Dhaka Rock Fest 2.0, the country's largest rock music festival since the start of the Covid pandemic, was held Thursday at the International Convention City Bashundhara's Noboratri hall in the capital.

The concert, organised by Sky Tracker and sponsored by Banglalink, featured 15 Bangladeshi bands - Warfaze, Aurthohin, Cryptic fate, AvoidRafa, Indalo, Shubhayatra, Conclusion, Shrapnel Method, Brahmaputra, Thrash, The Tree, Subconscious, Aftermath, Arekta Rock Band, and Calypso.

With the concert, Aurthohin's band leader Saidus Sumon (Bassbaba Sumon) returned to Dhaka's concert scene after four years.

The gate of the day-long concert opened at 10am. The show began with a performance by Arekta Rock Band, who hit the stage with patriotic songs before performing two of their popular songs.

There was not much audience at the first part of the concert. However, many fans started to gather at the concert venue in the afternoon.

The Tree, Aftermath, Conclusion, Calypso, Brahmaputra, Spiral Method, Subconscious, Indalo and Cryptic Fate took the stage after the performance of Arekta Rock Band.

Next, as Aurthohin had come out on the stage, they received massive applause from the crowd, who had waited for a long time to see them perform again. Sumon took the microphone, and the band started with "Chaite Paro," driving the audience insane.

This year's Dhaka Rock Fest 2.0 concluded with the performance of Warfaze, who started with their popular song "Prateekkha." After that, they kept on rocking the fans with more of their most popular songs till the end.

The first edition of the Dhaka Rock Fest was held in 2019. However, it could not make a return in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic.
