The musical show started with Rang – the runners up of ‘Nescafe Get Set Rock’- covering legendary Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish you were here’. Afterwards they performed Gun’s n Roses’s ‘Don’t cry’ and two original tracks. Their performance ended with a cover of Avenged Sevenfold’s ‘So far away’.

Afterwards, a break from music commenced as the organizers recognized ‘top contributors’ in the group, and brought them on stage. The recognition marks the most active members of the group who posted frequently, ignited discussions on music as well as submitting original works.

The performances resumed with All Star- a compilation of artists from various bands who jammed together to have a good time on stage. Notable members of the band include Labu Rahman (Feedback), Upal Ryan (Poizon green), SR Khan Gagan (Brown rice), Moin Zaki etc. The performances were an instant hit as the classics they performed reignited the guests love for music, going as far as crashing the stage and performing with the band, singing along.

Afterwards another break commenced where the organizers awarded the ‘top posts’ to the contributors of the group whose posts received the highest tractions and responses from the members.

Labu Rahman returned on stage with his new band ‘Post office society’. The band instantly won over the crowds with their cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’.

Crowd went wild as more musical performances went underway, performing classics such as Bryan Adam’s ‘Summer of 69’ Dire Straits’s ‘Money for nothing’, ‘the Beatles’s ‘While my guitar gently weeps’ among others. A beautiful performance by Nadia Dora, where she sang Lalon’s ‘Shomoy gele’ and Hason Raja’s ‘Matiro pinjirar majhe’ pleased the crowd. Parthibo performed as well.
