The Cityscape featured major sports sponsoring organisations such as an obstacle course by AXN, mini futsal by Red Bull and virtual reality ski run by Mountain Dew. The Island featured acoustic performances and poolside activities. Finally, the Global Campus was the epicentre of the festival where the students showcased their national identity in more than 50 booths.
