" Our journey to the oldest IIT in the
country that is IIT Kharagpur was one of the most memorable and to add on to that a very memorable gig. We loved playing
for the crowd and we thank each and everyone who stayed back to watch us despite all the delays. There were absolutely no
complaints in terms of Hospitality and the Management. We would like to thank each and every committee member who was part
of the management team and the hospitality team for seeing to it that our stay and the show is smooth. "
" We had an awesome time at SF2015.
It always feels good to be one of the headliners at a festival of this magnitude. And it was great to see a full army of
fans present at the fest. The crowd was out of the world, the experience was overwhelming. We would definitely pen SF2015
down as one of our most memorable performances ever. Going by the response we received after the performance, it seems we
might come back next year too. "

"We had a blast! Thanks, IIT-KGP"

"It's always a pleasure to play to a young college crowd, more so at an esteemed institution as an IIT. But playing for Spring Fest 2014 without doubt exceeded all our expectations. The 20000 strong crowd not only enjoyed the music dished out but took active part by singing along all the tracks the duo performed. IIT Kharagpur Spring fest was our 3rd concert in a span of 3 days, but it rejuvenated us by the sheer energy the audience exuded. We look forward to visit IIT kharagpur many more times in the years to come."
