The 'Road to Converse Rubber Tracks' saw its regional rounds in five cities across India – Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and Guwahati where the five most voted bands in each city went head to head to earn a slot in the season finale. Over 350 emerging bands from around the country applied for this opportunity. And now the final five finalists from each city will participate in the finale at blueFROG, Mumbai.
