Rhapsody is one of the much awaited fest of Delhi University. With approximately 10,000 people attending the fest, Rhapsody 2016 automatically became prodigious and spectacular. It was organised on two days – 28th and 29th January.
With lesser crowd on Day 1, Day 2 saw a huge increase with more number of students attending the fest from different colleges. Well, the reason for this was the presence of none other than “Guru Randhawa” himself!
The first day kick started with the performance by ”Riyaaz-The Indian Music Society”. The Guest of Honour was Mr.Mehraj Hassan, and Ms. Nisha Singh was the Chief Guest of the event. The inauguration ceremony was followed by inspiring words from the prestigious guests.

Winners of these Programmes:

This was the most awaited and exciting part of the fest. Rockstrings band performed live in the afternoon and gave a boggling and phenomenal show. The guitarist of Aryans Band left no stone unturned in entertaining the audience.
Finally, it was time for the star of the fest ”Guru Randhawa”. The eagerness was clearly visible in the crowd. As soon as he came on the stage, the crowd got extremely excited. Indeed, he set the stage on fire. Guru sang his well-known songs such as “Patola”, “Outfit”, and his latest release “Yaar mod do”. The audience remained engrossed in his engaging personal talks and awesome performances.
The students enjoyed a lot and the efforts of the Student Union were clearly visible. The fest was definitely one which no one can afford to miss. The fest-season is on and if the beginning was so good, then I am sure you can expect much more from other fests too.
