February, a month of the year 2018 when the VITians are not concerned about their CATs, a month of the year when the Riviera 2018 hype is about their favourite stars coming to the VIT Riviera 2018 and rocking the night for them, where they get to see them from like 20 yards away. However, is the hype worth it? Are the innumerable sleepless nights justified for VIT Riviera 2018 the cultural fest of VIT Vellore? So, let’s just start with a bit of history.

The Riviera Hype: Justified or Overrated?

The first annual event of VIT Riviera dated back in February 2002. It is termed as the ‘Sports and Cultural Carnival of the Vellore Institute of Technology’. The event, which has a mix of sports, quizzes, fine arts, music and dance, has always been the most awaited fest of every VITian, and why not, it gets BIGGER each year! The number of stars which feature in Riviera just keep on increasing. The craze and excitement each year is just worth all the fun and frolics that the VITians organize for all.

In VIT Riviera 2018, Adventure Sports like bowling, ludo to the intensity filled gaming events to the fun events like the pillow fight, from covering gaming events conducted by the TAG club to the fun-filled events conducted by the Hindu Education Plus Club, starting from Spin-A-Yarn to Total Recall, it is worth it to participate in each of the events! And the superstars of Bollywood, Tollywood and all the woods just make the Riviera 2018 a thousand times special!! If you ask me, who all have featured here as guests, each name will only bring excitement, relief and happiness to your grades scarred stressed faces (unless you are a 9 pointer). :P

From the beginnings, the Riviera never disappointed. Starting from The Effekt Krew in 2002, the event has seen starts of the rockband Moksh, Vishal Shekhar, Saleem Merchant, Shankar Mahadevan, Benny Dayal, Vasundhara Das, Sunidhi Chauhan, Parikrama, DJ Llyod, KK, Arjun Kapoor, Ayushman Khurana, Armaan Malik, Farhan Akhtar, Ravichandran Ashwin and many many more celebrities have already been a part of the mega event.

Riviera 2018 Proshows

This year in Riviera 2018 we are having stars like Badshah, Vijay Prakash, Shirley Setia, Saindhavi, Amit Trivedi, Frisk Factor, DJ Zaeden, Rahul Subramaniam, Sahil Shah and well I can write a fifty more words just writing the names but the excitement will only grow! So, what are you guys waiting for! Life definitely gives you reasons to be in the soup for uncountable reasons, no doubt, but this Riviera 2018, life is giving you chances to mend yourself for another year of hardship, sacrifices and hard work (before the next Riviera arrives, obviously!). The only regret that you are going to have is – why didn’t you shout 10 more decibels more, why didn’t you dance more when your friends will be taking your support to walk back to the hostel!

Is the Riviera hype justified?

So coming back to the question, Is the Riviera 2018 hype justified? It sure shot is! And why not, this time it is looking more promising, more fun-filled and grander than all the VIT Rivieras that we have had earlier, given the number of stars, number of events that we are going to enjoy! So be ready!
