Much respect to anyone putting on a free event of this size... Entering Hamer Hall and going down to the sneaker stall area was probably the best thing about the day, that said we only stayed a couple hours... A good range of stalls and product, though not much for women, no surprises there... The acts were lukewarm at best, though we didn't see the headliners, muph and plutonic & wikid force breakers, the acts we did see were the community type of acts which were more cringeworthy then enjoyable... But at least they had the confidence to get up there and do their thing...
