It gave four lucky bands, chosen out of thousands of entries a chance to perform live in the three Bacardi NH7 Weekender venues — namely Delhi, Pune and Bangalore.

Out of the thousands of the entries received online, Caesars of the Green, Outdoorsman, Urban Earlymen and Phobia were selected for the Delhi band hunt performance.
For the Mumbai band hunt, Modern Mafia, The Fringe Pop, Drawing Short Straws and The Riot Peddlers were selected. Bangalore saw Scratch Cards, Hungry, Clown With A Frown and the Indus Valley Project being selected among the otherbands.
The final round in Delhi was judged by electronica artist Sahej Bakshi (Dualist Inquiry), drummer of Them Clones, Surojit Dev, and CEO of Only Much Louder, Vijay Nair, in which Caesars of the green got an opportunity to perform live at the NH7.
