The Concert which started as early as 8pm, saw some dancing performances as Dj NatureWon displayed his turntable skills with some inevitable songs which got the crowd sing and moved their feet to.

Many artistes came out to support the Lyrical Gunshot but not all of them were able to perform due to the bad weather. Basteror, Gariba YaronZamani, Freeme Tapasindi are among the artists who couldn’t climb the stage due to the rain.
