RedX hosted the 2018 iteration of the annual Sunburn Campus concert on the 20th of January at the MIT Hockey Ground. With the line up featuring EDM artists DJ Shaan and Siana Catherine, it was definitely a night to remember. The concert drew students from institutions all over Manipal.
Students started streaming into the MIT hockey ground early in the evening to secure a spot right in front of the stage, closest to the artists. The venue was adroitly set up to resemble an actual Sunburn concert. The event drew hundreds of students, all pumped to dance the night away. Food stalls were placed strategically near the entrance of the venue to cater to the appetites of the audience.
The concert started around 7 p.m. and continued for 3 hours, during the course of which the crowd was mesmerized by the artists. They were talented and had the entire place throbbing with energy. Many popular numbers were played and the crowd loved every moment of the concert. DJ Shaan also gave out boxes of pizza and shirts to the audience.
It was evident that a lot of hard work was involved in ensuring that Sunburn Campus was an absolute hit. From selling tickets at info desks to staying up all night long to work on publicity strategies, everything had been meticulously planned out. The artists also loved the audience and seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed putting up a show. With university always bringing a massive amount of stress, Sunburn Campus 2018 was definitely a much needed breather.
