Rhythm fest was organised by a group of youngsters from Lahore. This music fest took place on the 28th of November at Royal Palm Golf and Country Club. There were various opening performers before the main lineup. The main lineup included Hassan Raheem, Young Stunners, and Iqbal. A few of the other performers included Omar Mukhtar, Danyal Zafar, Alemam Elghandour and Raamis. Their normal ticket was priced at PKR 1500 and their VIP ticket was priced at PKR 6500.
The Rhythm Fest was said to have oversold the tickets. The gates of Royal Palm were overcrowded with people trying to jump the gates. The Canal Road was said to be blocked due to traffic and people had to park their cars and walk to the gate. Due to the tickets being oversold, the inside area was also overcrowded which caused injuries. Along with this, it was said that due to the tickets being sold openly to everyone, there was no crowd control which further caused fights inside and outside the event. It was also said that a lot of people who had bought the tickets could not make it inside.
The Flamin’ Hot Soundfest was well organised. There was complete crowd control. Everyone who had a ticket was accommodated and entered. The event was said to have gone pretty smoothly with everyone who attended to have had a great time.
