Each half of 7 minutes made the players race against time and mostly maiden goals decided the matches. The final victory was awarded to St. Stephen’s College against a team of Zakir Hussain, Deshbandhu and Hindu College.

The second and final round of the Battle of the bands began on the second day of Mecca 2015 with the six bands that were shortlisted on the first day –The Cosic Truth, Knight Shades, Transmigrate, Rangrez, The Hansraj Projekt and Paperboat .
