Different artists performed around five distinct stages at VH1 Supersonic. The main stage was dedicated to Pop, Hip Hop, Jazz and Indie Pop. Another stage adjacent to the main stage featured live music by various artists. The music played alternatively at these two stages, providing less hassle of moving around the grounds. The Reggae stage got bigger and better. The BudX Spectrum stage hosted some of the best techno artists throughout the three-day event. The team had also joined hands with SOCIAL to erect a special area called the Cirque De Social Stage.
