A number of popular rock bands including Indian Ocean and famed singers like Daler Mehndi and Hariharan are likely to spice up the excitement at the Delhi Games with a series of dazzling performances for over a week.

Rock n' roll band Them Clones is likely to perform on Monday followed by East India Company on Tuesday and Pentagram, led by Bollywood music composer Vishal Dadlani, the day after.

On October 7, Soul Mate will hit the stage while Mohit Chauhan of Masakali fame, singer Daler Mehndi and Palash Sen's Euphoria will perform October 8, 9 and 10.

Singer Hariharan and world famous percussionist Sivamani will mesmerize the audiences on October 12. Grammy Award nominated film composer and jazz musician Louiz Banks will also perform on the same day.
