Rains played spoilsport in the evening as several events couldn’t take place, one of them being the finals of Rogue, the fashion show. The day soon picked up again with the DJ Wars, where Akshit Bhagat emerged victorious from amongst a host of contenders.

Day 2 ended on a high with the EDM night. The female DJ duo Elektrovertz pumped up the crowd and were soon followed by DJ Makasi from Tomorrowland who had the crowd dancing to his beats.
