Some of the bands’ names were Imgo, Element, Blast boys, Bimb Music and many more. The bands wowed the crowd with their performances that consisted of several music genres such as Rock and Roll, Hip hop and dancing segments. On Monday, the bands performed, letting the crowd vote at the end for their favorite bands who were supposed to be the winners and perform on the next day.
