Leading telecom brand, Idea, has announced the launch of the 5th edition of its popular series, Idea Rocks India, in a new avatar and on a larger scale. This season offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for musical aficionados across the country to showcase their singing talent, and share the platform with some of the biggest music stars in India – Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy; and Mika.

Conceptualised in 2005, Idea Rocks India is now in its 5th edition and this season it comes in an all new avatar, with multiple new elements. For the first time ever, this musical extravaganza has undertaken an adventurous path of allowing participants to audition through four different media – Digital, IVR, Radio and On-Ground - thereby reaching out to a much broader spectrum of audience. This season will witness the hunt for budding ‘Rockstars’ from across over 60 towns and cities, and give them an opportunity to ‘Rock with the Stars’. This year’s special, IVR based auditioning process, will give a chance to over 116 million Idea customers to showcase their singing talent.


A team of 4 judges with extensive music knowledge and experience will filter the participants to final 50 for each city; who would be further filtered to 5 participants by a panel of local music academicians and popular music personalities. Keeping its brand promise – “An Idea can change your life” – Idea will make a dream come true for the Final Winner chosen by the Celebrity Judges - Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy Trio and Mika – by giving him/her a platform to perform with them at key locations across the country.

Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular said, “Music is core to Idea’s brand building and customer connect strategy. The concept, reach and brand integration of Idea Rocks India (IRI) is unparalleled in India. We are now taking it a level higher to engage with a wider audience and hunt for talent from deeper pockets of the country, utilising both modern and traditional media such as Digital, IVR and On-Ground. With over 60 events, over a period of two months, this year IRI will reach out to millions of Indians across the country.”
