The big bang. Life as we knew it began.  There was the biggest party ever known till date because man had conquered the universe. But in 2012, the universe conquered man. There will be the biggest party ever known till date because life as we know it is ending. The big bang.

The Cultural Committee of IIM Kozhikode is proud to bring to you the first glimpse of Echoes 2012. In keeping with the times, our theme for the fest is “The Big Bang” – one last party to celebrate the end of the world, and we intend to do it in style.

Echoes 2012 is the flagship cultural fest of IIM Kozhikode, scheduled for 13th-15th January 2012. Located on a scenic hillside near the town of Calicut (Kozhikode), IIM K is one of the premier B-Schools in the country, as well as one of the fastest growing. With over 5000 students participating annually, extensive media coverage both on traditional news media as well as social networks, and association with the biggest names in the corporate world, the fest is an eagerly awaited one, and this year promises to be no different.

Echoes 2012, one of the biggest cultural festivals in India, includes a variety of events that span a diverse range of categories. Witness the gods of rock from across India at Hilltop Jam and Altar of Rock, set the catwalk on fire at Ramp-age (the Fashion Show), let the spirit of dance take control at ConcorDance and Toesteppers, and join us for an eclectic range of activities across various various categories.

Along with traditional favourites, we’ve got a whole lot more lined up for you. Stay on your feet with our daily informals happening throughout the fest, and watch out for the mega prelude – our online competitions, where the Facebookers and Twitterati have a chance to win big. With events designed to challenge, engross, and entertain, we can assure you the experience is one you can’t miss.

For those looking beyond the competition, we have the biggest names in Indian entertainment coming to blow your mind. The lush greens and scenic vista of the IIMK campus have hosted the likes of Indian Ocean, Parikrama and Euphoria, and this time it’s going to be even bigger. Watch this space for more details!

And just in case that isn’t enough, we’ve got even more lined up. From celebrity workshops to all-night events to adventure sports, there’s never a dull moment during the fest.

The Big Bang begins 13th January 2012, and you’re invited to the last great party.
