. Themed as "Atlantis" this year, the fest drew huge crowds, exceeding 50,000 from the North-east and beyond. Guwahati witnessed scintillating performances from the legendary Michael Angelo Batio and Undying Inc, thrilling metal purists of the region. The highlight of the Bollywood night, Crescendo was a mesmerising performance from Shilpa Rao - who wooed the crowd with an amazing performance. Villalobos Brothers from Mexico highlighted "Saaz", the Classical night and pretty much knocked the crowd out!
Alcheringa Atlantis also saw the maiden edition of the IITG Model United Nations. Headbangers got their piece with a three day long Rock-o-Phonix, and the crowd revelled at the astounding performances in Electric heels, and the jaw dropping models participating in Haute Couture and Femina Miss India (judged by former Miss India Earth - Miss Shobhitha Dhulipala). The 4 day long fest marked one of the most happening dates of the North-east, and aims at getting bigger and better with each coming edition.
