Looks like concerts are not yet a thing of the past and the world has lit up again. Immediately after the Covid end after three years, The Millennium Education Group organized a concert for its students, teachers and families in the twin cities as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week Celebrations 2021. After the pandemic, the youth really need a break and come back to life. Dr Faisal Mushtaq CEO and Founder of The Millennium Education Group said the concert was organized as part of GEW celebrations where the youth was engaged in entrepreneurial talks and business expos. The whole idea was based on bringing in the youth on one single platform and spreading the message of Thinking Big and Thinking for Change. The musical extravaganza made a mark and last impact in the twin cities where a crowd of 3000 youth and families had gathered to witness the legendary Atif Aslam. The concert was hosted by the super energetic host Shadzad and the ever-green Natasha known as Natty followed by the young Shiza.
The concert was held at Rubaesh Marque. When entered, it seemed to be business as usual, with main sponsors showcasing their stalls. The Mega Event organized by The Millennium Education Group was sponsored by JS Bank as its exclusive partner, powered by MGC Developments and sponsored by Ashar Stores , SWL as travel partners and Islamabad Chamber of Commerce , The Indus Entrepreneurship and National Incubation Centre as the knowledge Partners.
Just as one entered the main hall one could witness flashing lights and heavy base. It was a full house, and the ensemble was large. The set up was nice; the lighting and speakers were set in a way that would not interfere with the audience’s view of the band, and the stage fit the band perfectly.
Groups of students to teachers were swarming the turntables, grooving to the beat as though they were in Tomorrowland with David Guetta playing a set. It was heartening to witness such a huge crowd for the first time after covid; heartening because there aren’t a lot of avenues for constructive entertainment in this country along with many girls and females being part of the crowd.
The concert’s first performance was the Lahore based Dj Duo Some What Super. The youngsters played their unique sound that combines folk tradition with modern sound, and one could see the crowd dancing and swaying to their beats. After setting the tone for the concert and with the crowd fully charged in came the iconic Atif Aslam. Known for his soulful performances, Atif Aslam performed and sang some of his greatest hits. Throughout the event Atif Aslam sang a mix of his old and new songs with the crowd mostly singing with him.
It was a fun filled November evening which was thoroughly enjoyed by Millennials, families and teachers and a much needed one after the Covid.
