LeGala and Strawberry Fields
Organiser: National Law School India University, Bangalore
LeGala is National Law School’s annual inter-collegiate literary & cultural fest, which was started in 1996. It attracts participation from colleges all over Bangalore as well as out-station teams for events like quizzing, music, theatre and dance. NLS students don a purely organizational role by way of raising sponsorships, creating publicity and organizing dozens of competitive as well as informal activities as part of the festival. In order to maintain impartiality, the host institution does not participate in the competitive activities.
Strawberry Fields is India’s largest student-organized rock show and is held concurrently with LeGala. The last few editions had more than 40 participating bands from all over South Asia and crowds in excess of 10,000. Its past 10 editions have served as launch-pads for prominent Indian bands like Moksha, Thermal and a Quarter, Motherjane, Zero and Medicis among others. The music festival started its existence under the name of Lawcommotion in 1996 and subsequently took on its present name.
