BNU Bestival

We go again! With Bestival 2015. Beaconhouse National University is proud to present its fourth installment of an eagerly awaited annual event. This year’s theme will especially tickle all you Science fiction fans out there. STEAMPUNK! What is that? Well in one word “INTERSTELLAR”. It’s dabbling with the machine, the invention which rocked the 19’nth century, and started a revolution, which has never looked back since. This revolution of the machine which started all those centuries back is still going strong, so much so that it has captured the imagination of every man, post modernity. This year we’ve taken it up a notch and will be expecting ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking from all you creative people out there. This theme represents the advancement of human existence and the dilemmas that come with it. Like our previous events this too will follow the interdisciplinary genre from music, to performance to film to sports. It’s as big as it gets and we can’t wait for it to start.

This year BNU Bestival will be commencing from 19th Feb to 22nd Feb.

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all participating teams at the BNU Bestival’15. I must begin by congratulating the BNU Bestival organizing teams and the BNU Student Body for arranging yet another exciting event this year for their fellow students from other institutions across Pakistan.
The BNU Bestival is an endeavor of BNU students, management and faculty with the financial support and sponsorship of our friends and partners from the corporate sector. It is an initiative to promote cultural exchanges across institutions to provide students from diverse backgrounds a platform to experience the environs of a Liberal Arts university by participating in the core disciplines offered by BNU in a co-curricular setting.
I hope the broad array of events put together by your fellow students during the four day Bestival live up to your expectations and provide you with an opportunity to not only have loads of fun but also learn from these exchanges.

It is a matter of great pride for me and the BNU student body that BNU Bestival, in just a span of four years, has become an event eagerly awaited by so many. What is more reassuring is the fact that despite a steady passing over of the baton of leadership each year from one generation of students to another; Bestival has successfully maintained its uniqueness and distinction. This year, the Bestival features the theme of SteamPunk and celebrates the spirit among the youth for taking charge and making a difference in the society. As I welcome you to the BNU Bestival’15, I hope that during the course of the four days of the event we all come together in a unifying spirit to hone our potentialities and learn from each other.
