What would you do if you could get the chance of enduring the

culture of places throughout the world, without actually travelling in

just two days!

On this very note, we introduce the theme of this

year’s Odyssey the third of its kind with

Around the World in Two Days

as our theme.

“I may be a shallow river consumed in shadows,

But now is my time to reach the sun.

For once I am off,

And whole world is my ground,

Today is my chance to be a bird.

I am free to live my life,

For a day around the world”



Nirvana nights have definitely been the highlights of the previous

editions of Odyssey. We have witnessed a huge crowd just for the

performances of nationally celebrated Euphoria and Antariksh i

previous editions.

We present you the perfect stress busters in the most gratifying

form this time with some awestruck performances by the one and only THE LOCAL TRAIN,India’s No.1 Rock band & the new face of Hindi rock,on Day 2. The songs by the band like ‘Choo lo’ and ‘Dil Mere’ will make you enter the state of nirvana.

And for surprise element, we present you Progressive Brothers on Day 1. Progressive Brothers have DJ’ed at India’s biggest festivals like Sunburn Festival, Vh1 Supersonic, Enchanted Valley Carnival. They have shared the stage and played alongside the likes of David Guetta, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Bassjackers, R3HAB and many others.
