    Fest Info:  The lush green North East seems almost surreal during spring. However, the centre of buzz and
    eccentricity every spring is ‘Alcheringa’, the annual cultural extravaganza of IIT Guwahati. Deriving its
    name from the Australian slang for ‘eternal dream time’, Alcheringa started sixteen years ago with
    just a few colleges from Guwahati and participants mostly from IIT Guwahati itself. In its sixteen
    years of existence, Alcheringa, fondly called as ‘Alcher’, has grown leaps and bounds to become one
    of the largest festivals in India and the numero uno in North East India.

    is nothing short of a visual delicacy for its witnesses. With Bollywood giants like, KK, Shankar Ehsaan
    Loy, Shaan, Sonu Nigam, to world renowned artists like, Pandit Vishwamohan Bhatt, Giuliano
    Modarelli, Alistair Macsween, coupled with international acts like, Eluvietie, Orphaned Land and
    Motherjane, gracing Alcheringa in the past, Alcheringa has established itself as a mainstream festival
    among the youth of our great nation.
    But it’s not just the artists that make Alcheringa big, but also those who come faithfully each year to
    witness it and be a part of it. Alcheringa aims at inviting all possible talents in the wide cultural arts
    genre. Each year the stage of Alcheringa is ignited by performances from the goliaths of music,
