The fest, for the first time, will be taking place on a far visible platform — DLF Place, Saket, but has been taking place for years in the Capital, albeit in a small way. This will be on from 5.30 pm to 10.30 pm. And in case you’re still craving for more, Blend performs along with Boomarang from Shilling at the Turquoise Cottage, Vasant Vihar on Sunday.
