Fests are most famous because of the celebrity performances. But it varies from college to college. The celebrity performances depend upon the fund allocation. Fund allocation remains a cause of worry for the fest organizers from start to finish. No matter how much funds they are receiving, it always falls short. The cost of the fest consists of the cost of all the fees, raw materials, decoration, and whatnot. You must be wondering if the fund allocation is never sufficient, how are these lavish fests organized? To spill the tea here, the organizers step out for sponsors.

The fests are a great way to celebrate and gain exposure. Especially if you happen to be an organizer of the fest be it central, society, or departmental. Everywhere you work till evening, you handle a team, a cohort and you struggle for finance. It’s a great lesson in time management as you have to be very efficient. Handling the event, participants, and all the chores comes with the cost of major stress. One works under tight guidelines and limited resources. You need to manage everything within a given timeframe and resources. The event gets organized with a team. Team spirit, struggles, and conflicts, everything is treasured. If done well, this management adds weight to your corporate resume as well.
