Local promoters will be given charge of a night in one of the 20 venues located in the city centre, handpicking a line-up from the artists applying. The authentic crafting of the bill has always proven a success, the incredible high quality of the musicians taking stage drawing large crowds of both music fans and passer-by’s.

Last year, on its tenth anniversary, the festival hosted around 250 artists and drawing in crowds that neared the 1000's. So far, the event has welcomed artists from across the globe, including European, American, Australian and Asian bands, promising a great taste of every genre worldwide. Expanding the line-up last year to include both comedy and spoken word, there wasn't a second that lacked entertainment, indicating that this year's artistic array will be even more spectacular.
